    Late 80's Olmo mountain bike frame and fork perfect gravel grinder rough stuff bike

    For sale is a late 80's Tange tubed Olmo mountain bike frame and fork made in Italy. It measures 21.5" on the top tube center to center & 17.5" on the seat tube center to center. There are braze ons for fenders &/or racks. This is for 26" wheels. Canti mounts for brakes. Pictured wheels are not included. Bike is in very nice condition with no dents or damage. It is still a little dirty from the last time I rode it but I'll wipe it down before packing. Its got a great pearlescent purple to white fade paint job. This would make an excellent gravel grinder, rough stuff touring bike on the cheap! You probably won't see another out there. $100. plus shipping or feel free to pick it up. 08904.

    Pics are here:

    ^ That is a neat versatile frame. Whats it weigh w/fork? The era of these ATB are sleeper's. It has the right braze-ons, obviously for 26" but can go with 27" or 700C. Drilled for road brakes. They fit a wide range of riders too and make for terrific loaner bikes. For something different, sure is tempting. Right now I have two in the works and of the same era and frame geometry.

    Cool! Is the bb threading Italian?

    This would make a nice 650b tourer...

    I haven't weighed it but I'd bet right around 5lbs. BB is English. The bike had a full XT group. I'll check tomorrow if a 650B wheel set will fit. I think Paul V's would work for brakes if 650b fits.
