thanks a lot!
Please check the dura ace BB for BSA or Italian thread. I made that mistake wirh my Merckx...
Readers, evening ride.
Is this an old bike? Scarab seems like a modern company to me? Happy to be corrected though!
Ever since Gaston posted that, the Baywatch opening tune is stuck in my head...
So close yet so far.
Damn that's a nice bike!
how did make the quill stem thay low?
There's a little bolt on top of the stem, usually a 6mm.
Loosen it and if all goes well you will be able to push it down as far as @krankers did.
Don't forget to tighten it again!
Yes as withered_preacher said. Some fork steerer tubes are tapered inside and won't allow the stem to go all the way down, I had a concorde previously that was like this.
Yes, my steerer is tapered close to the bottom of it. I’ll cut my squill but I need a 90mm length bolt to make it work. Thanks
I submit my old raleigh royal, long sold. Forgot I'd done this build. Excuse the odd bar angle
Far too nice to sell on - 'one bike to rule them all'.
that's such a beauty, exactly what I wish to have as a road bike
Need to know what size bottom bracket I needed for my '91 Pinarello Montello? Original bottom bracket is DA 7400 bottom bracket and crankset.
I think it's probably Italian threaded, if that's what you're asking, as I once rebuilt a Pinarello of a similar vintage and it was ITA. The other dimensions/specs/type will obviously depend upon what crankset you use. Do yo know which cranks you want to use?
To check if it's Italian thread, just measure the width across the bottom of the BB shell, i.e. from the flat drive-side face to the flat non-drive-side face. If it's 70 mm then it's Italian thread. If it's 68 mm then it's British thread.
Super record 11 on my Serotta Colorado
Just finished this. Had to put it on hold after going back to work after lockdown
Edit: excuse the long cables. Waiting for new cable cutters
My slightly more modern (94?) steel Pinarello is Italian threaded
Rad build! Love the paint on the frame.
thanks, I already figured out. Its a BBR-60 ITA for shimano cranksets and GXP ITA for Sram.
