Bruno Brazzo

I bought this frame a few years back and took my time collecting all the components. I'm very happy with the way Brazzo's turned out, but one day I'd really like to upgrade to a set of Campagnolo Shamals when I have the cash flow. Oh yeah, my girlfriend (bless her cotton socks) bought me a kick ass original NOS Brazzo cycling jacket to wear while I'm riding this bad boy in the colder months. "Extremely rare example of a road frame made out of Columbus MS (multi shape) tubing, made in collaboration with Gilco design. Each tube of the frame comes in a different shape. Special Columbus BB shell. Built by the famous artisan "Bruno Brazzo", based near the city of Pavia (Italy)."

see, i love them rims on the bike. just makes the look a little unsusal, but thats what you describe as "point of diffrence". i would call shiny rims a downgrade.

Very nice bike dude. Always enjoy when people go for the less popular italian telaistas :) Would just prefer some classic rims instead, like a black boxed low profile - FIR EA60, or others - otherwise, plain porn. What size are you using those vittoria's? Look a bit chuby.

Hey thanks xunga! I really like to find unusual frames to build up if I can, there were and still are so many high quality frame builders that weren't in the mainstream and it's nice to have that point of difference.
I'll probably go for silver rims when I get around to changing them, I just think the whole thing needs to be super shiny and Italiano!
The Corsa's are 23's so I'm not sure why they look so chunky to you, perhaps an optical illusion?

xunga says:

yes, I like that 'all silver' perspective as well - more classic. guess it's from the photo, 23's should look slim. great bike, congrats.

Zeb,Your ride/race(?) a bike that has tubular wheels. You know the feel. Why not for everyday? Or, do you ride them everyday?

zeb, You should (re)discover tubulars. There is no substitute for feel on the road. Vittoria Evos come close at 130psi, but even inexpensive "training" tubulars have a road feel that brings any bike to life. Seriously, it is possible to use just easy to apply adhesive rim tape to secure tubulars if you are NOT racing. I have never rolled a tire despite the fact that I don't use the "Belgian" method of tape and glue. Tubulars are lighter than clinchers and tubes, and so are the wheels. And tubulars (most) are repairable. My point is tubulars are not just for show bikes, but for riding. I am not affiliated with the Yellow Jersey bike shop, but look at their tubular site and be prepared to make the switch.

Very nice! Go tubular on the wheels/tires. It will complete the restoration. Yellow Jersey bike shop has great inexpensive tubulars in classic tan sidewall- 3 for $50. I am riding them on my Japanese track bike and will do so on my Cinelli soon. I used to ride only tubular tires back when no one had or rode clinchers (70's). It is good to get back- and really not more trouble than clinchers, and oh the ride! Open Corsas are great, but also try Vittoria tubulars. Anyway, good luck- nice bike!

Thank you, I definitely want to change the wheelset at some stage so I'll look into tubulars when I do. Thanks for the advice.

If you plan on riding it, i think these wheels are great. a great ridable vintage looking wheel set and theyre clincher! but yes, and old school tubular set would be good if this is an art-piece/collectors bike

Yep, definitely going to replace the rims when I get the chance. Silver Omega V's would look smart!
