In 1952 Ernesto Colnago cut down the family mulberry tree to make space for a workshop. It was in this 25 sq metre workshop that his dream began.
Since then Colnago's have been ridden to victory in almost ever road race on the professional calendar at some point, and even notched up wins in the mud as well with the likes of Sven Nys and Niels Albert riding them.
The 1990 were the days of the first super teams and Mapei was the one everyone admired, with there amazing paint job and kit which to this day still has a cult following. These were the racer and the team that meant at The Velohouse we wanted to be part of the Colnago family and offer these classic Italian bikes to our customers.
