The Genesis Volare looks great!

The green portions around the BB look a bit random length wise. Is that intentional?

Thanks for your kind words, kgt.

Here is my other girl friend from the early 90's with early 90's outfit in shocking purple pink!

Frame: Colnago Olympic made in early 90s
Wheels: Campagnolo record hubs with sigma rims 32 holes
Cassette: 9 speed record
Brakes: Campagnolo record
Crankset: Campagnolo record 172.5mm, 53, 39
Seatpost: C-record aero
handle bar: 3ttt Morphe
Stem: 3ttt
Levers: Campagnolo 9 speed alloy
Saddle: SLR italia

The Colnago Olypmic feels a little heavier than the Ciocc but offer a bit more stiffness. The straight forks reduce headset and handle bar vibration at fast speed decent and sprinting. I would say the Ciocc with the Genius tubing is more cater for climbing. Even by today Columbus and Reyonlds standard, the Genius tubing at roughly 1.6kg is very light. On the flat and off saddle sprinting, the slightly heavier Colnago star tubing and straight forks offer me a bit more confident with less flex.

Lovely Rossin! If the front wheel matches the rear, it would be so bad ass!

I like steel bikes. The first one isn't too heavy.
