Someone donated this to my local bike co-op. I tried to talk him into selling it on Craigslist, but he wanted to be done with it. Headset was in bad shape, and there are a few rust spots, but otherwise excellent. Light as a feather compared to my other bikes.

Love the amazing 80's color

Love the amazing 80's color scheme.


Like it alot, can't believe that co-op didn't more interest in it. good score for you however. I see the columbus decal but can't make out model, cromor? I have almost the same frame post on here, check it out.

The decal is in bad shape

The decal is in bad shape but you can still read "Aelle", which I guess was Columbus' bottom-of-the-line tubeset. Still much lighter than anything I've ever owned.

I've tried to find some info on old Battaglin models/years, but haven't had much luck.

I love the paint job so I'm just ignoring the couple little rust spots for fear of messing it up.
