Some photos of the new blue Olmo which will replace the blue Gazelle as my new commuting bike. Come summer, come winter.
In honor of David Litts epic Paris-Brest-Paris adventure that just ended unfortunately, it will get a small sticker reading „Frenay-Sur-Sarthe – 1.039km“ on the toptube, overlapping the „San Remo“ mark.
This was a tricky built-up. Uwe from Studio Brisant did some repair of the paint work and I had to ask for assistance with Velosport for the headset and the bottom bracket. I am still not happy with the pedals.
The origin of most of the parts is the Peugeot Galibier that I built-up in winter this year. Most of the parts are Shimano Golden Arrow (105 level of the Eighties) but I decided to exchange the brake calipers with Shimano 600 6200type which are much, much better in terms of brake performance. The Peugeot frame is now sold and I know it in good hands.
This bike has a lot of stuff attache to it, like speed meter, bottle cage, saddle bag, pump and some is going to be added additionally: lights and mud guards. This may not be looking good on a classic bike, however this is a commuting bike and I will be in need of all this stuff.
If anyone is interested to buy the Gazelle „en bloc“, please let me know.
