What a deal. This would look sick with some 10 speed Veloce/Centaur on it.
If only it was bigger...

You are a wise man. 2009 Centaur is what I had on the bike for a couple of years.

If the buyer wants to stay w/ Campy, I'll throw in the hard to find 28.6 Centaur FD for 20 bucks.

Italian Style in the New World

A little info from a Paceline Illuminatus:

Miele was building bikes in Mississauga (just west of Toronto from the early 80's to the late 90's). Their early high end bikes were made and painted by Colanago, with Miele engravings on the dropouts, tops of the seat stays, and the fork crown. I have a 1987 Columbus SL with the shaped tubes that colnago was using at the time. I was working part time at a local Mississauga shop and racing as a junior for a local team they sponsored. We were riding these and were able to tour the factory (not the Colnago factory ).

The owner of the shop was friends with the guys running Miele; they were all from the old country. They later farmed out frames to other builders in Italy (now painting in house) before finally moving all production in house in the early 90's once they were able to match quality on the upper end frames. There is the providence of the frames and no matter how you shake it they were great bikes and unbeatable value for the dollar. By the way Miele is the Italian word for Honey.

If I didn't think it might cause a divorce I would have you send that to me. I even like the paint!

More times than not I find that the bikes I do a double take at when going for lunch are Miele's

Lovely bikes. Pretty and well made. The other ones that fit the bill from back them were the Gardin's. Same sort of thing, Italian family making lovely bikes in the new world. The Gardin's didn't have the ... delicacy ... of the Miele's though. And that 022 tubing is great stuff.
