Colnago C35 Art Decor - 1997

This C35 is probably one of the last generation, built around eight years after the introduction of this model. The shift lever sockets are clearly designed for down tube shifters and so I decided to install Shimano Dura Ace 9-speed shifters. Disregarding the frame was already outdated by the Shimano STI system when it came to market in 1989, too. The best thing about the late models is of course the combination of the flowing carbon monocoque frame design and the detailed Art Decor air brush.
