I recently bought a Univega Nuovo Sport road bike which I believe to be from the 1970s. The lettering in "Univega" has the big V, as opposed to the Bauhaus style lettering.
The wheels are the 597 mm Schwinn 26x 1 3/8 size, which I thought was odd. From eyeballing it, it appears that a 700c wheel would be to big. Anyone know why this bike would have been made to use the Schwinn size wheels?
