Campy Centaur

In case you missed it, the latest issue of Cycling Plus has a long review of the Centaur, very favorable.

Here are my two 'old' frames with Ergopower.
My daily ride, a 1983 Gazelle chamion Mondial, which I bought NOS last year.



And my Duell with the very first Ergopower, I bought it in 1992 and most of the parts are still original.

Super nice! I worked on a n Razesa for a woman in spain who had one for 25 years and wore it out.
She was really happy with the bike now that is was rebuilt.

The front is a Suntour derailer controlled with an older DA friction shifter pushing the chain up and down on a Campy GS crank. It all works great together. Shifting is WAY snappier than the old 6-speed corncob, and as an added bonus I've got a much wider gear range without loosing much in terms of close ratio spacing.

I guess you could say I fall into the hot rod it category. THis is one of the nicest frames of any age I've ever ridden, and modern gears and brakes make it better than new.

My wifes Vitus with campy veloce 10 speed. It was a N.O.S. frame from the late 80's.
It still had the tag on it!

And one final time - since this is really where it belongs.

Stealth 1984 Trek 760 that built up ridiculously light. Mirage 9-speed shifters, hubs and cassette. Nashbar compact crankset, Chorus derailleurs, Dr. Deltron paintjob.

How light is ridiculously light?

Slash, what saddle is that? I like the yellow.

AHHHH I can't wait to post my trek on here. I'm just waiting to buy a crankset and then I'll have all the parts for my builddddd...

Beautiful bike, I just love the simplicity that it offers.

Quick question, can you use vintage bars for ergo cables or do they not work since they don't have the notch for the cables? I think one of my bars had some kind of indent for the cables to be run through.

PS. Is your left brake quick release released?

Gitane, don't know the model. 501 frame and fork. Nothing really special, but it is a perfect fit and I love the ride.
Very nice !!! Well, I also have a blue Gitane, still original but the saddle and handlebar tape. Mine is a 73 with 531 tubing. While I would like to "modernize" the drivetrain, I didn't because the frame is a little big for me (60 cm). So I intend to sell it next spring.

Nice. Very, very nice. Where'd you finally go to select your saddle, and what did you choose?

Selle Italia C2 Gel Saddle - eBay - $15.51 + shipping. Took some time to find the right one at a price I felt like paying. The one I got from you will find it's way onto a bike this year.

USAZorro: Thats very nicely done, great looking trek! Think your chain is too long though!

Here is my STI Job, just gotta put the chain on it really.





'91 frame with all new parts on it, except for the brake calipers which are from 1988, shimano exage sport.. they are the lightest calipers I have, so thats why im using em! They don't have quick release which is kinda sad, but maybe thats why they are so light!

I think you should have just gone campy, the QR wouldn't have been a problem then...

Awesome bike though!

Nah, he's using the derailleur/chain to hold the bike up on the pedal, which has put a little slack into the top run of the chain.

His rear derailleur cable housing from the lever is, however, about right for a 64 cm frame.

1982 (or thereabouts) Ron Cooper, Campy 10-sp Ergo. (Bigbossman turned me to the Dark Side.) And to complete the heresy, it has Shimano Ulltegra brakes.

Sweet ride!

What bars are those? They look like shallow drop bars and I might want a set for my race bike since I think they fit me better!

Just let us know how it rides once you get the chance to get out on it!
I'm so bummed about my trek being down and out for a couple of weeks
