    That's 2 for SR. I don't have much Campy experience yet, so looking for thoughts. I had a Gitane with Triomphe and am looking for a race bike that I may go with Record 10 on. I wish the guy was still there in Leschi (Seattle) so I could see each group in person.

    I say 7900 because it isn't what the purists would do.

    been a long while, but i think if you try you can still track down george, even though the storefront is gone. check out his website and call to see what he's got sitting around

    I can't edit my last my post so just ignore it. Campagnolo definitely makes sense on these bikes. If you go 11 speed though I wouldn't say that SR is needed. You would probably have just as much fun on Athena or Chorus with enough money left over for that fancy six pack that you've been eyeing.

    I think my last post was confusing. I want to stay with an "appropriate" old group on the Colnago Super. I am also looking for a new race bike that I would like to use Campy on as well. There is a nice DeRosa Team on the Serotta site that I have pm'd about. I would like to use a newer group on it. I need something a little more affordable than SR 11. I may in fact pull my Dura Ace off my Serotta CX bike until I round up new components for it.

    Chorus.

    Where you buy also makes a huge difference when it comes to Campag, but I'm sure you know the usual addresses if you hang out at the Serotta forum.

    I will most likely buy used components, especially since the frame is used. I'll check out the Chorus since two of you recomended it. Thanks.

    On another note, I just recieved the Super frame. It is spectacular! It has a few blemishes- but I love it. I want to hang it above my work bench and stare at it until I get it built.

    I'll put up the pix tomorrow.

    I have been looking online- I think I will build it up with Super Record.

    I didn't have time to take pix today. Here are a couple of quick ones though.




    And so it begins- I found these never installed SR levers on CL today. I got them for $100



    I am sure there will be problems with these pix, I haven't figured out how to make them work correctly.

    Hi, I'm 100% fresh to V.S. Interesting threads, great rainy day reading..........

    This C50 Strada is my own 40th Birthday present to myself. Since my boyhood, around 9/10 years of age I've ever since lusted after an Italian bicycle, when I turned 40 simply thought I was overdue.

    Settled on a C50 for comfort and semi-classic looks over anything else. Size 52 sloping C50 with those curious diamond HP chain stays in the AM00 paint scheme plus a bit of over the top blingery from me. I purchased the frame as discontinued NOS in Oct 2011 and fitted it out with my pre-existing and virtually new 2011 Record 11 sp. gruppo. Also shouted myself a new wheelset (NOS 2009 Eurus 2 way fit) to keep the Italian theme as pure as practicable. The Oval Concepts bars and stem are also from an old ride, love these, great for my battered hands which need a regular resting place whilst on the roll....

    What can I say, I love my bike, it is a sprited ride yet comfortable and provides road feedback well before getting into rubber side up territory - perfect for my purposes. I truly enjoyed the bulid up process, every 'gear head' should build a bike from scratch at least once in their life.......

    Just finished a 2.5 hour ride on my C50. It is such a nice bike. My steel bikes are my favorite, but the C50 is the best all around carbon bike I have owned. Open Roader, enjoy the bike.

    The C50 is sweet as you I ride my steel bike a whole lot more and I should sell it but cannot convince myself to do so...

    Default i know colnago's C40 is soooo 2005, but it's still an iconic bike...so i updated mine

    i call it "Nuovo Retro" with some old school charm and new school elements, depending on your viewing angle. sorry about crappy fone cam pics in the kitchen, it was in the teens outside and i dint feel like doing proper pics outside.










    circa 2005 C40HP, the last and finest of the C40 lineage as it originally came from the factory:

    Frequently wrong, but NEVER in doubt!

    Looks like the stem was installed upside down.
