I love my Volpe. Picked it up cheap from someone who found it at a yard sale for 10 bucks. He made out like a bandit with me paying him 100. Totally worth it IMO. My brifters were all messed up - I soaked the left in degreaser and freed it up. The right one needs more work. There is a guy on FRIDAY who can fix a 7 or 8 speed for fairly cheap. The frame is small on me ... right now it is set up with riser bars and mtn bike shifters (cheapest solution at the time to get it workin - before I found the guy who will work on the brifter). It works for me. Does my commute quite well and I love the feel of the ride
