Thanks.
Actually Colnago still makes steel frames.
This particular frame is one of the newer ones and made in 2009.

new to me is 2017! it just seems like steel bikes have gone to the side. you can get one but the materials used havent been improved upon anymore. i havent seen a new tubing set out of columbus, and truetemper shut down, reynolds has a couple nice tubing sets but i never see them on a bike and if they are i bet they would cost waaay too much. and what is for sale at even a half decent price has no fancy tubes. i had a landshark once with the thinnest tubes. it was rubber but much nicer than my super thin aluminum frame with starship columbus tubing. that was a noodle with no rebound vs the steel

Steel is nice but no match for carbon fibre.
If you want performance you choose carbon fibre, there is no other way around it.
However if you want a nice steel frame for whatever reason there are still many being made.

I’ve had many carbon. Just sold my planetx pro carbon. Had a Ridley carbon, and a trek carbon, and two cheap carbon frames form china, which were as nice if not nicer than all the others. carbon is nice for sure but its all good and the new ibike coming s aluminum which i’ve also had a million aluminum frames. in my life im sure ive had at least 40 bikes. i used to average 400 miles a week at one point. the bay area is bike racing or just riding mecca

Those steel frames cost more than my entire bike w sram force

Thanks Mate…she is beautiful…
It was a hell of a journey to complete her restoration rejuvenation…lol

Of course there never really finished…it was hard to stop.
Some weeks I completely lost it…I was like a junk yard dog…lol
I can laugh about it now.

It was a deceased estate and at times it felt like is was possessed and he didn’t approve of changes…lol
Lots of things had to be done multiple times. Got there in the end…do another one…:thinking:
