From the Archives: The Benotto II

The May 2014 From the Archives featured, what i believed at the time was the only existing photo of the Benotto (and barely shown at that), the first true racing bike i owned. While searching for something at mums recently a second, previously unknown photo, was discovered. The team kit, i am thinking, places the date at around the transition from 80s to 90s. Looks like i was starting my shift from Shimano to Campagnolo at that time - headset and brakes are Shimano, the cranks are clearly Campy. Wheels by Wolber, with that white Concor saddle, i recently mentioned. Can't be sure about the rest.


  1. It's nice to see a frame appropriately sized for its rider! :-)

    1. Bikes, shoes, and toupees; things that need to fit right to work right.
