2017 Colnago Arabesque

The 2016 Colnago Arabesque is an homage to the tubes of the Master frame and the flourished lugs of the 1980’s Arabesque.

Colnago unveiled two strikingly different steel frames in the mid-1980s: the Master, which featured the star-shaped tubes that would become a Colnago signature and the Arabesque, which had more conventionally shaped tubes, but lugs with significantly more flourish. The Arabesque proved less popular than the Master, and was produced for only a year. This rarity, however, would eventually turn the Arabesque into one of the most sought-after Colnagos by collectors and retro buffs.

According to Colnago, an employee was walking in the basement of the company’s Cambiago, Italy, headquarters and factory when he happened across a forgotten stash of original Arabesque lugs. Those lugs are being used to build a limited run of “new” Arabesque frames—in Italy, nearly 30 years after the bike’s original debut. Everything about this frame make it a classic and truly elegant bicycle that offers a ride unlike anything else.
