The Faema is a fake; it's really a German "Richter" (rictus??), or sumsuch,
that I had be transformed into a 'Faema'.

That bike is worn out, handling-wise, or else it never really handled or performed, to begin with.

These forums probably have several threads dealing with worn-out (handling-) bikes...this 'Faema' just acts like it is "tired-out"

The REW Reynolds is a mind-bending performer; its handling is as if there were no front forks installed; it just carves thru corners, and it is guaranteed to be STRONGER than you are.

I'd love to sell the Cinelli, too...great name; indifferent performer.

Nothing intrinsically wrong or defective with it; it just seems to ride roughly; it is not a happy bicycle....but, it IS a Cinelli.

Just bringing this thread back to life as i have just acquired another R.E.W Reynolds frame from a local to me person , who first showed it me about 18 months ago but no deal was done till a couple of weeks ago .

It's must have been a stunner originally with all the chrome ie forks , head lugs , fork crown and rear stays sadly the chrome has suffered although the rear stays don't look to bad .

Fork stampings match the bottom bracket ones , just to work out who made it . As this one is not a Woodrup built one like quite a few are
