Received the 421 NR ring for the Bianchi. Waiting for the 52 now.
In process of expanding range on FW. 14-22 isn't wide enough for 54/46 rings.

These arrived today - even better than described in the Ebay auction:



Campy Centaur Skeleton brake calipers; I've always loved the look of these (gee, I wonder why?), and have had my eye out for a Record pair, but they always seem to be priced more than I care to pay. These were less than $70, shipped, so I jumped. They will replace the current Campy Veloce Monoplaners on the Davidson. Manipulating them in-hand is a joy - I can hardly wait to try them out in anger, because I'm anticipating some fantastic braking power (they will be the first dual-pivot brakes I've used since the early 90s), as well as superb feedback and feel. I just hope they don't flex too much.

One of my favorite brakesets. Cool and effective!

Thanks for your perspective! Since you've experience with them: did you detect any flexion issues?

I had a knockoff set of "skeleton" brakes and even they were excellent stoppers. The campy ones ought to be terrific.

I did splurge for Record Titanium for the De Rosa. Rock solid. Best braking of any bike

I am probably going to do the patina thing for the Superleicht I got from @hazetguy and the Ciocc, probably.

You know, subject matter notwithstanding, sometimes I wish I was this nerdy! But then I think about how much worse this neurotic, socially awkward, card-carrying introvert's life would have been and remind myself what a godsend it is that I'm not!

Had a chance to go through each item and wow! They threw in a big freebie— I’d ordered a seat tube wrap decal for my ‘82 Trek 720, and they sent an extra one! Really kind of them. And it gives me more confidence in case I totally eff it up the first time..

More awesome goodies

'94 Flite Titanium, very close to NOS, shipped, for under 70 bux:









'78 Campy Record non-drive arm:





The Record arm came with a drive-side arm as well, but I only really needed the one pictured. Now I've got a complete spare set, and one spare drive-side arm as a result. I can live with having too many of a particular part much easier than not enough! Plus, one day, one of the drive arms might suffer a breakage, so the spare one means I'm ready for that possibility, too.
