I like that basket, but I think it should be called a gondala. Expect a package from me - I sent you a Chihuahua to ride in the navigator position.

Love the basket, but lose the ribbon. Too much aero impact ......

My only thought on this is old pro mechanic's tip don't clamp the frame by the top tube because you might accidentally bend it

I love this thread. I've been thinking about doing the same thing with a Colnago frame I have but no longer use as my primary road bike. I've got some French, Italian, and MUSA parts for a sort of Colnageaux. Just gotta find some brakes; maybe Mafacs are long enough.

"v531xc pal, you are the only one who truly understands me...(sob sob)"

oh ...and don't forget to hang your bike at its top tube on the bike stand. This part is uber critical, it's our secret handshake.

3) 650bx38 tires
4) Fenders
5) Bell or horn
6) Platform pedals

What do y'all think?

This is what a couple hundred years ago was known as an Italian with the French disease.
