Hi!

been out of cycling for a few years now, but recently found a bike at the thrift store and am finding myself becoming obsessed again. $20 Columbus steel with campy hanging on it will do that to a person.

hi!

Get 10 posts and put up some pictures.
Just say hello (politely) to 10 people, that suffices.

in the C&V section there is everything from the $100 Clunker Build Competition, or threads showing museum quality classics.

it can be fun. Just donít take everyoneís comments seriously.

Iím not quite sure what the bike is... I know itís a Miele because of the pantograph on the seat stays. I know itís a racing frame because of the Columbus dropouts without eyelets. All the decals have been a stripped and it was repainted, probably the time someone added a carbon fork with a 1Ē threaded steerer, campy mirage group, and Mavic rims laced to campy hubs. Has a 600 tricolor headset and Superbe Pro seatpost and front derailer. Seatpost is 27.2. Iíve since added a Velo orange saddle, Zaffiro pro slick tires, bar tap and some early 90s deore lx pedals so I can ride in whatever Iím wearing. It rides like a dream.
