    Oh dang, new page disrupted the flow.

    @Lolo Thanks for the advice. Something like these will do the trick then?

    Forgive me — I thought it was OK to use this term when referring to a set of components from Italy. Won't do it again.

    So — cables for retro campag groupsets. Talk to me.

    I have an 80s Campag Athena gruppo with DT shifters. Looks like the cables don't exit the brake levers from the tops, but instead from under the hoods.

    As much as I'd love some NOS campag original cables and housings, I don't think it's worth it.

    Ideally I'd like white outers. Anyone know any good and reasonably priced options out there? Have googled but not had much joy.

    Yes that’s the one! Thanks for the info.

    Will post some photos as the build progresses (and stick a wanted ad up for the parts I need).

    Cool ok. So no stepped ferrules or other such needed?

    The slowest TT bike in the world is starting to take shape (finally got it shipped to where I live).

    Picked up a nice Campag Athena groupset — still need some bars (ideally Cinelli LA 84) and a seat post (unsure of which diameter I need though — my crappy callipers read 26mm-ish). Also got to get cables.

    Looking at the BB and wondered if anyone has any advice on how to cable it? Seems it's a Cinelli "Spoiler" BB, but not much info on Google on how to actually wire it up properly. Some hasty images I just took...
