    Cool Italian

    Spotted this while on holiday in Tuscany, Italy. I have no details, I was just struck by the simplistic beauty of it. The wooden handlebars were uncluttered with only the front brake lever, while the green and brown combo just works.

    That's awesome man. Thanks for sharing that random find. Kinda made my day. It's cool to see when a bike is still someone's pride and joy like that obviously is. A lot of thought and work clearly went into it, it's clean, classic.

    That's what I like about track bikes, zero clutter. And I like the skinny tubes of a steel bike. But I do have front and rear brakes on my fixed gear. Damn, I need to go ride that thing!

    Wow. Thanks for posting. I just spent the past 10 minutes staring at every part of that bike.

    It is a good color scheme but it looks pretty cheap to me...like the Italian version of pure fix or whatever they call em

    Strange, I didn't consider its cost when I saw it, just an appreciation of another cyclists passion and interest.

    Not everything in life is to do with how much something costs but YMMV

    I'm the same way. You see some cool old pre-war bike still in use in Europe with the brakes and levers linked with a rod rather than a cable how can you think "Man, cables would be nicer." or "Now if that had a Ti frame and Rolhoff hubs it'd be really interesting." Even with old cheap road bikes with intricate lug work, you just gotta love the work that went into those bikes.
