The purpose of this classic-vintage site is to encourage those interested in enjoying and preserving vintage lightweight "racing" style bicycles of the period from the early 20th century until 1999. These are primarily steel, most often "lug built, not welded, injection molded, or glued. We are devoted to road and pista machines rather than mountain bikes, "middle weights", BMX, recumbent, and balloon-tired bikes. Those bikes have merit, but are not "on topic" for the Vintage Wheeler.

A fantastic frame, hard to find, known for its comfortable ride and very stable in descending. Outperforms other brands in its category. Very beautiful art work (paint)which Colnago frames are known for. Geometry is not sloping, TRADITIONAL, as per Ernesto Colnago it is the best geometry for bicycling, whether you are competing or an enthusiast, because it distributes the weight of your body on the wheels, not on the frame.
