I remember that bike. It hung at Il Vecchio's for a few years before the distributor wanted it back. Nice bike indeed. First triple? Makes me smile. --------------------------------------------------- I don't know why F.Pinarello would make that claim about the first modern triple, and i won't venture a guess. However, I though that this Battaglin Pinarello in question was made out of KL tubing and Not SL as F.P. is claiming. Somebodie's memory is not quite what it could be, but it might even be mine.
cheers.
