    If long life components are your goal, consider an SKF bottom bracket - guaranteed for 10 years or 60,000 miles.

    Its curious that you were considering the latest 11-speed count and mid-range STI,...

    Those are both very nice frames. Some points I notice:

    Bianchi has vertical rear dropouts (a favorite feature for me, FWIW), and seems to be lugged (always a plus around the C&V campfire), and it...

    If we were voting for "Coolest C&V Thread of the Year", this one would get my vote.

    The fork slots in my Marinoni were just a tiny bit too tight for the "axle" on my Thule fork clamp roof rack, probably due to excess chrome plating on the fork tips. I used a small diameter grinding...

    We had a few dry but cold days for bike commuting this month - surprising for November in the PNW. Then we had a "warm" day - upper 40's rather than 27-38F that it had been. Seemed like I was flying...

    I'd be very cautious about shortening the steerer tube. That can't be undone! Headset spacers work fine, and preserve the option for a taller headset and stem later.

    I'm curious about the...

    I often try to go faster, but the real goal is to always enjoy the ride. My wife, a very strong rider and my best riding partner for the last 18 years who also does lots of different non-cycling...

    Can't tell from that picture of your rear hub, but Exa-Drive would be my guess (check link below). 8-speed Campagnolo cassettes are getting harder to find, but I have a NOS 13-26 Exadrive 8-spd...

    A different Brooks (Team Pro, Swift or Swallow) might work better for your aggressive riding position. I'm loving my Gilles Berthoud Aravis (bars 3cm below the saddle) and there's a "Race" model for...

    WTB: Left (NDS) Shimano Crank Arm

    Looking for a NDS crank arm that matches this DS crank, a nice Shimano FC-6206, 170mm. FWIW, the DS is a 110/74, but obviously that doesn't matter for the NDS arm. The 6206 was the triple, and a 6207...

    My pics back on page 5 (deep red Marinoni, sage green Rambouiilet, wife's blue and snowflake Erickson) were from inventory, and those bikes are all daily riders, the Marinoni more by far for me...

    I've done a similar rim swap - Open 4CD replacing Campy Omega 19 - used the same DT butted spokes and the resulting wheel is doing fine 18 months later.

    Have you asked Light and Motion that question? They are known for great customer service, and would probably answer quickly. I wouldn't be surprised if they offered a battery replacement service with...

    I've been surprised that my similar frames can feel so different, but the question was about components, so getting the saddle (and its location, which adds seatposts into the discussion) right makes...

    I met Mary in the middle of the 1993 Seattle-To-Portland (STP) 2-day 200-mile ride, just outside of Centralia, WA., when my pick-up riding partner slowed a bit to chat with folks we were passing,...

    One of the great benefits of Campagnolo brifters is their rebuild-ability. My several 8-spd sets have only needed a few rebuilds in the almost 20 years that my wife and I have been using them. The...

    Here's a very similar thread, oddly in the Bicycle Mechanics forum. I've copied an older response from last spring comparing my Rambouillet and Marinoni in that thread, so won't do it again here.
