    serious C&V eye candy

    ok, I hate the term "Bling" but its the only term that fits other
    than eye candy, if you can think of another let me know, I'll change the title.

    So anyhow I'm cruising ebay looking for another catch of the day $10 masi kind
    of deal, and ran my usual search for "C record" and came up with this.
    No, it's not cheap, but damn. . . . .


    and yes, that's 24k gold plating!

    here's the link if your interested in bidding on it:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/1987-ICS-Campagn...mZ260160892504

    For when a 50th Anniversary gruppo just isn't good enough...

    That sure is pretty, but I fear it will never see a kilometer of use.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    ICS plated the whole C-Record group, Super Record too.








    The real question is: what's the grease-nipple looking thing on the seatpost?

    Am I the only one who thinks the above bike is just awful looking? Yuk, I "wouldn't be caught dead" riding it.

    Like a drug dealer's ideal of a bike. Kind of against the grain of bike culture.

    You have to look at these in another light. In the brass instrument world, there's a trend toward gold-plating for some mythical weight and resonance enhancement--although it's arguably poorly-defined and mostly-unsupported by science. As a trombonist, I find a gold-plated mouthpiece has a certain feel against the lips that is pleasant, and the look is a plus as well. If you look at this as simply a design choice, it's not so bad. It's the popular culture that links gold=gangster that makes this stuff ugly. Notice it's not covered in a lot of "ice" and other crap, just a bit too much gold plating. A little less plating, a tasteful choice of plated components, and this would be astoundingly beautiful. But then, it'd look a lot more like the 50th anniversary Record, wouldn't it?

    Internal seat post expander (like a stem -- no seat post bolt on the frame).

    The phrase "tres gauche' comes to mind. But whatever. A few gold bits would be cool but that's waaaay over teh top. But I sure like the deraileurs.

    C Record doesn't do anything for me. I got free groups for 2 years back when I was on a sponsored team. I thought the stuff sucked and had no character. I much prefer Super Record. I was amazed at how much my old beat up C Record sold for on Ebay

    You build a glass case for it and keep it on your desk.

    Ride it?

    OK - I'd have it!

    I don't think the bike is represented well in the photographs - they seem a bit washed out.

    I do think the Olmo is more attractive though.

    That bike is drop dead beautiful. I can just see it now in dark green with matching bar tape and Brooks saddle.
