I was missing a very cool Bottecchia I owned a few months ago, so I began chasing a oportunitty to get my hands on another Italian classic road bike. A completely stock Olmo Gentleman in Columbus Zeta tubing suddenly crossed my path, and I now ride this beauty every day in my commute. It is in fantastic shape, even the bartape is original. I think is quite unusual for a bike with 30 + years to have been ridden this little, the previous owner told me it has really low mileage. I confirm, as the chain and components are almost new, the bike was very well kept throughout the years. Only thing I´m planning to change are the pedals (not the original ones), the tyres and the saddle (with a period correct one, probably a Turbo).
The bike is fitted with a 3T cockpit, Weinmann levers and brakes, Ofmega cranckset, Ofmega BB and Ofmega headset, Mavic tubular rims on Ofmega hubs and Campagnolo Gran Sport derraileurs end shifters. Everhing working in perfect conditions. Sorry for the crappy pic, wil upload more photos as soon as possible.
