With the begining of the 1980s aerodynamics seemed to be key to the future of cycling. Columbus developed an ovalized aerodynamic set of tubes and lugs called Oval CX. But building bicycles with the new tube set was highly time and money consuming. So bikes using it were rare even in the 1980s. However Vanni Pettenella an Italian master frame builder created this bicycle using lugs and tubes for Colnago.
