Hi. Nice bike. The Modolo

Hi. Nice bike.
The Modolo Kronos front brake is pretty nice and - as far as I know - pretty dangerous because of its poor braking.
It's interesting the cable path for the geared rear hub: could you please place a detailed pic of the seat tube?
By the way, Gipiemme just made only the dropouts, never made any frame.
The frame is chromed or polished?
Once more, nice bike!

Just curious, why do you say

Just curious, why do you say Gipiemme made your frame? As far as I know, they were strictly a components manufacturer.

surprised me too

it is a gipiemme frame (has engravings on seat stays and rear as well as front dropouts ) though it wasn't a gipiemme bike, but a frame built for another brand (in this case a small local one).

I assume Gipiemme made the dropouts and seat stay caps, but not the frame, in the same way Campagnolo used to make dropouts that a builder would then pair with his choice of tubing.

that's a point

it's aelle tubing... but is it common to make seat stay caps as dropout supplier?... usually you can find there the builder name...

I wouldn't say it's common,

I wouldn't say it's common, but apparently some manufacturers did that. I have since learned that Gipiemme made a whole range of parts for frame builders. Take a look at the 'braze-ons' link here. So I think it's anyone's guess who made your frame.
