Gave up trying to get my bike shipped across the country after I moved, didn't really have the budget for a brand new thing, and a local shop had this for $700, I figured working on it would be neat, so I guess I'm Italian now. Not daily rideable until I replace the brake pads (just ordered some Kool Stops), unless my Italian cycling dream involves emulating someone flying off the Poggio into the Mediterranean. One of the brake hoods is torn too. Possibly going to replace the front brake with a dual-pivot, maybe a silver Campy Centaur.

Rolled the Motobecane Grand Jubilé out of the basement and rode it around the block today:



I'll make a half-hearted attempt to refresh the cheap Atom pedals, but might just grab a pair of MKS Sylvan touring pedals.

My unique Concorde Prelude.
According to the info I have seen, the Prelude's were built from SL tubing, but this one is PRX.
According to the same info, Concorde did not use PRX at all.

Changed up a few things, removed the Cinelli Criterium bars in favor of Cinelli Giro d'Italia road bars, and replaced the absurd straight-block Campagnolo 13-18 freewheel with a slightly less absurd Suntour 13-24 freewheel, and got new white bartape (thought about other colors, but white seems like the best option)



Thought about doing the "correct" thing and routing the cables over the handlebars, but I need to put a light and possibly computer on them. Also got a bike shop to repack the front wheel bearings, which were getting a bit noisy.

Next on the list is a replacement Columbus decal (for some reason, De Rosa put them on the outside of the clear coat meaning they always get torn up), and possibly a smaller crank, because a 53-42 is maybe not the best for Seattle terrain.

Selle Italia RS80, which I gather is basically the same thing as the Turbo

It's easy to see why. That's a beauty.

My Schwinn I use daily to get to school. Took it all apart when bought but it just needed cleaning. All bearings were fine and everything in good condition. Must've been stored inside.
