> I went back to Huntsville AL for business & stayed this morning for a ride with my old group. One of the guys had a 1 year old Colnago Technos, multishaped lugged Columbus steel with fancy chromed cutout lugs, chromed fork & stays. I didn't think any of the big makers made bikes like this anymore, but then, I don't pay a lot of attention to the modern offerings since so many have gone away from lugged steel. It was quite a nice looking bike, but I did notice that they air brushed the lug edges instead of fine pinstriping. Otherwise, it would pass nicely for a classic. Lou Deeter, back in Orlando.
