Don't know much about Colnago history, but that doesn't appear to be a cyclo-cross frame.

No, is a sweet vintage Colnago Roadie. Damn, it fits me as well. Won't bid against you LFR, only wish I had a girlfriend like you.
Nothing says "I love you" to a man (cyclist) than a sweet vintage Italian ride. Girl, you rock, bless you, your boyfriend ought to be pleased. Hook it up with some Super Nuevo record parts and a Brooks Brother saddle BAM!!!!!
dammit Zed, you're right, but I may just hafta anyhowlonefrontranger

It's exactly the right size, and I have some NR bits just waiting for it... and he doesn't really have a decent second bike, just an ancient old POS wheezy Cannondale crit frame with junk parts.
I would if I were you ...weiwentg

even I think that looks great, and I've only ridden fat-tube aluminum bikes.
LFR, are you getting the frame?weiwentg

my heart would certainly melt if my girlfriend (not that I have one) bought me a nice bike :)

How come I'm the one buying bikes for my girlfriend? Hell she makes more money than I do. Hey I switched her from Fat Tubed Aluminum to Sweet Steel and she's a convert. Actually hold on a second...she did help buy my one of my cross bikes for my birthday...sorry I'll shut up now.
definitely keeping an eye on it (nm)lonefrontranger
