Colnago built a special bike for Eddy Merckx's '72 hour record but somehow the bike rode with Windsor labels & Ernesto was infuriated. Around '74 my local pro LBS featured a Colnago Super which was so pretty & light but very expensive. Even the regular Colnago bikes were expensive so I bought a Colnago t-shirt instead, heh. Oh well, Ernesto did well enough to be able to sell the company. Different market now with technically great but plain-looking racing bikes. I see so few Campagnolo-equipped bikes I wonder how they survive.
