Owned By: Mario Romeo

Frame1938 Ciclo Romeo; frame size 22" seat tube, 23" top tube
WheelsNisi 36/36 sprints
ChainsetF B 5-pin single chainset
PedalsSheffield with toeclips and straps
GearsVittoria Margherita (Tipo Giro di Francia)
BrakesUniversal stirrups and levers
Stem/BarsMake not known
Extra detailsTo change gears, the rider must stop pedalling and twist the top part of the lever which allows the 'flippers' on the chain-stay to move back and forth pushing the chain into gear, this has to be done while pedalling backwards.
Then the chain tension can be manually maintained onto the slotted teeth once in gear, the rider can then resume pedalling.
This takes a while to get used to but does work well, other features include nice lugwork and internal top cabling.
As my surname is Romeo it gives me great pride to own this superbe machine.
Thanks for reading
