    Yeah,the really old AW with black-ish internals were good, the new stuff is brown-ish and is probably made out of pot metal that crumbles down too easy

    Yeah, that looks one of the ones still made in Italy.

    Btw, there's quite a bit of stack under that stem, of which I've never been a fan of (mind that faceplate)

    Time to replace them pads!

    As mentioned in another thread, I dislike silver brake tracks on anything but raw Ti. Solved by buying a raw Ti frame.

    Early 2000s Titanium Sports Technologies frame with a 1 1/8 HT grafted on by Dean. Amazing welds, apparently these guys were Sandvik's in-house framebuilders during this time. Dean's work is, as always, flawless, with the HT looking like the bike was born with it. Waiting on a Chorus 11 group tomorrow and we should be all set.

    Recabled my rear mech this weekend. The shifting got sticky on my last ride and I found the cable had frayed inside the shifter.

    Second time this has happened to me in the last five years and in this instance the cable has 6k kms on it. Aside from being less ham-handed with my shifting technique, any maintenance tips for getting more life out of Campagnolo 11s shift cables?

    MAke sure the outer casing it cut 90º and neat by the shifter end. Often the plastic outer and the inner liner shrink, leaving the steel strands exposed: they kill the inner wires

    My neighbors come to me for small bike repairs. Sometimes I get a raft of bikes at a time! Today I found 5 kids bikes leaned against the woodpile for their pre-season safety check. Let me tell you, they all get the NFS treatment ;)

    Honestly, I could do this all day everyday. Working on things is relaxing and knowing I'm making these bikes useful for folks sets my head straight.

    One of the best riding bikes ever, IMHO. I have a 61. Frame was painted bottle fly green and the plastic coins were replaced with Buffalo nickels. I'll ride it until it turns to powder.



    Today I am regluing tubular wheels. I glued them up a year ago (maybe two actually?) and rode them all that spring, then hung the wheels up and they dried out in the steam heat of our apartment. The rear tire pulled away a bit from the rim, so I decided to check my work. Rear came off easily (kind of scary) but the front was a wrestling match. I think I forgot the broom handle roll on the rear or maybe I just didn't have my technique down and glued a twist in the rear. Anyway, raining hard today, so I will brush off any crust and reglue while watching bike racing from the 1980's on YouTube. Something about spring that makes me want to ride tubulars again.

    I glued tubulars last night too. First time using the continental carbon specific glue. That stuff drys fast. I am curious to see how it holds.

    Holy cow, look at that thing! Looks like eTap is going to be a lifesaver for people with bikes like this.

    The main trouble is actually the brake cable. That goddamn thing gives a kink to the housing, and you can guess how much fun is to route the whole thing. Note that the base-bars have a wide section but are not sleeved inside, and all you have to get the cable out is that small hole (see the last picture).
    Doh!

    Taking apart is one thing, putting back together is even worse!

    Is one of those things that you have to do a few times to make it within a decent timeframe
