Gios Torino Super Record Hi all, Recently won a Gios Super Record http: Mainly, i was after clarification about the date of the bike, but also some info about the 'Super Record' model ie. Also, some of the earlier bikes have a coin in the forkcrown or a dark red 'GT' inscribed. What is the difference dating stiler tornio these and the forkcrown on this bike? Lastly, in my research ive dating stiler tornio - and dating stiler tornio think gratis voksen dating sites uk pohjois karjala on the earlier bikes - that some Gios Torinos have a 'GT' engraved on the underside of the bottom bracket.
Although this one has 'GIOS' inscribed on the seat stays and the top of the bottom bracket, im not quite sure if it has the 'GT' engraved on the underside. Is this something i should be concerned about ive noticed that on Sheldon Brown's 'Vintage Lightweight Pricing guide' he refers to some "Mexican built counterfeits of the early model that possibly can be distinguished by the lack of certain bottom bracket features"?
Thanks in advance for any info, Sam. Ok, I can say this with fair certainty and that is: Welcome to the Gios club. Now, let's discuss the bike: From the pics I would most certainly say it's a Gios but here's what puzzles me. The engravings on seatstays are particular to Gios Proffesional and not Super Record. Another mystery is the top tube. It neither has 3 cable guides which are found on Super Record nor does it have internal cable routing found on Professional and early Compact.
That type of fork came with either Gios Professional or Compact, it has nothing to do with the Super Record. Please take a look at the photos I have attached, the blue one is Super Record the white one is Professional. Yours is much closer to the white one. Last, by looking at the head tube shot, I think I can discern the "GIOS" engravings on lugs, again specific to Professional and Compact. Also, the head tube badge is a sticker, it should be metallic which leads me to believe that this bike has been repainted and restickered.
I would like you to take close up photos of head tube AND underneath the bottom bracket. Let's try and find out what model it is before we discuss other stuff. Also, can you tell me how much you paid for it? Last edited by nenad; at Thanks Ned for all the info. I can see what you mean. Unfortunately i havent received the bike yet, partly because ive been slightly suspicious.
Ill speak to the seller and see if he can send through some more pics of the underside BB and the headtube. I might hold back until i actually clarify some of these issues even if its not a super record, is it definitely a Gios? I have a Gios Torino Super Record one dating stiler tornio its main distinctions is a painted fork with a flat crown which is affectionately referred to as a double nickle crown, ie brass Gios inserted emblems which tended to fall out and were replaced with nickels.
The other distinction is a relatively short top tube in relation to the seat tube. Originally Posted by amicus.

Yes, it does look like a Professional. I forgot about brazed on derailler hanger, or lack of it, on Super Record. Just look at the second picture below, Professional should have internal cable routing like that, the one he bought does not. I find it very interesting I would say it's not "typical". I also haven't seen the Gios marks filled in as stock, something that could've been done the previous owner or frame painter. Originally Posted by Jesse D Smith.

To help clarify things the seller has dating stiler tornio some pics of the bottom bracket and the head set they are on the flickr website at the top of this pagehowever they are a bit blurred.
Not sure if this is of any help mind. However, if this is a professional which from the evidence presented, it most likely is how come the internal cable routing has been replaced? Wouldnt this require removing the original top tube and replacing it with a new one without holes? Could this possibly lead to structural issues with the frame? Last edited by spie; at Yes, it is a Professional for sure, the holes in bottom bracket, the serial number and engraved name in head lugs make this perfectly clear.
The remaining thing is the top tube, IF it was replaced at all I imagine you could inquire at gios gios. The bad news is, you won't know until you receive the frame and ride it Last, I like the bike. Also, plz take a good look at seller's feedback. If it's a big reputable seller, you can take his word for it. Also, let the seller know that you've consulted us at the forums and see if you can get the deal to return the bike if it doesn't turn out to be as described.
