This is my recently finished CBT Italia. It has Gilco tubing but I've no idea what sort of tubes they are - the fork has a Columbus sticker and it's a nicely put together frame. Got it for next to bugger all, the paint is chipped and it was a horrible mess of odd parts, so this is an improvement.

The crankset is Mavic but the l/h crank is Campag GS. Hubs are Mavic and the rims are MA40s, tyres are Michelin Dynamic. The stem is a Bianchi-labelled ITM and the bars are just cheapo things from the LBS. Calipers are Campag, brake levers are BMX and the bell is from my '76 Dawes and has "Chamberlaine - London" stamped on it; I think that's the bike shop that the Dawes came from. It's a nice light bike with a comfortable riding position and the bell helps get strolling pedestrians off the cycle-paths as I'm bearing down on them.

Regarding my rattly chain. I haven't put the new chain on yet but I have heavily oiled the old one because it was running dry and... it's now completely silent :oops: :roll:

I went into Tokyo Fixed Gear yesterday lunchtime. With all the internet hype and legendary hipster following, I was expecting track stuff everywhere, hip hop playing, cycle couriers, graffiti, polo covers, someone doing fixie stunts in the shop... but I was a bit... disappointed :cry:

This was my Gios Aerodynamic about 6 years ago - before it got the full resto treatment:

I'm running a fixed-gear conversion on a Battaglin full carbon race frame, as well as using this for my blasts along the towpath and fire roads to work (ridden the Southdowns Way in under 10 hours too):

.. my current fixie whilst the Hotta is having the seat pin reamed out !
good rigid power delivery but it does have a bit of 'spring' in the seat boom which is good at reducing the smaller bumps from the appalling UK roads
it is a Carbon Sports Total Eklipse frame. Fantastic Green or Blue flip / flop lacquer on the carbon frame - hard to get a picture in the blue.
