531 TreTubi/60cm/1970






Bought the frame set in 1998 or so and gradually built it into a rugged daily commuter. Currently in the shop for a re-configure. Not totally sure, but I think it will go back toward original, in flavor at least...
Strangely, this highly visible bike is the one I was riding the only time I was ever hit by a car- a red light runner tagged my rear wheel and spun me around, but I didn't go down, and the only damage was a broken rear fender and light.

Added to two clusters:

Pack mules and 50.4

The Nervar Sport cranks - all the low-Q of the Stronglight 49 and the TA Pro V, with a little less freaky French crankpuller weirdness. What's the gearing?

Hi, this has my favorite

Hi, this has my favorite gearing- 28-40-52. TA rings on the Nervar arms. Thanks!
