1994-ish Pinarello Gavia with 10 speed Veloce/Chorus

1994-ish Pinarello Gavia with 10 speed Veloce/Chorus.

The Pinarello Gavia is the prettiest bike I’ve owned, with chrome stays & fork and a ton of Panto. I carefully removed the few faulty paper decals and wet sanded the paint. I installed a few new decals as needed. The frame looks new with no scratches, dents or corrosion.

It’s also is a first class performer and was considered top-of-the-range from Pinarello at the time. The tubing is TSX and the bike was built with an 8-speed cassette & Ergo Levers in mind. The rear drop-out is 130mm from the factory. Pinarello was the last brand to win the Tour de France with a steel frame and Big Mig. If you think that all steel bikes should have down-tube shifters, please stop reading now; this bike is not for you.

“near new” means the parts were new prior to the build. The bike has 400 miles since the build in 2015.
  • 61.5 cm seat tube (center-to-top), 58cm top tube (center-to-center)
Miche hubs (new) laced to new HN Son polished alloy clincher rims, 23mm wide
  • Vittoria Rubino Pro 25mm clincher Red sidewall
  • Campagnolo Chorus brake calipers
  • Campagnolo 10-speed Veloce Ergo shifters, near new
  • Campagnolo 10-speed Veloce derailleurs , near new
  • Campagnolo 13-29 10 speed cassette, near new
  • Thomson polished alloy seatpost, near new
  • White leather San Marco Rolls saddle, near new
  • Campagnolo Record headset & bottom bracket, near new
  • 3TTT 110mm Panto Pinarello stem

When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
