The Tour de France is a tradition that extends back 99 years, so it’s interesting to note how the bikes have evolved. The Colnago Tecnos frame was a significant development in frame technology, designed specifically for riders under 160lbs. A Tecnos is a rare and collectable bird for ‘Nago enthusiasts and Thomas James Luby managed to bag himself a fine specimen.
Thomas has spent the last five months procuring a full suite of NOS components to assemble his Tecnos, developing, in the process, a deep appreciation for Campagnolo’s C-Record gruppo and their compatibility for correct Syncro II operation. Naturally, tricolore Cinelli cork bar tape was chosen to accentuate the build. See more of the assembly process on Thomas’ flickr page.
