f*ck me sideways... excellent
Hey guys and girls.
I’m looking to give my lovely old Rossin some 10- or 11-speed Campy love. Looking for opinions/tips/advice on the following:
1) Black or silver groupset? Black seems to be much easier to find, but with the silver headset which I’d like to keep silver should look nicer.
2) Any idea if I need to substitute mid or long drop brakes? I did a similar conversion on an old KTM with Shimano 105 a while ago, and the new brakes didn’t have enough reach.
3) If I go silver, any recommendations on shiny silver wheels / rims to match?
4) Is there any point, besides weight savings, in fitting a carbon fork?
5) Where can I find neat looking barrel adjusters..?
Black group with silver wheels and yellow saddle !
didn't @getoutofbed have a silver chorus groupset for sale?
@Glws yes, that’s what inspired the post :)
Go VMB or vintage...
My Rossin and my VMB 9s indexed 70'
I'm looking for the same headest as yours...
Bar and stem ID please
Cannondale same as GT stem and Nitto M106 : )
Still here, got some interest but nothing confirmed currently :)
Just finished rebuilding my Peugeot 753 Pro with DA9000, which I think suits the frame much better than the previous SRAM Red, and my new Farsports / DT Swiss wheels. Rides really nice!
That's proper good that. Love the red popping out from behind the cranks.
Thank you, yes I think the subtle Tricolore is great!
Good news my mate sold the Eddy Merckx bike for £1000 to a lfgss member.
His lucky day I know what you said is true buyers market. Like you cinelli looks the nuts will always sell easy
Its a lot of money, but it would cost that and more to build it. Theres £300 + of tyres and finishing kit there.
Nobody's been ripped off. And its a beautiful bike.
Thanks for kind comment. Is literally a brand new build he hardly used the bike.
One thing must be said:
Steel frame plus ahead
I will never get
I agree looks far to chunky a quill looks much better I stuck with a quill on my neo retro
I think I'm going to get this once we're done with this pandemic
Front rack would really set it off.
what a strange fetish
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
