The gfs latest acquisition 😎

I cant keep up with her in the N+1 competition. She received this 1997 Colnago Dream Plus Mapei from Fed Ex last night. It was packed so carefully it could have withstood anything. Today we take it out on its maiden voyage while Im stuck riding a plain old C40🤣🤣
I have to say its kind of cool when youre GF is more into your hobby than you are 👍🏻

From 1997? I'd hate to see the tracking info on that!

Oh! You mean its a 1997 model, not that it was shipped in 1997....

As long as the gf's "latest acquisition" isn't a new bf, I guess you have reason to be happy.

Campy is nice, but Dura Ace is a fine choice for a race machine as well

This particular Dura Ace group is some sort of stupid expensive 25th anniversary edition.

Wrong! The Mapei team used Shimano so Dura Ace so that would be the correct gruppo for the bike. Plus the 25th anniversary is a nice looking set. Campy is fine material for most 'Nagos but a Mapei team would be on Dura-Ace in that era,

Took it on a 32 mile ride tonight in Sacramento, she loves it ! Not as fast as her Pinarello Prince but shifts like a Mercedes. And yes it has clipless pedals, the flats were just for the initial
test run as she is terrified of crashing it.
