    I wouldn't say this is the ideal bike to learn to wrench on, almost none of the parts are standard. You'd be better off with an 80's Japanese bike if that's your goal. That being said, if you're...

    Man, I had the exact same bike! Same colour and everything. It was a fantastic riding bike, steel wheels and all. I wouldn't change anything except for swapping that saddle out for a Brooks. ...

    Sadly the Ofmega derailleur went on another Gitane I sold (and deeply regret selling) a few years back when I needed the money. Here is a pic of it mounted for posterity's sake:

    Thanks Bianchigirll and mkeller234, much appreciated! Yeah it took me a while to get it to where I was happy with it. It was a singlespeed for some time, but that didn't really seem to do justice...

    Old post but I thought I'd update it because I finally finished it. The missing Alan globe decal that's supposed to be on the seat tube is in the mail. Hope you like it!

    I don't have much to contribute other than that's the nicest Gardin I've seen, and I've seen a few ( and owned one, but in different league from this bike).

    Toplines are fantastic cranks, actually my favourite overall crank. I love the fact that you can't see the wrong side of the pedal from the backside of the crank, it's a great finishing touch. I'm...
