Coors Light Anyone?

First off sorry for the bad picture - its just too hot to mess around so I just snapped a quick one to show

Ive been on the hunt for a Colorado/CSi for a while - It had to have a steel fork - bi-lam lugs and be cool - I passed on several until this one came along - I think my wait was worth it.

DA 8 speed front/rear derailleurs and dt shifters - 9 speed cranks and cassette

Cinelli 66 bars and cinelli stem - ultegra seat post - reissue Flite saddle

DA headset - ultegra brakes - cheap shimano brake levers - R400 I think?

105/open pro wheel set - I had a cool DA9 wheelset that I was going to use but discovered a crack in the flange on the rear hub so this is all I have for now

Most of the parts came off of my Bridgestone RB-2 - only new to me part is the saddle

As always opinions will vary -

picture is fine but looks super compressed.

I always liked these, like the colorway and the coors/campy decals. The whole bike looks great.

Normally no, because you have to drink a lot of them, but this one looks delicious!

Always a classic.

Love it.....glad this one wound up with someone from here. I was watching that one as I've always wanted one of these as well, but already have too many in the stable.

Enjoy it!

That’s a real team frame right there.

Number hanger and non jet tube cable routing give it away.


Very, very cool!

Great bike and build. I am a bit jealous as I have a team Coors light replica frameset in a box in my garage waiting to be built, but it has a carbon fork instead of steel!

Yours looks very nice as well and a CSi to boot. I am pretty sure mine is a Colorado 2 or a CRL with the internal routing on the top tube.

So as I understand the terminology for this bike - it's a Colorado 2 - but to me the lines blur between a Colorado and a CSi during this era. I believe this would have been the last generation Colorado 2 before the CSi came out

I am sure someone knows the details better than me -

I will say that the tubes flair like a baseball bat - with the short chain stays and flared seat tube a 25c tire just fits

Thanks! I just got in some C.F. tubulars for it but am still trying to source the right C.F. brake pads for these older style brakes.
