NoGlider - Your rebuild looks great. I'm not surprised you're enjoying this bike so much. Back in late May I'd crashed into the back of a car (my fault). That hit crumpled the downtube & snapped the toptube of my Volpe. That was my first new, 'expensive' bike and man o man do I miss it. Unfortunately, Bianchi won't sell me a frame/fork only and I don't want the stock components. I'm 5'10 and I'd had a size 58. If I find that bike on CL or Ebay in that size, I'll be back in the Volpe-club.

BTW - the last few months before the wreck, I'd fitted her with Compass 38 Barlow Pass tires and, while clearances with my fenders were a little tight, wow what a cush ride.
