    I wouldn't know. I don't recall seeing a shop sticker. I picked it up as a frame/fork at the SF Bike Swap and then passed it on to its current caretaker Grand Bois.

    Color on the saddle? I have a white (repro) Rolls saddle. It's a solid 9, except for some by the rub by the logos on the sides, making it more like a 7 overall. Probably less than 500 miles, but...

    I think it's certainly worth a try. That RD will have plenty of capacity to handle the gears. I've never run into this problem personally (still stuck in the 7-speed or less dark ages ;) ) but I'd...

    I see it, too. Both photos seem to have been taken from a very similar angle. The Galmozzi appears to have a steeper head tube as well as less and later bend to the fork.
