In the past Colnago has aligned itself with motorsport, Ferrari and Maranello, but with its latest limited-edition bike it appears to have changed direction and is heading for the catwalks of Milan.

Colnago has collaborated with Italian luxury shoe brand Tod’s to create the Tod’s T Bike. In Colnago’s words: “Two of the top Made in Italy brands united for a project that embraces urban mobility and celebrates the Italian lifestyle.”

According to Colnago, “Tod’s T Bike… interprets the desire for sustainable mobility with style and reflects Colnago’s desire to go beyond the traditional horizons of high-performance cycling to explore new languages and new scenarios.”

The bike is limited to 70 pieces, will cost £14,500 and is also available to purchase in Bitcoins.

Beneath the racing green and tan orange paint is a Colnago G3-X, which is Colnago’s gravel bike (and is not actually made in Italy).
