    If it were me I'd be patient. I'd ride the Miele while looking for a nicer Japanese road bike (or better if you get lucky). Cannondales don't do much for me. If you really liked the Miele, you...

    I'm only saying it because I like the bike and the OP...I don't think the group looks good here. Sante is a funky aesthetic and hard to match...I've seen it work, but I think an alloy gruppo would...

    I'd be checking it out if it were near me...I can't see much, but I like what I see.

    I know you aren't looking for an evaluation, but smaller name bikes like this, even the really nice ones, tend to be difficult to sell...even more so if not in terrific condition. To sell them you...

    I would kill for an engraved Picchio chain ring. Not someone I really liked or anything, and not in a messy way, but under the right circumstances...if it were Carrot Head, or Elton John...yes...I...

    That was my suggestion too. Another option if you want to save a few bucks might be Panaracer 26x1.5 tservs. It's a fairly similar tire to the marathon.

    I LOVE it...two Picchio theads in a week! Strange. They're wonderful bikes.

    I think this makes a lot of sense and I can see why a Cannondale would be appealing to you. It's really the same reason I think their tandems ride nicely.

    Out of curiosity, have you ever tried OS...

    :lol: Well said.

    I finally got my SBDU. It came by way of Ed/Picchio Special and was apparently Connie Carpenter's. It's an 83'...seatpost is 26.8, Imperial 753 tubing with drilled fork ends.

    What he said...if it's Worksop it would be a nice, valuable bike in good shape...but with a dent and likely replacement fork? Not so much.

    My Rocky Mountain has the cleanest TIG welding I've seen, a well thought out part mix, a lively feel and smart features. It's definitely the nicest steel MTB to come through my hands (I've only ever...

    This one is tough, and I may be off base. I think it's awesome, but I also think there is a very limited market for a bike like this and there really arent many who would pay a colector premium. For...

    I had a Raleigh 20 that I used while recovering from an injury...it was a surprisingly fun ride - no worse than a raleigh townie bike (though that might be damning by faint praise). Most of the...

    It's not a bike I'd go anywhere near...I just don't trust 20+ year old bonded lugs or carbon. I know there are a couple of members into bikes like this who will disagree...but it wouldn't be under...

    Agree...you have to be patient and really double down on presentation with bikes like this. That said, Mooney isn't totally unknown...somewhere is a 6'4 guy who wants this.

    Paging rocket sauce!

    Early 80s is about as good as I can do. At a guess...82' - 84'. His stuff really is quite interesting with some neat flourishes. Most Picchios I've seen had more over the top engravings.
