...lucky friend indeed!

This is a very nice package. IMO rarely do gold accents look good (ala hubs, headsets, rims), but the use here is perfect! Plus the components mix is very classy looking and I'm sure reliable. Thanks for sharing

Thanks for the comment. I

Thanks for the comment. I actually love gold accents when used parsimoniously on dark and metallic painted frames. I usually find it sad not to underline lugs in one way or another. My only regret on that bike (built for a friend) is that said friend didn't even consider downtube shifters.
The component mix is definitely reliable and meant to be ridden a lot. What's more, it's a Cilo frame and ,damn!, I love Cilo frames!


Nice saddle and bar tape!
