Hi.  I hope e veryone had a nice weekend.

Two years ago when the Tour of California went thought town there was a Col nago display at the start.  I noticed there wasn't any steel, and the sal esman said they had stopped making s teel frames because racers all wanted c arbon fibber.  Colnago's have a lways been racing bikes, so they have to g o where demand leads them.

Is it possible that they are still making steel frames, but not importin g them to the U.S.?

I hope everyone has a nice week.
