Molteni revamp

I built up the Moltenized Corsa appropriated from Walter initially with 11 speed SR/Chorus mixed group.

Kinda soon after to re-vamp it already, but...

Quickly learned what a short front center the bike has. As well as it does fit me, pedaling thru a slow turn or U always nets a toe tap.

So I figured as a non geared bike it would put me in a different mode riding it. Hoping this will allow me to tolerate it being how annoying each time I forget and get the reminder. My big feet don't make it any better either.

I really like everything else about it. I even really like the Nitto Rando bars I decided to give a go around with.

So as a pseudo SS bike sporting a SRAM Automatix rear wheel it is actually a 2 speed. 55 and 78 Gear inches approx. it shifts to the over driven gear [1.37/1] at about 90ish RPM.

If I decide not to take apart and sell the frameset off, I plan to take off the last of the geared bits. Also to put on the Record Carbon brake levers I just got.

It is fun doing the 30 mile river loop to downtown on it.
U-turns not withstanding...

And Purty too...
