I've been riding this most at the moment, and I use it for vintage events, as it's in used condition. it doesn't matter if I stack it, like I did in
L'Anjou, Saumur,
I have to admit to re touching a few spots , some cable rubs in particular on the head tube
bike needs a buff up, I have to add fresh bar tape

Looks great , nice pics with the new camera ...& one of the nicest colours IMO
I ride my nuovo Mexico nearly every day & love it ... I find they are a very responsive comfortable ride tight angles & turn & climb well :D
