I was told by CODAGEX of Belgium the worlds biggest COLNAGO dealer! Colnago building steel framesets it was not so much the demand, it was because C OLNAGO had VERY LARGE stock piles of STEEL TUBING! Beter to be used than to be tossed out. On the other hand, check out COLNAGOs WEB-SITE there is a luggeded steel frame being listed>>>>>>>>>>With no fork? 4 years ago we sc ooped up 400 COLNAGO forks.....For reals.
