    All excellent advice, thanks so much! Will get hubs first and begin rebuild that way. Appreciate everyones input.

    421279421280421281Does anyone know if it's possible to refasten a snapped off rear plate on a Campy Croce D'Aune pedal?

    What's this sticky stuff on my pedals?

    Hi,
    I'm going to rebuild my Campy pedals and took the cap off to find this weird sticky yellow gunk on the nut. What is it?
    Any tips on a good pedal rebuild?

    Ended up finding a perfect Kinfolk fork - one of the last to be make by Kasuka, which has given the bike perfect geometry. It's sick. I'll sell the Colnago fork on ebay.
