After a few weeks of waiting and about $45 buckaroos for a new freewheel I was able to ride the 1980's Italian Steed yesterday. I must say the ride quality of good hand made steel is rather good. Smooth is the word that best describes the bike. I have not yet tried a new high end steel bike but I gotta tell ya....steel may be the next new one.
