Make powerful turns on the road in this Colnago Rapid Mapei Frameset. Designed by Ernesto Colnago, the Italian master of bicycle frame building. This Colnago Frameset is made of Columbus Genius tubing and designed to last a lifetime.
After a serious crash abruptly ended a young Ernesto Colnago's professional cycling career, he started building frames and opened his own shop. He would go on to work with some of the 20th century's greatest cyclists, including Fausto Coppi and Eddy Merckx.
Colnago's Mega Rapid with its TIG-welded, custom shaped Columbus Genius tubing was the perfect lightweight frame for racing and training hard. This one was made for the Mapei Team and bears the marks of use; please note in the photographs the small dent in the top tube.
