Congratulations on a really nice bike. Good to see a bike built to do the job but which still looks better than most.

I love them. They are light, rather stiff and sturdy. Sadly I have had some problems with the rear hub. And it is still not in mint condition. The old White Industries hubs are preferable.
I am thinking of changing my rear hub to a WI this winter.

They are definitely worth the extra weight.

I bet an LTA could be built with a titanium axle weighing about the same as the DT 240 roads too.

Originally,I think DA cranks with Campy Record will have a very strange look.
But...... Mr.Mario, I like your bike! It looks beautiful!
What chain you use on your bike? How does it shift at front and rear?

Awesome bike.. I've got the same frame with the stock components (DA and ksyriums) which I use for long-distance riding. I like what you've done though. There's a reason this frame is used by proteams, great comfort but very stiff still. IMO better then a CR1 and at least you get a replaceable derailleur hanger!

Thanks.

I know at least 10 riders here who has Record grouppo with DA cranks.
I have used a SRAM PC 89 Hollowipn, DA10 and now a Campy 10sp chain. The latter two works perfect, the SRAM almost perfect.

The shifting is as good as with any of the two alone.
