I'm almost done with my build, just the cables, 105 5800 groupset and chroming+repaint job. But I'm stuck on which stem to use.. Can you vote please? Both are 100mm in length. A. Mavic quill stem B. 3TTT Raid.

I just know my bike is going to weigh more with a modern Ultegra 6800 groupset compared to the 30 year old Campy Super Record group. Especially with clinchers instead of vintage tubulars!

Been working on my Dream bike build. Found a beautiful locally built Columbus frame but im torn between the price and performance of tricolor and the aesthetic of campy. Has anyone had any luck with Tricolor matched with campy integrated shifters? any speed setup is fine. I just hate the look of the massive shimano shifters and am too cheap to go full campy.

Campy 10 speed shifters pull the same amount of cable as Shimano 8 speed. So Campy 10 Ergos plus 8 speed tricolor, and you're on your way.

I just made a small change. Another BF member is having some influence, so I'm under it. Also "thread-eligible."
Also, I wanted to use the DT shifters on another bike, as it takes shape in me head. 5700 for $70 on local CL.

Hi cOlnago, thinking about doing the same for my Look frame. The only thing that is bothering me is the bottom bracket situation. What type are you using, one with a square taper or cups?

That is a great deal, I snagged 5600 brifters and derailleurs for $90 some months back...

Good to go for another generation.

+1 on that's a beauty. Welcome to the forum, CoV



Pure bike for conversation, too. Hard to ride by that one and not ask a few questions. Great thing to do.

The Shimano 5800 works so well and is so cheap as a complete group that it's pretty much a no-brainer IMO, but it is your dream after all, not mine...

Looks like you're a little taller than dad was.

I decided to forego the Ergo, added STI; it's a modern upgrade, so this is the thread. I wasn't riding it with 2x10 Campy, and didn't ride it at all with 2x7 Suntour GPX, so this build is intended to be ridden more often. 6600 shifters, 5700 FD/RD/calipers, Cinelli steering, Fulcrum 7 hoops, Suntour GPX crankset w/Stronglight 9/10 rings. This is the ride setup, and it's not light, but it's what I ride. I'll keep up.









My able assistant.

That is a seriously nice looking ride. Great use of a lot of red and tastefully so. Those Fulcrum rims seal the deal.

And ask your able bodied assistant what the preferred spoke tension is on a Rigida AL 1320 drive side rear!

Thank you. I'm bit taller than my late father and the inspiration to rebuild an old frame with new components came from this site and this thread. It was in a rough state before:

Gratitude for the kind words.

I asked him, and I think he gave me an answer.
I don't understand Yippish very well, but it did involve bacon.

Great restoration. How did address the issues with the chrome?
