I nearly bought this on ebay a few days ago and I'm now wishing I had! Bright pink. Anyone on here get it? Would love to know what its like and how heavy it is.

I saw it and was tempted, but Bridge tolls and petrol, plus a couple of hours each way would have bumped the price up too much.

Although this has exactly the same colourway as the
one I saw a year ago and the exage mountain puts it at 88/9, unlike that one it's not Columbus Cromor OR, just Columbus. Tre Tubi seems to mean three tubes and renforzado is butted. So a bit like Reynolds' 'butted frame tubes' - probably equivalent to 501.

This one is in much better nick.

Thanks mate 8) Pretty rare over here too!

The fact I've seen two for sale on eBay suggests someone sold them here - I think both were in the same part of the country so perhaps just one shop. Otherwise Google just throws up results in Italy.

I'm guessing it'll have Italian threads on the bottom bracket etc.

Just picked this up and it's every bit as good as it looked!

Except the seatpost won't budge! Hoping it won't be too tricky.

Bit worried it'll be too small.

Its an 88 I think - serial is C88032750.

I even like the mudguards ;-)
