This Serotta Nova Special X went from a 3x8 Shimano drivetrain on this bike for 10 years, but I made a few component changes to convert it to 2x10.

​A few pictures of my Pinarello Gavia. The bike now has new replacement decals and a 2x10 Campagnolo drivetrain.

Wow, you own three of the vintage thoroughbreds I've always lusted for, and even more amazing is that they're in my size.

Wonderful collection!
