Omino Small Japanese Racing Bike @ Pedal Revolution Refurbished Bike Update
After laboring to google “Omino Impact Attack” I (Joel) was unable to come up with much information on this awesome little lightweight bike. There was one website that, based on the photos, seems to be affiliated with the brand but the website is 99.9% in Japanese. Perhaps someone reading this can help translate (the google could not).
What is for sure is that this is very attractive and unique bicycle. The frame is aluminum but has smooth looking welds that look like fillet brazes but I am not sure it is possible to fillet braze aluminum. Maybe there is a welder or metal guru in our audience that can help sort this out???
This bike was fitted with very fancy Shimano Ultegra triple cranks and a 9 Speed 105 drivetrain and brakes. The bike is equipped with 650C (E.R.T.O./I.S.O. 571mm) wheels to maintain a short racy wheelbase while eliminating the toe-overlap that can plague smaller race bikes with 700c wheels (I.S.O. 622mm) that don’t extreme angle out (think of riding a chopper motorcycle) the fork and degrade the bike handling.
A tallish Nitto Technomic Stem Stem, ESI silicone bar wrap, and narrow Soma Highway One Bar were added for comfort and killer looks.
This is a great bike for someone around 5′ 2″ tall!!!
