I've been lurking here for some time now and decided to finally take a few shots of my bike and get out of the closet. A few months ago I had helped a friend build up a single speed and got bitten by the vintage bike bug. Sold the carbon skattante (the skat , as my brother called it) and started spending a lot of time researching/looking for old bikes. This part of the world seems like an old bike black hole. Finally I found an old Bianchi (Japanese frame) and paid way to much for it but stripped it and painted it. About the time the paint had dried, my brother in law found me a nice Guerciotti of early 70's vintage with Campy NR. I bought it and had it shipped to me. Here are a few shots (for East hill)
My question is-I replaced the chain with a spram as recommended by the Sheldon Brown site. The thing is, sometimes when shifting it seems to hang between gears and ride over them. slipping along. The chain side plates are much smaller then the Regina that was on there. Is this normal for between gear shifts of this vintage or is the chain not ideal or the cassette worn.
Anyway, I want to say how much I enjoy this forum and the crew that's on here
