I made a 13.5 mile post office run (the long way) on my recently acquired Legnano Gran Premio. (Eroica souvenier?) The frame is a little small, but what a great riding little bike. The rear brake cable slipped, so I had lots of lever action, but no rear brake, and no 8mm wrench along, so I took it kind of easy. It's also my entry in the $100 clunker challenge, so I threw some used Gators on it, and some $10 SPD pedals. I've also got a 56cm Roma Olympiade, and this one feels lighter and more lively, somehow. Fun bike.
