This is my father's Gios. I love this bike. He's very proud of it too, he went for top of the line everything when he bought the bike in about '84. It had never been built up. He raced on this up to Cat 2 in the 80's until my sister and I were born. Then it spent a lot of time in the garage rafters. It sees some use now, luckily. I got him a pair of Super Record pedals to replace his old ones that were beat up from mad tyte corner scrapin' in the criteriums, the dust caps wouldn't stay on.

This bike can also be found in the Gios Historic Register (#16), which is totally badass and contains lots of bike porn.

The illustration is one I made for my dad for Christmas. It turned out nice. Desktop here, be nice and let me know if you want to use it for any other purpose.

I had the same thought when I read through the spec-sheet. Nice bike

Minor correction

Turns out it's actually a 12-17 corncob. My dad told me "that cluster is older than the bike. We didn't have those 11 tooth cogs back then" haha

You got a cool dad


Thanks, he definitely is! He

Thanks, he definitely is! He has a ton of stories, including some about his and his fellow riders' attempts to draft behind / keep up with Eric Heiden, with little success.

He has my respect
