What makes you think this is low end? It's got chrome lugs, fork and stays. I don't think they'd waste that on a low end offering. Does it have a tube sticker?

The paint and decals look very good...

Wow, what a beautiful transformation!

The bike looks downright high end now. I really like the yellow bar tape with the yellow wall tires to match the decals. Also glad to see you get rid of the...

I had an Iverson Charger sting ray bike as a young teen, and it was the most fun I've ever had on a bike.

I rode the heck out of that thing everyday, all day, and it never let me down. If the fit...

They lost there top contender early when Nibali was rightfully ejected, yet they fought on and brought Aru to the...

Wow, really?

Looks like the original to me. Chrome fork crown and lugs along with the chrome fork and seat stays gives it that classy 80's look. Colors look good to. Put an older Shimano 600 group...

Now that Aru is only 3 seconds down, and unlikely to get the win, "Gulpgulpski" will be proven right.

Had Landa pulled Aru up that climb, he could have still gotten the win, but given Aru the...

Is there a point to these type of seat stays?

Do they make a bike a better sprinter? Climber? More comfort?

I'll go with my 78 Colnago Super.

Fits me like a glove and it feels very light and nimble going uphill. I also can stay on top of a bigger gear with her than with my other bikes.

Looks great!

I'm glad you picked her over that mystery bike.

I would pull that saddle back a bit however, and if the shifter cables allow, because they look tight, roll the bars up some. Would...
