I've rebuilt a few Benottos but I have to say that this is the nicest one I've had so far. The frame and groupset got me excited. The overall sad appearance of the bike made me have to get it so that I could make it happy again.
When I found that I needed a bike to ride in the Eroica Montalcino, this one made sense. It was my size and I liked the frame and the way the paint turned out. I had Campagnolo Super Record derailleurs that I had been saving for a project so this seemed like the perfect match. This bike is so smooth and quite. It's a pure joy to ride. With the upgrade from the stock 6 speed freewheel to the current 7 speed also makes climbing not only possible but also quite capable. It's going to be the perfect bike for the 2024 Eroica Montalcino.
