Raced this weekend @ Northbrook , IL on the velodrome. Charlie Ollinger was there with the Vendetta. He did very well in the sprints and the lap race. Only racers that were faster were on extreme low racer bikes...no draft! Charlie was never lapped. Charlie was nice enough to let me try the Vendetta. Much higher B.B. , lower seat/laid back , and lighter than my Silvio 1.0.. Very nice. Gary.
