The light grey anodised wheels really set the frame off nicely.

Not sure about gears from the fishing tackle people on an Italian frame mind... :D

Looking even sweeter - you know a brown leather saddle and bar tape would set it off beautifully and match the toe straps just so. Although then again, what do I know about appearance....

Don't get me wrong, I know they come with Shimano - it just doesn't seem right to me.

Then again I did a taste failure and put Campag on an American bike, so what do I know?

I also can't believe you are selling such a lovely thing. Luckily I'm too short to swing a leg over the frame...
