    I still have to much crap in my garage. I couldn't fit it all in without taking a bunch out which would have defeated the purpose. I would like to be back in the queue, please.

    When I ride I will randomly hear a high pitched squeal/squeak. It is either coming from my bottom bracket or rear wheel though I am fairly sure it is the rear wheel.

    I am unable to reproduce the...

    I meant no disrespect to anyone. I thoughtlessly used 'Russian' when I meant 'Soviet'. I can be kind of thick sometimes. I had to re-read that a few times before it dawned on me what you were...

    Very interesting topic.

    It's only wasted if you don't ride it.

    I will share some unsolicited wisdom.

    No matter what you have, what you do or have done, there will be someone, somewhere who will poo-poo all over it.

    Oh wow. Do you have any close ups? It would be pretty cool to have a track frame like that, sort of a 'matching set'.

    So the Gent Wevelgem was a bit windy

    There are "Show Me" and 'appreciation' threads for other brands and models. I don't see or hear much about Olmo's here on BikeForums or anywhere else. I regularly encounter other riders that have...

    Good info. Bandera, thank you.

    Any thoughts on direction of the wrap? Towards the inside as it goes over the bar or towards the outside?
