A. Lang is adding our international selection with this W German 10-speed.Â He suspects it is a Gudereit.Â Or perhaps it really is a Pinarello!
Right now, I’m in a love / hate with my bike. The seat post was rusted to the frame and now… I’ve destroyed it (the seat post not the frame), tools included; hacksaw, screwdriver, needle nose pliers(2 pair, one pair was destroyed in the process), and a now bent and ruined pair of vise grips. Unfortunately there is still a little more than an inch of seat post left in the tube. I think I’ll leave it.
The back story about this bike is kind of a fluke and mystery. I live in south Texas, moved here under a year ago from cow town columbus ohio. I’ve been searching for a road bike to use as a beater/commuter to take to school and back, about 12miles one way. I grew up on bmx, skateboards, etc… I found this bike on craigslist of coarse, the seller had no clue. he got it a year ago at a garage sale. I invested a whopping $30 in this beauty, he was only asking $20 but he got back to me very expeditiously so I tipped him. I could care less what kind of bike it is, I’m just happy to have found it. The funny thing about the bike is that someone sometime in it’s vast history, decided to put ‘Pinarello’ stickers on it. I hope nobody got bamboozled into buying a W. German/Italian bike in the past. For now it’s all mine.
Thanks A. Lang
