Here We have a near perfect condition 80's Cilo Swiss bicycle serial #88486

Made in switzerland with entirely shimano 600! including derailleurs, shifters, crankset, pedals, headset, and hubs. Sadly, most of the tubing sticker is peeled off but it looks like columbus steel. The lady I bought it from said she only rode in 3 times when she bought it ten years ago and I believe her. The handlebar tape doesnt even look used and the turbo saddle is looking sexy. The tires were dry and old but had that extra rubber on it like those new tires. I pumped them up and they hold air! Just needs a tune and it's ready to go. Can't wait to ride her.

Copped some Nike cycles shoes on CL today because they came with speedplay pedals. Finally I get to try out the speedplays that came with the cannondale! Sadly the shoes are a bit tight (size 10) but it's so much easier to clip in and out.

I am thinking about selling this bicycle btw: DANIEL KIM if you're reading this, come buy it!

Dat Tandem

Made in China, its called the Forever
Probably the smallest ratio ever, but it gets the job done
Peep the rear drum brake.

Also finished fixing up the Cannondale: new tires, cables & chain (still needs bar tape)



Accidentally won two TT helmets off Ebay. I can't afford to keep both. Help me decide; which one do you like?
