New Big Fix-ish Raffle on FGG
$17.50 per ticket, 60 tickets available. What do you win?
A pretty damn solid conversion. Quality (IRO) wheels, UN72 BB, Tange (!!) cro-mo, lugged, and all the braze-ons still on it. Even if you are against conversions, you could make this a pretty sick road bike by putting gears back on it...
