Photos and review of my new RO Double Balance Wheel Openworked
Friends, As promised, see below some better pics of the 15407ST I received a few days ago after a multi-year wait, as well as an initial review. Design: This is my first RO, so I'll talk a bit about the overall model. The design is very angular and sharp,...
