You may have noticed in the first picture that something isn't quite right about the brake levers. At first, I thought I just had them installed at different heights on the bars. After closer inspection, they don't match. (The hoods, BTW, are reproductions I got from Italy on eBay recently.)





So it goes.

Switching to a stem with a 26mm clamp let me use a set of older shield logo Cinelli bars.



The saddle that came with the bike is a nice Ideale of some kind. I'm not sure if I should just ride it until the leather breaks (or I do) or if there's something I can still do at this point to preserve it.



Finally, the rims it came with are interesting. I've heard about sleeved rims, but this is the first time I've had a set that you could actually see that it was sleeved. Anyone know anything about these?
