    Reads a little sketchy. I guess they did not want or could not do this thorough kickstarter.

    I would have a better attitude if they had a web site already going with the current inventory and then...

    Yes, "similar to" is a dangerous term. the hubs imaged are the bolt on type and the spacing is no where near for a 7 block.

    Way back, if one was looking for 42 cm wide bars with a hope of obtaining them, it was Cinelli.
    3ttt did make some wide bars.
    Ambrosio did too, but inventory was scant.

    There was a time where 40...

    I think you also have to consider the existence and utility of following cars. That has changed over time and venue. No quick support will push one to self sufficiency. In races like the Paris...

    We live in so much danger.
    That fork would be on danger list.

    Step aside and smile and wave knowing that you won't own it.

    Symmetrical disfigurement, with a purpose.
    The quantity of braze ons and details including the steerer numbers point to a custom build to me. Or, torch work at its respray time.

    I coined the term to describe the multiple pins he uses to hold the tubes in position, it seems to vary but 3 pins per tube per socket appears to do the trick for him, maybe 2 on each chain stay and...

    This uneven wear is also visible on some raw aluminum rims, just more noticeable on anodized hoops.
    I have conjectured as to why, possible deformation of the rim when the eyelet is installed,...

    The way the number is scribed into the steerer indicates to me low volume effort without numeral stamps.

    The other thing I notice is the drive side dropout file modification, the kind of repair...

    The bikes of today are more temperamental. If you have an indexing problem, many guys (no matter the category or age) are running to the neutral service tent or club mechanic to hopefully set things...

    How long did the stenciled down tube graphics continue? And yes, I liked the hand painted striping, but in the 60's and 70's a number of brands had that.

    A number of years later the Mondia Special...

    To recap. Simple Green when used straight or in very strong solution causes hydrogen embrittlement in chains. Micro-cracks form when left to soak overnight or longer.

    Maybe not, the seat stay bridge has been "updated" to take a recessed mounting sort of.
    Probably has typical early 70's clearances for a typical brake, typical reach 700c.

    Masi used that thin on the early Volumetricas but the steel alloy was different. With the light Reynolds stuff a 19 lb. road bike with normal parts and tubulars was what one ended up with.

    From 30 feet away, the UO8 looked a lot like the PX-10, or the PR-10 for that matter. But with any detail the answer is pretty easy.

    I would degrease it and look under a loop at other potential problems.
