Just to capture all my research on finding an extended bolt for thick saddle rails used with a Campy SR single-bolt seatpost:

The Campy SR seatpost bolt is rare. It's a Stainless steel 8mm x 1.0mm pitch x 42mm grip. What's rare is that 8mm bolts are normally 1.25mm pitch, not 1.0mm. To support the thicker rails I needed a 50mm grip bolt.

What I found:
8x1x50 doesn't exist in Stainless or in Titanium unless you go custom.
Shops like McMaster Carr, Grainger, or Mister Metric (SJC) might have such a bolt, but either they're plain steel (likely to corrode over time) or you need to buy a minimum of say 30 units.
I finally found a plated 8x1x50 bolt from Fastenal P/N 11114800 and was able to special order it to my local store.

It works! My biggest gripe now is that you need to carry a 13mm (or 1/2") wrench on rides in case it slips or need adjustment. But it looks like I finally lubed the right things and unlubed the other things so it's staying put now.

You should order the 30 units from McMaster-Carr and package them up and sell them on FleaBay as aftermarket Campy Seatpost Bolts for a 1000% markup. :)

That's a very nice Colnago, I especially like the Colnago saddle. Nice touch!

Thanks for posting. :thumbsup:

Hi. I bought this recently, but I dont know much about it apart from:
It has RDV (ROGER DE VLAEMINCK) embossed / engraved near the saddle post
6 Speed Shimano 600
Original Mavic tubular wheels
Seems to be recently resprayed (well I think)

Any more info and a price estimate would be appreciated.
Thanks

For some reason I had been excommunicated from this site. Now managed to rejoin.
I've sold six of my Colnagos over the last three years so now down to only seven. Pics (from SVB where purchased) of three of them. I also have a 1972 "Molteni" a 1968 and 1969 Super (playing card and tipo Roma) and a Mexico. Seriously beautiful bikes.

My brother just restored this bike. It's number 18 of only 55 ever made. The way I understand it, It's a Rominger Colnago special edition made to commemorate Tony Rominger's hour record of 55.291km. I believe it is based on a Colnago Technos. I've seen a number of counterfeit samples for sale recently but this one is authentic.

Can you share some more pictures of this bike? Maybe show some of the unique details of this sample?

Definitely a great bike, not as plush as the C40 or C50 but it wants to be pushed hard :)

I recently acquired this Bike from someone leaving it in the garage for 7 years riding it intensively for 3.
479085


It was originally purchased in Australia with a Dura Ace 7900 groupset and corresponding wheels.

I totally stripped the bike. Removed all bearings, bottom bracket, headtube and made a small makeover.

479086


479087


Bike has now the following specs:

Ceramic speed bearings in bottombracket and headtune
Campagnolo Super Record 50/34 11 speed groupset
Deda Handlebar Full Carbon
Selle Italia SLR saddle
Fulcrum Racing 3 wheels.

the joy of rebuilding it to a full Italo configuration costed me a few weeks but really enjoyed the process.

right now only 1 upgrade is underway, a pair of Campagnolo Shamal wheels.

Its my first Colnago and the ride and Joy is absolutely fantastic. Feel gratefully to ride a bike like this.
