looking good, I'm going for track bars and probably a front brake.

So what's the deal with the "Gipiemme dropouts"?


our rides

Well, track bars will certainly do more justice to the bike than the flip-chops. I'm about to change these for 3TTT Competizione drop bars.

About the Gipiemme dropouts: I was just a little bit surprised to read 'Gipiemme' where the paint on the dropouts was chipped off. So I mentioned it.

It is nice to know another fixed Raleigh Record Sprint will ride the streets and roads. It really is a very, very fine bike.
