Went to a job today and the customer had an old Olmo with a Campy grouppo, Modolo Speedy brakes, Selle (San? Did I get mixed up?)Marco Corsica saddle and the above wheels. Really looked nice, anybody know anything about them?

Depends on which model that you are talking about. I had an '87 Olmo Sintex made of Columbus SLX tubing nice lugs, etc. Rode great. When I decided to sell it, the mechanic I took it to for a tune-up bought it before it ever went on the market.

In my size the traditional geometry had a relatively short top tube and steep seat tube angle.
