Is the red one a crimped seat-tube model?

No, it doesn't have the crimped tube. In fact, both will fit a 32mm tire. I remember the thread with your Cassani, it's a cool bike. Here's a pic of the one you asked about, Schneider is a bike shop in Switzerland.

Some of it, like the crank and stem are gone, but I've still got the seatposts and levers!

here is my zunow: the real reason I usually don't post close ups is that its had a pretty rough life cosmetically, and I use it to commute with.. so its a bit dirty to boot! Advantage of it already being a bit trashed is I feel fine riding and trashing it even more, which makes it my go-to very often. Someday I do want to get a pristine one and just stare at it. meanwhile-- this one I ride. no panto'd components as it was probably just sold as a frameset, and now all the original parts are long gone anyway.







PS: before the comments come in, yes that is a tiny crack line in the seatpost lug- seems to be sort of common as I have seen other Zunow with the same thing in the same place! I examined it pretty close and it seems to just be the paint...but may be more. anyway, years of riding and its not gotten any bigger so.. let it be.

The Olmo Competition was a model that tended to fully indulge in pantographed parts. Mine certainly has quite a bit...

the crank arms and rings are covered with the Olmo name and logo....



the Campy shift levers have the Olmo logo and Italian colors...



the Campy brake calipers have the Italian colors...



the Campy brake levers have the Olmo logo, plus three stars in the Italian colors...



the seat post has the Olmo name on the sides and rear...



the stem has G. Olmo's signature, along with three lines filled with the Italian colors....



as is typical for a number of frames in the day, the fork crown and seat stay caps are cast with the brand name or logo...





all in all, it's hard to forget who made the bike.
