Here's my Cilo with Columbus Aelle/Tretubi tubeset. I bought it from a buddy while I was in high school in ~1987-88. It originally had all 600EX components and was a lighter blue. I got it resprayed after an RD failure ripped apart the rear wheel and dropout in the early 90s sometime. Decals are from cyclomundo. This is the exact mishmash of components I had on it since college; the front wheel and brakes are original though. I finally glued on the tires and wrapped the bars this weekend.
Rode it for the first time since ~1998 today. Apparently my legs have shrunk - I ended up making a bunch of stops to mess with seat height/position/angle, handlebar angle, etc. After riding my Bianchi Volpe and MTBs, this thing felt like a rocket, with telepathic handling. By the end of my 22 mile ride, I felt comfortable on it again.
