Buying Advice (Gitane, Olmo, Bridgestone)*Pictures*
I am looking at the 3 bikes can anyone give me any input if they are worth the price.
56cm Gitane Road Bike. Very low mileage bike. VGC. Has Suntour drivertrain, Weinmann centerpull brakes, Rigida rims, and a handsome Ideale #90 saddle. 10 speeds.
And the other is
Olmo Italian Competition Road Bike. Shimano 600 crank set with bio pace chain wheels. Shimano Sante brakes and deraileurs
$150 (No pictures)
Bridgestone racing bike with shimano equipment. Model 700. Year 1984. 21" frame

Don't know abouy the value, but I would rather spend $200 on the Olmo than $160 on the Gitane.

OLMO is a smokin hot deal, Gitane is overpriced.
Run and get that OLMO quick! It will not last.
Stop reading my posts!
which one fits? Either/both: get the Olmo, assuming you can stomach the paint, it's a much better bike. Not that I have anything against a *good* Gitane, but that Ideale saddle is the only real stand-out feature on the whole bike. Prices seem good/fair to me, but it depends on your location.
slow as I ever was
I love Gitanes, but the Olmo appears to be a better deal.
You guys have been a world of information thank you so much. I also came across this:

The Olmo is exactly my size. I will go a check it out. I think they are willing to negotiate.
