Vintage meets modern. Bought the frame locally from a bike shop, and I acquired all of the parts to build her up with all modern Italian parts. Nearly every single piece on this bike is Italian, down to the tires and the bar tape, with the pedals and the computer being the only exceptions.

I've ridden this bike on a century, and a lot of 40-50 mile country rides. I absolutely love it, and there's not a thing I would change. It fits me perfectly. It is my perfect road bike.
