More room on this one, at least side to side. Not so much to the seat tube. 28's not possible.

Fastest bike I own. Rarest, too.

But I know lots of you are great photographers. What have you got?

When I look at this image I really know why I do not like the modern modern mantra of all black components and matte paint bikes. Yes, this is Italian classic artistry, but even a lowly Peugeot UO-8 and Fuji S-10-S bikes of the 1970's had great looking paint and elegent graphics. Higher up you had the English masters like Bob Jackson and Hetchins. Now it is all giant graphics and large component names that resemble NASCAR race cars and driver suits.
