    Thanks for your reply. I'm by no means a colnago expert but the mega master was a different kind of frame Colnago built in the late '90s. my best description of the frame is that its made of Altec aluminum, the top tube resembles the master top tube and the downtube is oversized but is triangular. I think the mega master later became the asso I'm waiting to receive the frame over the mail. Unfortunately, I don't have pictures of it. colnago-mega-master-frameset.jpg. Could I assume that all Colnagos made on those years had the same diameter headtube? so a record threadless 1inch headset or a chris king 1 inch headset should fit?

    Yes. Itíll have a 1 inch head tube. Colnago didnít go to the bigger size until the early 2000ís. A Record headset would be a good choice too.
