1980s Otero Road Bike

I bought this frame beacuse I wanted to build myself a fixed gear bicycle. After 2 years of happy riding I decided to give this rad frame the use that it was meant to. A road bicycle. It was made in Madrid at the Otero workshops at Calle Segovia circa 1980 with Columbus Aelle tubing and lugs with Campagnolo dropouts. Although not the lightest of the frames, it's an amazing ride. Slowly I gathered some components, mostly Campagnolo to build this bike that I love. It's an open project. Steel is the truth.

More Info:
The seatpost modification is something I really regret. Since I was learning how to use a lathe at my work I decided to adapt this 27.2 seatpost to fit in my 27 seatube. Now it fits, but it´s a bit ugly. Lesson learned. Don't play with components and calipers.
