    Can-o-beers are pretty stiff for those of us under about 5' 11". If that's you, I wouldn't consider picking it up - would only make you miserable riding it.

    You did pretty well. The bike is at least a rider and a keeper. Not sure how collectible it is right now, though. It's probably worth about 300-450 Euro, possibly more to a Bridgestone collector....

    I've seen a little too much poseur behavior in my lifetime for it to bother me. In fact I think it's hilarious how the little bastards in Greenpoint and NoLibs are now trying to imitate Thomas...

    Three of my current rides have 25mm Conti Sprinter Gatorskins, which, while not vintage / period correct, ride fantastically well. I have a fourth with the same tires in 22mm carcass. Wiggle has...

    Am assuming the bike is done with lug-work and is of the '80s vintage. Strada LXs tended to be lower-end offerings in Bianchi's Sport line. Don't expect Columbus SL tubing, in other words - the...

    Got one set on the ratbag Colnago (otherwise Campagnolo Nuovo/Super) and another on the Carlton.

    They're the best friction shifters ever made, hands down.

    The Tommasini Super was the result of about 3 months of searching and patience.

    The Colnago I got recently just dropped into my lap, without much effort - but I was at Velofest in Trexlertown.
