As it now lives in my garage. Swapped for a more reasonable
seat post, and some road pedals I'd been saving for something
special, but other than those, tires, tubes, various lubriccants
and anti-seize.........plus about ten hours of work
as it came to me.
Fully chromed, which may be why a lot of these seem to lose
their paint. It's miraculous this has as much paint and decals as
remain, because the chrome has not been roughed that I can tell.
TreTubi??..I'm not sophisticated enough to tell one way or the other.
The only tubing sticker is Columbus SLX on the seat tube. It
certainly meets or exceeds my standard for "laterally stiff, yet
The chain stays are pretty large diameter
and ovalized vertically. I can't tell from tapping.
The frame overall is lighter than the TreTubi Bianchi I have, but
certainly not the lightest bicycle i have as configured currently.
I managed to get 700x25's on it, but anything fatter in a tire
would be impossible. The rear wheel geometry is tight. The
chainstay bridge is really interesting, I'll try to post a photo of it.
Anyway, I'm having fun with it.
Nest up in the renovation que is a Raleigh Professional
in that red orange team racing color they used for a while.
Nice bike, but kinda hideous color.
It's all there and the paint is good, so it should
go pretty quickly.
