Looking for an Olmo cap.

Anyone have one they want to sell? I haven't been able to find one, and I have a problem with having to have a cap for the bike I'm riding. Thanks

Columbus TreTubi, cranks, brakes, and levers are junk. I would've offered $40, but no more.

Any opinions on the Basso

Is it worth it? Maybe if I can get it for $100?
