Holy crap I miss US prices.

Record hubs with Open Pros sound like they'd be a great match for your riding. I'm running '07 Record hubs, 32-spoke 3X to DT Swiss RR1.1 rims. About 1000km on them so...

I'll put a vote in for the Chrome bag. I've been using a Chrome Metropolis for about 3 years - fantastic bag, and I'd never go back to a backpack. Never had any issues with it sliding around, and...

You can use a wipperman masterlink on it. I'm not sure about the wisdom of using your current link again on a new chain (if that's what you were asking). I'd expect the masterlink wears at a similar...

Looks really nice.

rousseau - the wear you're seeing sounds perfectly normal. My rear tyre starts showing a noticeable flattening in profile after about 1500 miles, but I normally get about 2500 miles before replacing...

Campy Xenon 10 speed (http://www.probikekit.com/display.php?code=l4048)

700x23 no problem. Just keep the pressure up to avoid pinch flats - I'm not far off your weight, and run at about 125psi rear / 115psi front.

I put a WCS Compact crank on in 2005. Very happy with it - stiffer than the 105 it replaced, and works well with the 105 drivetrain on that bike. All the other options at the time required a new...

Dunno what you're supposed to do, but I use 8 cogs either way. I can get 34:12 without rubbing, but try not to... 50:27 very noisy, and never used.

You won't lose much on the top end. At 120RPM on 700x23 tyres, 52:12 will take you 40.7MPH and 50:12 will take you 39.1MPH. I was cruising down a hill on the weekend at over 42MPH with 50:12.
