    Replaced the chain ring and issue went away.

    May not be cause if your issue but worth a look if not already ruled out
    That's a really good candidate, definitely worth checking - thanks for the idea.

    Lookit! I got it right-side up. I’m digging this bike. It’s a good bike. That’s about all I can say about it. It’s not some kind of ethereal, life-changing experience... It’s just a good bike.

    Nice!
    So refreshing to see a vintage bike with a proper setup of saddle and bars/levers. Bravo.

    p.s.

    Thanks- I appreciate the feedback. Sourcing everything took two years- many days and auctions on Ebay. The Delta covers we're engraved by Cycloretro in Australia- he does some amazing work.

    New to me C60... Found it from Italian eBay and made an offer that surprisingly was accepted. It's definitely buyer's market these days if you are looking for a couple years old "superbike" frame that fits no bigger than 25mm tires.

    Built it up with parts borrowed from my Festka. The frame was in good condition and the size 54s fits me maybe even better than my EP which is 59 traditional. It's definitely the best handling road bike I've had this far. Leaning it into corners feels so good that I just want to carve even on straight roads. It's also noticeably more comfortable than my EP, partly maybe because more exposed seatpost, but I think the front end is more comfortable too.

    Goodmorning all

    I have a Colnago Super in Sarroni from 1978 with modern accessories that i picked in NOS condition 8 years ago and I totally love. The decals do have a some "scars" from all these years but i don't really mind that. It's a sign of age and character.

    The problem is on the top tube where the paint has shown some signs of wear this last year. At one point there is a bubble on the paint and at the point where the gear cable touches the paint it has removed the paint and there is now some rust.

    Sent it to my trusty mechanic at the local bike shop for the yearly cleaning, anti-rust, lubing wheels and crankset ... dust removed ... but he suggested that maybe its time to consider for a repaint ...

    The bike mechanic suggested someone who sandblasts then uses airbrush and then takes it to the oven.

    Any pointers to what should I take in special consideration when i talk to him for more information. I am especially concerned with the Sarroni red as a colour and what determines the quality of the paint to avoid easy chips etc.

    Α silly question ... go decals route since that is the way it was original or paint them :)

    Anyhow would appreciate any pointers ... thank you

    Go decals.

    Greg Softley aka Cyclomondo in Australia makes a wide range of truly excellent, accurate uber quality restorative decals for vintage bicycles. I have used his decals for both outside the paint and under clear coat on Colnago steel and carbon lugged frames. His product is first class in every respect.

    If your Super has chromed lugs I'd look for a soda blast as sand can get chrome too hot and leave haze.

    If this were my own reno I'd have a double or triple coat of 2 pack clear high gloss automotive paint over the Saronni red and the decals. If you go to a panel beater / automotive spray painter they should be able to oven bake the paint and not ruin the decals in the process. My local panel beater guy has a cooler end in his panel oven which only reaches 46 deg C. Didn't shrink the decals on my C50 repaint.

    I was after the same frame and then it sold...

    Congrats.

    Huh. From its heft and "old-world construction" I'd thought of my EPS as a forever bike, should I decide to keep it that long... This definitely makes me reconsider. Pretty shoddy in that C50. (Doesn't mean they're all that way, I know. But they also don't all get halved and analyzed.)

    Maybe it was constructed on a Monday? .......... or a Friday? .....or after a public holiday long weekend ;-)

    However, on a more serious note one has to wonder why this frame has had a re-spray, clearly not an original colour scheme - looks like one of those Ali Express paint schemes..........
