fine with me until the hang up part, then, what a waste. May as well hang a photograph of those pretty chrome nervex lugs. I rode the Cinelli today, who knows what tomorrow. whatever it is, that ride will add to the provenance and patina of that bike. Found out all sorts of new things about this Cinelli's characteristics since riding an older Italian unnamed earlier in the week, and the Bianchi pista in between. Happen's that way for me, each ride teaches me different things about the bike. You can, in my book, justify those changes by riding it a lot.
