Colnago is a manufacturer of high-end road-racing bicyclesfounded by Ernesto Colnago near Milano in Cambiago, Italy.
From the late 1960s through the 1970s, Colnago was generally regarded as one of the builders of the world's best custom road race frames.
The company first became known for high quality steel framed bicycles suitable for the demanding environment of professional racing, and later as one of the more creative cycling manufacturers responsible for innovations in design and experimentation with new and diverse materials including carbon fiber, now a mainstay of modern bicycle construction.
Ernesto: "Merckx was an up and coming champion, and I was an up and coming bike builder. So it was a real honour to work for a great champion like Merckx. It helped us to grow... when we made special forks, and special bikes." This included the super-light steel frame used by Merckx in 1972 to break the world one-hour record in Mexico.
