Like I said you may find that you don't need it for your riding style. You can get classic-looking and actual vintage cranks with a 110-BCD and 110 wide-narrow rings are easy to find though you may...

I was talking today to one of the guys whose businesses are represented by those tables, and he wasn't even clear whether or not they intended those parts to be for sale. I always thought they were...

Pretty crazy. I've converted a couple pairs of modern dual-pivot calipers, and that was pretty easy. I thought for a second that it might not be too bad with Deltas, but then I went looking for an...

Me too! I got it all together last night, but I had to borrow the seat post from the Moto and pedals from my CX bike. I had a nice Campagnolo seat post for the Stella, but when I sent it off to be...

I'm also a sucker from chrome, and that blue really makes it pop. I've got a champagne Raleigh International and from 10 feet away you can hardly tell it has chrome lugs. I've been thinking about...

I think that's the first Galmozzi I've seen that wasn't 53cm or smaller. It's very nice.

I stopped in on Sunday, and it was already pretty picked over by then. I got an old Turbo saddle that was once white but is now well on its way to being black, and a Campagnolo Gran Turismo rear...

Have you seen Drillium Dude's naked Colnago? It might suit your definition. He's recently added a naked Casati, but I don't think that one is quite finished yet.

BTW, those chain stays are awesome!

I'd be curious to hear people's opinions about the cheaper tubular options. You can get clinchers like the GP 4000S II for half the price of a top quality tubular. Do $40 tubulars offer a better ride...

I thought only Italian used 70mm bottom brackets. That said, I have one bike with Italian threads and a 68mm wide shell, so as has been pointed out the design is flexible. Based on the OP's cup...

I wanted white hoods for a set of 1051 levers. I tried repairing the original hoods with silicone gel and PlastiDip spray. That didn't quite work for me (though I still think it's possible for...

My favorite wheels to look at are the Campagnolo Epsilon Strada Oxide rims laced to Nuovo Record hubs on my De Rosa. I like them mostly because the accent stripe on the rim perfectly matches the...

That one definitely looks bigger than the claimed 58cm/23" to me, at least in the picture. I'm a little surprised gugie hasn't bought it yet. I mean, if four Gran(d) Sport(s) are good, wouldn't five...
