    25mm tires feel every bit as fast and provide more cornering security for me than 23's do--some of it is psychological, but as mentioned elsewhere, research also supports this. On my modern bike,...

    vincent_r, that's a sweet bike! I confess to just having paid over $300 for a very similar Peugeot Mixte for my wife... :)

    What Headset for early 80's Olmo

    I'm looking to upgrade the headset on my Olmo--how can I tell whether it's Italian or English threaded? It's an early 80's, SL-tubed Olmo. TIA!

    No worries, and thanks! Do you reckon its about a 53cm? I've found a similar "Sprint" model on Pinterest, with interesting original RD / brake cable routing/hardware.

    Peter_B, good call. The steerer tube is "rifled," and I think I can make out "OLMO" on one of the drop outs on one of the fork legs. So it looks like it may be an Olmo after all. Thanks for...
