    Olmo Super Light F&F -

    Size: 60 c-t (around 58 cc) x 57 long. Headtube is 17.3cm in length.
    Threading: Italian BB and headset
    Seatpost: 26.8mm
    Paint: titanium grey, blue and fluo yellow/lime.
    Tubing: Columbus EGO. Silver brazed.

    Front derailleur tab: misaligned!

    Price: 230eur + shipping/PP fees (Normally ~50eur). I'm in Paris for local pickup.













    Derailleur tab:

    Misaligned but I can get derailleurs to fit straight on it however it can depend on the washer used - some allow a greater range of alignment than others.

    I've CX-50 cranks and think they're quite nice. Q-factor seems a little wider than road cranks but hasnt been noticeable while riding.

    Doubt you'll beat those german prices. Bike24 has the 2017 models on sale, + shipping comes to 80eur/68 quid.

    Anyone with Velocity A23 rims have any thoughts on them?

    Considering a pair 24/28OC as Racotec have them at quite a reasonable price right now.

    Spend too much time reading up on anything online though and you'll eventually read enough negativity to believe something is nothing but junk - in the case of A23s there's quite a bit out there on QC issues - uneven brake tracks, general lack of fit & finish, spoke holes cracking, easily dinted, soft..

    Still, that's often just a small and vocal %. But it does make me wonder if I should just get some R460s that are even cheaper, or something else - the new RR 411 look ace but hard to get hold of.

    It's a good size :)

    Fairly sure I saw other sizes the same price this morning apart from the 49, but I could have read that wrong. Certainly you're right, just the 59s right now.

    It's these here, but they were far cheaper in the sale 10 days ago :)

    Stiff is alway the first thing I hear. A priori I'm OK with that, I've already got comfortable bikes. So with this I'm aiming for something hopefully good on fast rides and in the hills but without breaking the bank

    Yeah, expensive for sure which is why I've never been keen on most of their frames. But as said above the experience is often on sale. Mine is the 'speciale' version (better fork) and was very reasonable on sale from a store in Italy
