Old School Italian hand made steel & 28c = best ride ever

Notices
Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Old School Italian hand made steel & 28c = best ride ever

As a trigeek by history and someone who road 19c on aero rims back in the day I am amazed at the ride quality and overall fearlessness I experience with the acquisition of a steel frame and 28c tires. The bike while a size small 54 to my normal 56 and only 5 speeds on the down tube is a pure joy to ride.

Giddy up...
