Anyone have a good place to look for Colnago frame deals? I am looking for my first road rig and i have heard good things about them.
Today i did 30 miles on a CAAD 4 with 120psi (I am 225lbs)and i think i know why everyone calls them harsh. Sounds like steel is for me.

This company in Ireland has low prices on the Master X-light steel frame, but they have very limited sizes and colors. You can request a specific size and color, which they may to able to acquire (no promises though).

Bicycle World, in California has a large stock of Colnago frames, at prices somewhat below retail. Their website is

Chicagoland Bicycle ( also stocks Colnago frames.

You won't find many real low prices on Colnago steel frames - too much demand.

Be sure you know the proper size, they come in 1cm increments, so there's no excuse for getting a frame too small or too large.

I bought a Master X-light from Totalcycling this past January.
He does have limited sizes in stock. Fortunately for me a 56cm fits me just right and he did have that in stock. Wonderful bike! Comfy, handles great, climbs well, does everything well in my opinion.
I think I got a pretty good deal on it. $1050 for frame and fork.
I also bought a Record 10 group from him as well. $1150 for the group.
Mike was extremely nice to deal with. Due to a little confusion with the credit card company and me changing the order on him, things got delayed a week or so. As a way of making it up to me he threw in a Campy Record carbon seat post for free. Not a bad compensation for waiting an extra week.

All in all it was a very pleasant buying experience, I'm glad I did it. recommended.look271

I have nothing but good things to say about these guys. Great customer service, great prices. Items shipped in about the same time it takes to get stuff from the states.
