I picked up my Roger in Des Moines. The backstory is that the father of the woman who sold it to me had a tenant in NYC who could not pay his bills and used a pair of Argentine bikes to pay off the rent. Mine was fairly complete (missing only one of the brakes) with a fantastic paint job and a bunch of cheesy campy knock off parts (except for the hubs which are pelissier). The wheels are clinchers and they are one of the worst built stock wheels I have seen outside of a department store bike. I tore it apart and never rebuilt it. I need to build it back up one of these days and I definitely need to take better pictures of this bike.
