    Fiorelli Milano San Remo... rider..

    Hello, I have found this web site helpful over the years. Thought I would register.

    I used to ride a Fuji Royale in high school and college and put some 5000 miles on the old girl. She sat in my basement as I raised my kids and rode mountain bikes for commuting and dad duties. I dusted off the Fuji and enjoyed skinny tires so much that I did the "fixed gear" thing with a Fuji track bike off e-bay for under $300. Sold off the Fuji Royale, for a kick back two speed hub for the Fuji Track.

    Last year I decided to get a decent road bike again and right or wrong went for vintage Italian steel.

    I have now a tidy Fiorelli San Remo in stock form sans tires and grip tape.

    I don't like that French Crank on there... I want it to be all Italian. Although perhaps it is just fine as I am French/Italian/German. Perhaps I need a German part to round things out in an even more odd way.

    Like others on the net have said the Modolo brakes don't grab as much as I would like, I'll swap out pads before I get some Campy NR brakes or Giplemme side pulls.

    I really enjoy this frame... Panasport Gumwalls pumped up to 120psi and I can eat up the miles here in flat Indiana.
    The frame is comfortable and tracks nicely, and on a recent ride with some carbon fibre bike riders I wasn't complaining about the road beating me up like they were.... and I lead the draft on my 30 ish year old machine and 46 year old body.

    Anyway happy with a bike that I wanted when i was 17... and you don't see them passing everywhere. I met up with this carbon fibre crew on a few miles out of town... I don't know what they thought of me using tennis shoes in toe clips with gumwall tires.... till I took the lead on the draft......

    This 46 year old want's to deliver subs for Jimmy John's one afternoon on the Fuji Track with fixed gear in place.

    P.S. I love ridding my Fuji Track with 2 speed kickback on rollers... great set-up and gearing for a good workout/2 speeds all you need.

    Do they measure the Indy ride on the low or high side of the track... it could be 100 or 125 miles depending on how high up you ride???

    I am not into carting myself off 50 or more miles to ride in a pack, did plenty of Patch Rides in the 1980's. For now I will do my rides close to home... and if I pack myself up it will be to go camping or sailing... I don't live on a lake!

    We just use are bike computers for the mileage.

    Most riders stay out of the pacelines.
