My DeRosa Primato

Beautiful, of course, none the worse for wear being shipped, but there are some immediate items to address (chips in paint, heavy pedals, horrid bar tape wrap job, Schwinn?!?! bottle cages, etc).

Be glad to when she gets her makeover.

I also got my 90's-vintage Silca pump. The plunger was a bit worn and held no pressure at first, but some grease at least let me pump up the DeRosa's tires. Ordering a new plunger (rubber, not leather?) and top cap.

Nice! Elegant sister to your Cannondale.

Francophile knows how to pack a frame, doesn't he?

Best packed frame I've ever seen. Could've been ran over by a truck and survived.

Sam's Club stopped carrying them, so I have to get them on line. Less than 12 cents apiece. Worth it.

French-threaded Lyotard Marcel Berthet M23 pedals. I've been wanting to try these out. They're going on my commuter/Eroica CA bike. Thanks again @jeirvine!

Velox cloth bar tape, I still haven't gotten the trick down to wrapping a handlebar with these. I always end up short by about a 1/4 of an inch.

Next time I'm just going to order 3 rolls.

@italianbiker, If length is an issue, the trick with Velox is to buy Newbaum's.

I've got one or two bars wrapped with Newbaum's. Unfortunately, it's pretty slippery. It's made worse for me because I generally ride without gloves. I think it would need shellac or something else to add a little tack to it.

Will be wrapping some TTT bars with newbaums so I find your comment interesting. Have used Velox for cotten wrap always.

How is it slippery? Right off the bat or as it gets miles to it? I don't use gloves either.
