Has anybody ever purchased a Colnago frame from him? Looking for some feedback. Seems to be legit but wanted to see if anybody has first hand experience. Thanks.

Been buying Colnago frames from Mike since 1999. Wouldn't buy from anyone else.

Have only heard good things about Mike @ Maestro.

Yes, two Colnagos and a Bianchi (some years ago.) One of the good guys; what he doesn't know about Colnagos and racing bikes in general isn't worth knowing. Plenty of anecdotes and 'tells it how it is'.

My experience wasn't so good.

Great experience through to delivery but I was supplied a track fork with no brake drilling for a Colnago road frameset. Mike's response was that the hole was there but had been filled up so could be drilled out. There didn't appear to be any filler visible when looking inside the steerer tube so I contacted Colnago with the serial number who advised that it was manufactured as a track specific fork and not to attempt drilling it. Mike begrudgingly agreed to exchange but got nasty when I suggested that he cover return shipping costs, accusing me of trying to screw him.

At that point I was just focussed on getting the correct fork so paid for return shipping and received a replacement. Worked out OK in the end but out of pocket for his mistake, poorly treated and wouldn't buy from him again.

As previously said, what Mike doesn't know about Colnago isn't worth knowing. In the Uk at least, the ONLY place to buy a Colnago.
