Colnago Super Wins Design Award

According to Colnago their Colnago Super is a winner in the 2010 Design Awards from WALLPAPER magazine. We featured photos of the bike back in September, 2009, here. The Colnago announcement:

"The iconic style magazine 'Wallpaper' has selected Colnago’s ultra-stylish Super single-speed bike as a winner in its 2010 Design Awards. The Super’s head-turning looks earned it selection in the Best Rides category of the prestigious awards.

Inspired by track bikes of the 1980s, Colnago’s Super harks back to the company’s artisan heritage with its classic lugged steel frame. Chromed lugs at the head tube and fork crown boost its eye-catching qualities.

Sporting a flip-flop hub that gives the choice between fixed wheel speed and single-speed cruising, the Super fits in with the growing demand for simple urban bikes.

Beautifully finished in cream with dark red panels, the Super’s head-turning looks are completed with a Vintage brown leather saddle and tan-coloured bar tape.

Colnago’s long-established build quality ensures that the Super can cope with potholes, while its tight geometry make it ideal for zipping through busy city streets."
