La Mia Bicicletta

My new daily raider.
Italian steel lo-pro frame.  My favourite frame style it has a sloping top tube for aerodynamics.  Gives a good aggressive stance.  Rear wheel is tight up next tot he post, chromed rear legs.
Sideburn sticker!  Lovely hand-filed lugs also on view.  Steel Nitto NJS stem and Japanese headset.  Rear brake.  Admittedly the handlebars are a bit 'fixie' but are comfotable.  This bike is fast though.

700c rear wheel and 650c carbon-fibre front.  Still got 700c forks on it but I can't afford new 650s.  It's kinda like the 70s choppers where they increased the fork length but didn't rake the frames so the bottom rails sloped upwards.  It looks "wrong" but because it worked and they just did, it's OK.
