I was off the bike for a while, personal and business wise. Back on now and consistent and MAN does it feel good. Decided to put a new bike together. I can't say how happy I am with it! The integrated press in BB with Ultra-Torque was something I am REALLY happy I got to work as the ride is superb. I'm sure someone else has done this, or not? Let me know.

All my WW parts hold up well sans my ultra light inner RD cage. Nasty descent and the chain jumped and ripped it off. High five to Campag, climbed back up and rode home like a dream! 13.68 as it sits.

I feel like you need the pink zipp logos to match those hoods, just enough pink to be classy.

I have a few friends at Zipp (Im not super cool they are just 50 miles north) so I should grab those :). Honestly I wanted to try the "Hudz" and could not do black, white was out of stock, and yellow blue, etc yuck. Pink worked in a weird way haha. I actually love the hoods, great flat platform on them, the finish is terrible at first but the dingles wear off first ride :).

How did you get the bottom bracket cup issue, with the Scott's press fit bottom bracket to work? Just curious, as I run Campy as well and was considering an addict.

Haha, the pink hoods :). Just called my buddy and the stickers are on the way! I pulled the Shimano bearings out of the cups, installed a wave washer on the non-drive side pressed the campag bearings in sans the c-clip (on the cranks) and voila! Took some playing but it worked! The trick is all externals use a 6805 bearing. For Shimano they use a slightly smaller spindle with a the plastic cap spacer to take up slack. Campag uses a slightly larger spindle and metal on metal contact.

Trick is to use the Campag bearings. Also a side note, the Shimano cups are setup SPECIFICALLY for Shimano so the spindle holes is almost exact on Shimano, so close that it wont slide over Campag spindle. Dremel and DONE.

How wide asre the bearings you took out?

6805 as a standard bearing is 7mm wide, but campy and new shimano external bearing BBs are 6mm wide.
