    Ready to rock

    Upgrades complete (mostly?).
    Started with a well abused '05 Bianchi Cross Veloce
    Dumped junk OEM parts (after nearly killing them) and replaced with:

    Thomson Elite stem and post
    Paul Touring brakes
    Ritchey bars
    Campy Veloce UT cranks (34/50)
    And newly re-cabled and chained.

    The huge, and I mean huge difference is the crankset. The no-name ISIS BB w/ FSA Gossamer crank shifted like crap and creaked so loud through the enormous Scandium tubes people would hear me coming from a block away (no kidding, they'd turn around and look on a local hill). The Campy cranks are like night and day. And man is it smooooooooooth. Now about the wheels...

    Not this year. So many needs, so few resources.
