Oh yes! I really like that, very nice indeed!

An unusual brand, not heard of it before, but obviously a very good pedigree.

Very handsome bicycle. Assume it's quite new?

Goes to show there is much much more to Italian steel than the normal colnago , pinarello etc.

Look like Veloflex ones to me - not that cheap but very nice to ride and a good fast TTing tyre. I think Veloflex was set up by some ex-Vittoria employees when Vittoria finally shifted all of their manufacturing to the Far East.

Lovely looking bike too, not a marque I've heard of before but obviously in the classic Italian mould.

That is a truly beautiful bike.
Are those cork plugs in the handlebar ends?

I hope you ride many miles on it slotcar55.

Mark.
