Best Steel Ride Ever - Review by Craig

I’ve been racing since the early 90’s – former Cat II. I have had the honor to ride Bianchi, Fondriest, De Rosa, Pinarello, and Colnago – yes I favor the Italians. During my racing times and today nothing has the feel of the Master. I owned a Word Perfect in 1996 and I purchased a 2008 version. They are identical with the exception of the carbon fork on the 08.

I’ve owned and raced steel, carbon, and titanium – nothing performs like Ernesto’s Master. Predictable, agile, fast, and smooth. It sprints as well as it climbs. Great ride that is extremely quiet with GREAT durability.

Master X-Light is a master piece. - Review by Tids

The Colnago Master is exactly that. A master piece. The famous clover leaf tubes on the frame and the detail in the construction are magnificent. It's great to see that it's still hand made in Italy in Ernesto's basement. The quality and depth of the paint PR82 is superb. It glistens in the sun so much that it almost blinds you. It gets a lot of comments from the bunch too.
The ride of the Master X-Light frame is very very responsive. Every inch of force placed on the pedals directly translates to power on the ground. It's cornering ability is sure footed. It feels strong and stable.
The weight is not overly light but built up with a careful selection of parts you can build your Master X-Light to around 7.5kg's. That's heavy by any means.
I would highly recommend one as a second bike for a dry sunny day bike. You'll love it.
