    My new (to me) Medici Pro Strada

    Finally got time to finish and snap a few pictures. Sorry cell phone pictures.

    I bought this Medici about a month or so ago and just couldn't find a chance to break it down and put it all back together. Well, finally found some time and I'm in love. Rides like a dream and I'm happy with it. A little more "loud" compared to my Peugeot, but I figure it's nice to have something on the other side of the spectrum.

    The parts are a bit of a mishmash, but it's a bit too costly to switch components out at this time.

    Frame: Tange Prestige
    Headset: Campy SR
    Stem/Handlebars: Cinelli 1R and Giro 64
    Brakes: Campy SR brakes
    Shifters: Suntour Superbe
    FD: Campy SR
    RD: Campy C-Record
    Cranks: Campy C-Record
    Pedals: I believe Campy Victory aero pedals
    BB: Campy C-Record
    Saddle/Seatpost: Iscaselle saddle (Thanks Kurt) and Suntour Superbe seatpost
    Wheels/hubs: Mavic Open 4CD laced to Suntour Superbe

    Special thanks to all the C&V folks that helped me along the way of buying and putting this bike together.

    sweet! the medici graphics are really cool and you did a great job with coordinating the saddle/wrap.

    i should maybe point out those brake barrel adjusters are out sooooo far it almost looks dangerous.

    Yea I'm just barely before the breaking point. Might have to do some readjustment just to be safe

    Ok I'll just used this thread instead of creating a new one...

    I'm missing some mounting hardware for the Campy Victory aero pedals... Does anyone know how hard it is to find this stuff or would it be possible to source something that will fit from a hardware store?

    Also, I have a set of Campy Veloce brakes that I bought awhile back that I never ended up using. Do you think that would be better than the SR I have now? I'm not a stickler for period-correctness or any kind of correctness for that matter. Maybe selling or trading the SR brakes would help me re coup from the bike purchase(s) as well.
