Ernesto Colnago, and his nephew Alex Colnago, will be at WHEELWORKS in Belmont on Saturday, September 26th. The WHEELWORKS address is 480 Trapelo Road, Belmont, MA.
There will be a group ride beginning at 8am from Wheelworks led by Wheelworks staff and Soren Krebs, General Manager for Colnago America, Inc. Participation on this ride will be by invitation and pre-registration only. There will be some Colnago Demo bikes on hand for the ride, however the availability of sizes are first come, first serve. Riders should be intermediate level or more advanced and be able to maintain a 17 to 19 mph pace for approximately 40 miles. 40 riders will be the maximum allowed and you must be pre-registered.
Beginning around 11am, until 4:30 pm, Ernesto Colnago will be stationed at a small table in the fitting area of Belmont Wheelworks with a saddle, a sharpie, and a measurement drawing - along with his mystical creativity and talent, these are his tools to create the bicycle of your dreams. A trainer will be set up so Ernesto can observe riders on their current bikes and their pedal stroke. Even if you do not own a Colnago (yet) you are encouraged to bring your own bike & shoes as Mr. Colnago will see you on your existing bike, make adjustments, do a fit and recommend size and model. All bike brands are welcome!
Ernesto Colnago will also be happy to sign your Colnago bike or any apparel, books, or posters.
His nephew, Alex Colnago, will be on hand to translate, as Ernesto does not speak any English.
Pre-registration for the ride required, and recommended for the fit session.
