Colnago Extra Power
2007/8 Colnago EP equipped with Campagnolo Record throughout.
I’ve owned this bike for seven years and used it very, very little.
It’s been up and down Mt. Ventoux twice and competed in two Etape du Tour’s.
In the last two and a half years my whole lifestyle has changed so the bike hasn’t been used at all, which is such a great shame. So it needs to be sold.
A beautiful bike in excellent condition that’s always been lovingly cared for.
The Colnago EP is widely considered as one of the great modern classics.
Reviews regularly refer to it as ‘the best bike you’ll ever own’. I have to agree!

The Colnago EXtreme Power goes beyond the status quo of double butted composite tubing and lugs. The lugs are compression moulded using a process so refined that no finish work is needed on the lugs before painting. The front triangle features triple butted oversized tubing paired with longitudinal reinforcing ribs that run along the interior of the main triangle. This technology, known as 3PRS (Power Reinforce System), stiffens the frame by over 30% with negligible weight increase.
The CNC-machined titanium bottom bracket insert is matched to a compression moulded bottom bracket shell. Oversized 17x35mm chain stays with Colnago’s Leaf Chain Stay design mate with the bottom bracket for unparalleled stiffness. Colnago’s B-Stay completes the platform to provide the legendary ride of every Colnago.
The Extreme Power is a fine example of bicycle engineering brilliance, it rides like a dream and manages that perfect balance of comfort, agility, and stability. Stability is so often overlooked in the road market, but few bikes descend as confidently as an EP.
