|Colnago Tecnos Frame Weight Info Wanted||boneman|

|I have an opportunity to buy one of these NOS for about $440, including fork.
I've been to the review section as well as the various Colnago manufacturer, distributor, retailer sites, etc. FWIW
As I recall this was a model introduced in the early 90's, after the original Master, Olympic etc. and was then made from Columbus EL-OS tubing. This one comes with a threadless Prescia fork.
Anyone know what the weight of the frame might be? These are usually quoted by manufacturer's in a 54 frame for some reason. Generally Colnago itself has not quoted weights except to say that the frame and fork are under 5 lbs.
Thanks in advance.

|Colnago gives the frame and fork weight as under 5 lbs. The Prescia fork supposedly weighs, per Damon Rinard's old site, about 690gr which would give a frame only weight of 1.55 lbs. Seems a bit light for DB steel tubing. Any thoughts?|
