In the golden era of cycling, prior to the UCI banning of pursuit bikes and low pros, one man was responsible for some of the most unique and progressive bicycle designs. Gilberto Colombo’s industrial designs were widely renown in the automotive industry as well as the cycling world. Gilco Design has a great gallery of sketches and notes, all of which are in Italian, so get your translate on.

Ever wonder who was behind the 1985 Cinelli Laser? Well, there ya have it.

Thanks for the heads up Giuseppe!
