The Italians were a little slow to market with mountain bikes. By the late 1980's they finally decided that ATBs were more than a passing fad. Both Pinarello and Campagnolo had long and storied histories as road bike companies before jumping into mountain bikes. Both companies were known for their Italian style and finish quality. The frame is stunning with the pearl white to blue fade with chrome accents and lugged construction. The Campy parts have a expensive look to them while keeping the famous Campy bearing quality. The components have a lot of motorcycle influence and were somewhat ridiculed at the time for being over-built and over-weight.
