    derailleur compatibility/colnago buildup (pics!)

    hey guys.. always a pleasure to spend time on this forum, thought i'd contribute!

    I'm building up a colnago that i've been holding on to for a while. I don't have a huge budget so i'm planning on mostly using campy chorus bits, but i'm open to using whatever i get a good deal on (..addicted to ebay). I have a front chorus derailleur, and am now looking for a rear. Would any campy rear work? or should i stick to chorus?


    oh.. and some pics, to prove it exists!

    the pics are from ebay long ago.. it's been polished up a bit more, although i still need to remove some surface rust where the paint is, and touch up.

    Is that a 60cm frame? Looks like it has potential! When you say Chorus, are you using newer Ergo, or older friction shifting?

    if you are using friction any rearderailuer will work. if you want to Ergo you need to be a bit more selective. your shifters and cassette/freewheel need to match and your rearderailluer need to compatible with that system. like everything ergo 8, or 8sp shift cassette and 9spd der. usually a derailuer can be used shifters but you can't use an older der with newer shifters

    i'll be sticking w/ friction, at least thats the plan for now. thanks for the assurance! It is 60+cm... to be honest i don't remember, i won it a few years back on ebay and like a week later i scored a masi gran criterium off of craigslist. So it's been sitting around just being pretty for a while. the paint is pretty shoddy, but i might try to just touch it up the best i can and ride it for a while instead of a full repaint.

    For friction, I would hunt down some nice Nuovo Record stuff. Good luck!
