The retro Echo has a Tange Pres­tige tube­set in a lugged frame that looks far more ex­pen­sive than it ac­tu­ally costs. The long stretch from sad­dle to bar is book-ended by great con­tact points, en­hanc­ing the live­li­ness ev­i­dent in the frame. Creme may not have the rac­ing her­itage of some ri­vals but this is a great frame with good kit for a bar­gain price. Only let­down is the brakes. At times, they’re sim­ply woe­ful. Frame Tange Pres­tige dou­ble butted seam­less chromo / Fork Tange cromo, lugged crown / Wheels No­vatec hubs on box sec­tion dou­ble wall rims / Trans­mis­sion Shi­mano 105 10-speed (50/34, 11-27) / Brakes Tek­tro www.cre­me­cy­
