With the Iowa Caucus behind us, I’m feeling my definition of an “old crappy 10-Speed” can be as broad as their definition of an “old crappy Republican”. So with that, comes a notso-10-speed 1950s Olmo. It’s just a couple of derailers and freewheel away from running for office of the OTSOTM. And just as we’re an unfortunate two party system, Jez is faced with the old-bike-liker’s equivalent: Conservation vs. Restoration! Let the comment debate begin! (Who should we get to moderate it?)
Hi from England, i have just come across your site searching for old Olmo cycles when i came across ‘Dans Gents Olmo’. I thought you might be interested in seeing my old Olmo. If you have the time i would like to know your opinion on what you think i should do with it (conservation v restoration) as i would like to ride it. I have many more photos should you be interested.
Regards Jez Speed
