Last time I competed was on a Legnano bicycle, just after Campagnolo launched the first aluminum chainset. Now my favorite bicycle is a Moots 6/4. That said, my preference now is for a LIGHT frame with a relaxed geometry, preferably Ti. I hope I'm not a cockroach at a chicken dance in this board. In any case, thank you for having me here. I promise to keep a low profile. :o

Welcome to weight weenies! :welcome:


Where do you live? It's easier to make recommendations. Also what is the budget? My Lynskey R320 is 5.76 kg.

What year did Campagnolo launch the first aluminum chainset (or crank. as we Yanks would say)?

First, please note that when I registered, the darn auto-correct provided me with the name Jacqueline. Not that I'm in any way biased but I'm a male-type specimen of the species. For whatever that's worth.

That cleared, thank you for the kind and generous welcome.

And, no. I no longer own that lovely Legnano. I went to live away for some time, gave it to an old cycling friend who died and I lost track of his family. I might be mistaken, but I remember buying what I think was the first aluminum Record crank-set in the mid-sixties, maybe 1964.
