I was able to find a PR82 in excellent shape in my size - 58 traditional.
Build will be Record with black on black Deda Superleggera stem and seatpost. Bars are Fizik Cyranno 00 Bull. Ultimately it must have Bora’s, but I will run my Mavic Ksyrium Pro Carbons until I decide on exactly which Bora’s I want.
However, before I proceed with the build I have a problem. The graphics on the Superleggero seatpost extend down approximately 14 cm from the rails. Unfortunately, given my saddle height I will only have 13 cm of post showing!!! The worst of it is on the drive side where the bright red “Superlegerro” will lose the last r and o behind the seatpost clamp. Non-drive side is less obvious with a bit of the black D in Deda obscured. Currently using a very low profile saddle so no way to gain post there.
Although my perspective for the whole build is very much in the do it right from an aesthetic point of view, I have made peace with the fact that my bars do not match my stem and seatpost, and that they are not classic bend. Perhaps I am not that picky afterall, although these things can be a slippery slope. I'm afraid that before you know it, I'll have Bontrager aero bars on the damn thing. For now, I am very reluctant to give up on the Superleggero stuff because it is beautiful, very light, and most importantly, appropriate for a Colnago, (not to mention the $$ already spent).
My options seem to be:
1. Ride it with some graphics obscured.
2. Completely replace cockpit/seat post with something else.
3. Remove graphic from post.
4. Junk the whole thing and buy a $200 beater from Walmart and ride it with work boots, cutoff jeans, and no shirt.
Regarding removing graphics, there is a thread viewtopic.php?f=3&t=137146
that indicates that the painted on logos on the Superlegerro seatpost are not particularly durable and can be removed with goof off. Can anyone confirm this? An ideal outcome would be to remove the red "Serperlegerro" and leave the black Deda.
What does the collective wisdom of WW's advise?
When we ride disc brakes the whole deal of braking is just like a leaving a fart. It happens and then it's over. Nothing planned and nothing to get nervous for.
