    Yep, made in Taiwan! I was surprised too, they used to come packaged in purple boxes.

    Not really today, but this year! I'd been getting bogged down with new/unexpected projects and these FD's have yet to get installed as they should have this past spring/summer. Now I need to make room for the next group in line so a bike a week (I hope) will be completed excepting some wheelsets I need to acquire. What they are and what they are for: '60s-'70s Valentino, early '70s Chiementin (?, jury is still out); 1972 Nuovo Record, late '60s Ronchini; '73-'77 Nuovo Record, '70s Vetta; '73-'77 Nuovo Record, '60s Welter; '78-81 Nuovo Record, '60s Vicini (?, jury is still out); '78-'81 Nuovo Record (custom "bolt-on", no clamp or braze-on tab) '70s Berardi; '79-'87 Super Record, '80s Rossin; '79-'87 Super Record (braze-on), '80s Gion; '82-'85 Nuovo Record (braze-on), '80s Tommasini Prestige; '82-'85 Nuovo Record, '70s Marchesini; '82-'85 Nuovo Record, '80s Tommasini; '80-'85 980, '85 Batavus Criterium; Veloce, '90s Lemond Alpe d'Huez, '90s Mirage (?), early '80s Olmo; Record CT QS Ti/Carbon; early '90s Colnago Carbitubo; Record QS Ti/Carbon, 2011 Gios Compact Pro. Most rear mechs match the front.

    Note: Since photo was taken the Lemond (now 1200 miles away) and Batavus are completed; moving onward.

    I am getting "therapy"! My problem is math; this year I gifted 3 bikes and sold 1; but acquired 7 more, 2 were donated. Trying to give away more than I get. At least I do ride them; put miles on 9 different bikes this year; racing, touring, sport, mountain, 3 speeds.
    I'll post the rear mechs when I gather all of them from the various stashes of parts.

    Happy "Cranksgiving"!!!

    Tyres and cassette are way too big for that frame.

    WR Compositi seatpost for the Z1. Ordered weeks ago (special order only; and only available from Europe) and finally arrived today - couldn’t have asked for a better match if I tried:

    Indeed - no complaints here.

    Picked up this fork today:



    It's a Falz v2 which arrived a couple of weeks ago from Dazza in a raw finish, then I had it clear coated by a guy in Sydney. All notably cheaper than buying a new Enve fork in a finish that didn't match the frame at all; and also cheaper than buying a stock finished Falz v2 from BiKyle and getting it shipped here, oddly.

    Looks great on the bike, plus I now have the confidence of knowing the integrity, provenance and age of the fork on the bike; AND it's also cut to the full internal depth of the stem (plus a tiny bit extra).

    Parleretti?...

    In a world of straight forks this is so refreshing...worst thing imo ever from Colnago was the straight fork.

    A couple of near misses on Friday that required evasive action. One was a fwit who shouldn’t be driving, but one was a driver who just didn’t see me. Even though I was right in front of him.

    Re-informed my quest for more visibility. Later that day, these arrived:

    I was made aware of them by Cycling Tips. Installed them today. Really bright under lights. Unless you are an aesthetic princess there doesn’t seem to be a downside. Just ordered more for the rest of the family’s bikes.
