I noticed you decided to mix shimano & campagnolo... is that because you don't like the shimano shifters or because you don't like the campy drivetrain? :?


I liked the Campa shifters more. That's why I chose for these shifters. I already had the Dura Ace derailleurs and for this moment I don't have any plans to switch to Campa Record.

Hey good idea ! I'll try that ? Who need brakes as there are shoes that you can use as brakes. :P

Finished bike (for the moment that is). And yes I know that the chain is too short thanks to the LBS :? . Weight is 6.34 kg.

That is VERY nice. Have you thought about color matching with some other orange parts? Might actually be cool as long as not full out (as in orange bartape/tires/seat).

YEah I was thinking about that too. But I guess it would be over the top.. I like it when the rest of the bike is just plain black.

Great build , like it very much because much of the time the Pinarello stay stock with only campy , but you didn't get shy en push the build , at the end you get a one of a kind bike , hope you will push it further :wink:

Looking good on the poll Light -bike 2009 , congrat and enjoy .

shifters are fine, but apparently he hasn't changed his chain in a year. Not sure why he even kept the first one if he said the LBS screwed it up...I wouldn't take a chain like 5 links too short...
