Rebuild is probably too strong a word. The drive train and most of the bike are still original. But thank you.

But hmm, I just remembered that about a year and a half ago, I started breaking spokes on the drive side of the rear wheel. I replaced all of the drive side spokes only, and it's been fine since then, so there is a bit of a rebuild.

I know someone with a 58cm Volpe, a bit newer than mine. He might be willing to sell it. Should I ask him? He's in eastern PA.
