how did you like this?

and was that crankset stock componentry? i found one of these from '84 a few months back on a local cl for 350 complete, all original, and mint. of course, it had sold that same day before i got out of work. been looking for another one ever since. the gitane kilo to me is kind of like "the one that got away".


This frameset was very nice, nice quality lug work, and was very light for it being steel of course, but you know that. I never really did look up what came on the bike stock new. So I cant tell you if the crankset was orginal, but the one it had was very nice for the setup. It is a shame you missed out on the one you found, I sold my frameset and crankset with the HS for 550. It was a tad to big for me, so I never really got to fully enjoy it to the fullest. I would like to find another one someday, I love the geometry, the quality, etc. Yes you can say it is the one that got away, but it went to a great new owner that is loving it and riding it like it should be!!!

at least we hope.

i would've ridden it better ;)
and it sounds like you did pretty good on that sale. but anyway, thanks for the input. i appreciate it.
now go ride your orbea!


looks good
