What road bike do you have?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

It was a project I honestly never saw myself getting into, having gotten into cycling when carbon ciber, and STI/Ergo Index shifting was the norm. However, as I researched more and more of Campy, I came across their history, previous parts and grouppo's, and instantly fell in love with their C-Record group. It's just beautiful stuff; high flange hubs, enclosed rear derailleur pulley housing, and of course, those Delta brakes! I just had to make it mine! For the build up, and most surprisingly, nearly everything is new, preserved by collectors, lost in the hidden nooks in shops only to be uncovered now, allowing me to ride and break in this bike just as fellow cyclist would have done more than 20 years ago! A nice break in ride is scheduled for tom, we'll see how she fairs!








Ohhhhh, this Ciocc is like cake. I want to eat it. And I want to ride it.

Nice, but instead of the white bar tape I would have gone with the red and black splash. Just my 2 cents.
