My Green CSI

I though I posted this before, but I was doing some bike cleaning this afternoon so decided these pictures should be shared. This was one of my best forum-related purchases. It will need a set of proper 28mm tires. It’s also temporarily out of service new cabling. Maybe it will also get new pedals, but I’m still in the middle of contemplating whether to switch pedal system. One thing particularly interesting here is the lugged construction with a fillet-brazed headtube.

Pics! I had one with a 1 1/8” head tube that was bi-laminate. Super nice bike, but it was a bit too long in the top tube for me.

i know you have experience with all of those reasonably obscure italian carbon bikes, how do you like riding this classic steel beauty compared to those performance machines?

In many ways I prefer the nice carbon bikes, but there's something I feel in riding a CSI that I don't quite have with the carbon. For some reason, this actually feels like it handles better when you're moving downhill fast. I am looking forward to comparing this to a modern steel frame.

for sure that is cha ching green.one of those wonderful serotta colors that pics really don't do it justice.
may be tough to get 28's to run with that fork.they are super forks but not a lot of clearance,25's seem to be the max with the Reynolds forks,maybe try and pick up a serotta steel fork and 28's can be run no problem

I guess with that close of a junction between top and down tubes, there's really no room for lugs?

It's a really nice green.
