    Yeah...but...I ignored you and now it's sporting Campy Centaur alloy 10s Ergos, FD, RD, and brakes. I was able to keep the cranks by machining the inner ring 1mm, though.

    It is currently wearing the newest wheelset...silver A23s laced to Record 28H hubs (thanx BianchGirl)...although I am re-lacing the Gipiemmes next week (Superlight rear, Sapim Lasers all around).

    To keep this semi-on topic, I flatted on it's first voyage with 10s today and used a Topeak Micro Rocket AL MasterBlaster and was quite happy with it, for a small bag fitting pump.

    I was lucky to get an Acorn bag for my Le Champion recently. With the frame pump I only have one bottle holder so this is the perfect size for a second bottle and a jacket and misc. items.

    ^^^I love the medium Acorn saddle bags, I have them on (3) of my rigs.

    I also recently bought a couple Arundel Tubis, and these are really nice little bags as well...tube/levers/tool type bags, with a little extra pocket(s) for cash/whatever.

    Nice bike and a really great looking saddle bag, . I have a Jandd tire bag as well: http://www.jandd.com/detail.asp?PRODUCT_ID=FTBII. It looks cool and comes in black. Also Jandd gear is pretty much indestructible. I've used their gear for backpacking and bike touring and it holds up really, really well.

    I only carry a tire under the seat. A multi-tool, phone, ID, cash, CC and CO2 are in a jersey pocket and I'm good.

    Old school - tire wrapped in a page of La Gazzetta dello Sport (the pink is quite faded) wrapped with a toe strap.







    Not as old school - Vittoria rubber straps








    New school - Cinelli bag - something I am seriously considering making repops, its a nice bag

    Arundel makes a few nice, minimalist saddle bags. The tiny Solo, the S/M Dual, or the Tubi for sew-up tires. I have a Dual and it's actually just a hair big for my liking (I carry one tube, tire levers, 2x CO2 cartridges, a tire lever, a small patch kit, and a little multi-tool) as it's designed to carry two tubes and your stuff. I stuffed a small rag in mine to take up the extra volume. The bag looks appropriate on modern bikes and C&V bike IMO and best of all, there's no seatpost strap to destroy your bibs (if you wear them). There's also a leather patch on the bag to prevent your post from wearing a hole in the material. I'll have to take a pic of my Trek 730 with mine on but in the meantime, here's a link to the Arundel site - http://www.arundelbike.com/dual.html?p=1.1.2.1
