    I found this video of a nice road bike on YouTube, and I have no clue what it is. The video isn't mine.

    Never seen one. But during the 'bike boom' there were so many ten speeds sold, anyone could and did pretty much brand their own. The number of 'brands' is unfathomable.

    There's some tidbits of info on this Sheldon Brown page-

    https://www.sheldonbrown.com/upgrade.html

    I gather from your post you're into road/single speed/ fixed. Cool thing about that side of things is there is soooooo much out there in the way of bikes and parts, there's a lot of build fun to be had. About 15 or so years ago when the fixed gear thing was really booming, I used to convert peoples bikes for them in exchange for the parts I took off. Good times.

    I'd suggest diving into Sheldon's site. Its an insane wealth of knowledge. I can't even begin to tell ya how much I learned by sifting through that site.

    It is a Swiss bike. That is one of the few things I know about it.

    I have been on that site many times before. I am not into fixed bikes at all. It is mostly singlespeed, 10 speed, and 12 speed road bikes.

    Video in many areas look like rattle can repaint. Could be crafty DIY stickers. Rad is slang for radical , and Egolf well ; urban dictionary .

    The primary languages of Switzerland are german and french. Egolf is a german surname and rad is wheel in german.
