A Campagnolo Chorus triplized crankset I'd spotted on a local classifieds site. Used and sort of cobbled together, but friendly-priced. I like it, and it will end up on one of my touring bikes:

NOS Campagnolo Sigma Crono 28 hole tubular rims circa mid 80ís from CampOldy in UK.
Needed two pairs but price was very reasonable to take all he had, then considering what little additional shipping cost there was made it work.

I think I now have all the pieces to assemble my NOS 1982 Fuji Monterey frameset with the acqusition of this Fujita Belt saddle that came today. I was going to use a NOS Avocet Touring 1 until I spotted this on Ebay.

Some smaller footprint pedals-these will also get a set of half clips. Another I may try is the Promenade Ezy.

I'm thinking they may go on a Le Tour, circa '83, slated for some rehab period roller use, perhaps.


later today, I received the half clips

I needed another crank puller, the threading was at its end. I knew I had another, a Shimano, but I could not find it, grrrr.
On Marktplaats came a Dura Ace for sale, from a well known seller, ogether with some other nice stuff for a fair price.
So ...



New in (one weary, due to storage) box.





I was very glad.
Half an hour later I found the other crank puller.
I keep this one in the weary box.

They are pretty rare. I thought I struck gold when I found the calipers at a coop in VA

Perhaps the most elegant calipers Iíve seen.

Some pieces came and with stealing parts from another bike I could go for a spin. Still waiting on a seat+seatpost, headset, tape etc. The bike is kinda in the purgatory era for C&V but I like it anyway.

Lyotard M23 Marcel Berthet pedals




Only just discovered these, I normally use Lyotard 45CA quill pedals.

But I figure if Holdsworth advertised "Chrome plated continental racing pattern" pedals in 1961 they probably meant these.
And they do seem to get a lot of good comments.

I rode those for a few years until they blew apart at the joints between the body and the platform. Very comfortable but for me hard to find. Smiles, MH

Seem to be quite a few around atm on Ebay
  • Lyotard M23 (UK only): 11 starting at £18
  • Lyotard 45ca (UK only): 2 starting at £39

A plus is 45CA and M23 share the same axle fittings.

At least you have the source document and not a translation that doesn't reflect the source closely at all. (Note: I know translation is a difficult to learn art. That doesn't prevent my laughing at some of the things they come up with.)

Oooooh, Mavic MA2 + Campy Nuovo Tipo large flange (1253) + 36 stainless DB spokes for £52.90
Hub feels very smooth but haven't inspected the cones yet ....
... Update: cones are perfect



The MA2 is going into storage, being replaced with Mavic Monthlery Pro tubular.
The hub is almost a match for my Sunshine rear hub:
