    Conveniently the box now looks like it has the perfect form factor for a nice dog bed!

    Not really middle of winter boots, but planning a spring trip up a glacier.

    Finally, a proper seatpost for the Peg Marcelo. Bye-bye shim.

    Has anyone tried The Black Bibs? Ordered a pair and they arrived Friday. Look quite nice for the price, chose the plus version. The xl were too small. Returned for xxl.

    I'll post a review once I get a chance to ride in them.

    Brand new Colnago Master, Giuseppe Saronni color scheme, can you remember Del Tongo Colnago team? I put a 11 speed Campy Chorus group and a set of campy neutron wheels. all the parts and frame through Excel Sports Boulder. I saw Mr. Saronni in 1986

    That's pretty proper looking. Amazing that bike is still available new after all these years.

    Perhaps consider though using a 1" threadless stem, like this Nitto stem from Sim Works, so you can use 1" spacers beneath and prevent the turtleneck sweater effect visually. The model at the link will even let you keep your 31.8 bars. I know - bikes are tools, etc. - but thinner stem and spacers will match the tubeset look better.

    The Amazon delivery guy has been busy....





    I have no clue whether the rims on my road bike are tubeless compatible (having removed the labeling), so I'll set those Byways up with tubes for the time being. The Ergon grips are great. I can't believe it took me so long to find out about them.

    Next I need to order some walls and a ceiling!

    Don't. I can hear the damn thing calling me from the garage...

    It's supposed to be a commuter hack. I'm eyeing up changing the wheels (to these from Hunt) so that I can trust the wheels and run tubeless, which is at least a fairly sensible change... but I'm *desperately* trying not to change the Shimano 600 to a more modern silver group (old SRAM Rival would be an option, as would Campag Athena if I could find it).

    The garage at our new place (in Seaforth) is ridiculous. It's so built out with storage and workbenches that our car (a Volvo CX70) will only fit at an angle! That bump stop is a great bike stand (and currently utterly useless for car parking guidance), but it will be even better at preventing my wife from hitting the garage wall once I have sorted things out on that front...!

    Whereabouts in Seaforth? Idle curiosity....we used to live there when i was a kid.

    Anyway, if itís a commuter and you normally get the ferry, you can spend more than $3k a year and still be in front:). Or you could just save the money like normal people.

    Now...those wheels. Alloy nipples might be the right decision for an aluminium wheelset where weight matters...but for a commuting wheelset living here they are the wrong choice. Ask me how I know.

    I own one set of wheels with alloy nipples and they will never cross the threshold of this household again. I can send you a piccy if you like but just imagine the Wound Up fork as a spoke nipple. Brass spoke nipples are your commuting friend.

    Also, if itís any use i have an old alloy square taper Campag chainset if you want it. It was too nice to put in the bin.

    Peacock St. Moved here in late Oct.

    Hmmm, good point on those nipples. Might be time to try and source my old Mavic Reflex Ceramic tubular / WI T11 wheels back and run some sturdy tubs with sealant in them...

    Cranks are tempting - which model? It appears that the frame runs a press-fit bearing setup of some kind, so I might be stuck with the original Shimano 600 chainset, or at least the square taper axle that is in there.

    I chose the stem as it was a Fizik which matches the seat, seat post, bar, and stem. I think you are incorrect however, it is only a "mock" turtle neck" :):) Thanks for your comments. BTW the frame was just made in Italy by Colnago as a custom build . I ordered it in December and got it just a week ago. They are still available new and the Saronni paint scheme was not an up charge.

    Cool. I think Tommasini still does customs as well. I remember a bike tour company back in the 80's that would send your measurements ahead so when you arrived there was a brand new Guerciotti (I think that was the brand) waiting for you. Then you rode it for a week and took it back home with you at the end of the trip. Probably avoided customs that way I am guessing, but always sounded to me like a great way to buy a new bike!
