Well I start off with one that's going to be in the garage but since I only finished it this morning it's still got to get home.

Pinarello stelvio.

I bought this frame in May I think. The paint was good as is the chrome but sadly the decals had that Pinarello disease. So off to the painters it went.
The chrome has not been touched.

The bike is a 58cm with a 58cm top tube.

Build spec
Campagnolo Record 11 speed drive train with chorus shifters. A chorus 12-29t cassette is fitted. As the groupset is second hand the rings are 50/34t which is not my preference. I might go 1x on it. I have a 46t chainring from garbaruk for 5 bolt 135mm bcd. Maybe I'll get used to the lower gearing. I probably will. the single ring will be kept for something else.

Pedals are my favourite, Campagnolo Record Titanium.

Headset is a Campagnolo Record 1" threaded.

A Cinelli grammo 120mm quill stem is fitted. I actually could not use a Nitto Quill with these bars. The Grammo quill steem clamp can be opened more being Ti to get round the tight bend without marking the bar too badly. If I used a nitto quill the bars would have been marked or dmaged or I would have dmaged the stem trying to get them to fit which would have meant a quill stem adpater and a Nitto A head stem. This bike needs a quill stem and the Deda Murex is only other quill stem I could have used. But since I have a spare Grammo why not use it.
Bars are Nitto M106 NAS 42cm. the shape of these is perfect.

Seatpost is a Nitto S83. The saddle is something I had kicking around. I think it should be changed. I live with it for the time being as I have spent too much as it is lately.

Bar tape is Cinelli Volee.

The wheels I have had a while. HED C2 Belgium tubular rims laced to Campagnolo Record hubs 28H with Sapim Cx-rays spokes. Continental Competition 25mm tyres are glued on. I built this bike because the wheels were sitting about unused.

Bottle cage are from Nitto.

Total weight is 8.83kg but this is a 2kg steel frame, steel fork with parts picked not for being light.

The QR's will be changed. I think this bike needs a set of original Campagnolo Record quick releases or Royce Talent. I have a new set of silver Chorus QR's but these don't look fitting somehow.

I am looking forward to the first proper ride on it.

Nice Neo-Retro! I love older frames with more modern gear...built to be used!

Early to mid eighties Carlton Kermese. Built with Renoylds 501 tubing. It's no weenie.

A customer dropped it off for restoration. I did the job but he has vanished that was two years ago. Do as its my size ill keep it. 58cm again.

The brakes and levers are weinman, nothing special there except they have been polished.

Headset is a Tange Seiki Levin for 27.0mm crown race.

The chainset, shifters and mechs are shimano 105 golden arrow. Polished of course. The bb is the original cup and cone effort. Pedals are Olympic XXI


The wheels that were in the bike were pony. Old mailard hubs that did not turn and a rim that had split at the join. As I had a pair of nos campagnolo tubular rims strada and chromo I figured I'd use those. Another good customer clearing out his loft before moving gave me a set of tubular wheels with campagnolo hubs. As one of the rims was split the other was a Mavic monthlery Pro fir which I had nothing matching I built the set you see here. 32 spoke front and 36 spoke rear. The hubs after a full cup and cone change are perfect. The shells did require polishing. You can tell the polishing I did and the polishing done by wyatts polishing in Thetford. They also chromed the forks and bb lock ring.

Dugast Paris roubaix 27mm tyres finish it off.

The freewheel came if those gifted wheels. A 6 speed 13-18t. I think next year I'll do Paris roubaix on it.

Weight who cares. I don't.

Alan competizone 1980/81. This is a glued and screwed frame. I have had this 6 years.

It was a racing bike once. Weight is approx 10kg.
Super champion Arc d'ciel tubular rims 32h laced to Campagnolo Record hubs. 22 mm conti gator skin tubs are glued on. It needs nicer tubs. In fact I have a set of nos Wolber 22mm tubs in great condition. I should stick those on.

Campagnolo brake levers are used. Not sure which ones perhaps c record. Either way I lack hoods for them. The brakes are Shimano 105 single pivot. These are poor. How people raced and stopped back then is beyond me. The bars are 3ttt and so is the stem. The bars are not comfortable though. The tops is good, the drops are fine. Hands on the hoods is not great and it's not the lack of hoods that's the problem.

The drivetrain is roper old school. 177.5mm Campagnolo Strada cranks possibly super record. Chainrings are 52:44t. The front derailleur is super record. The rear derailleur is triomphe. The shifters are of course campagnolo. The rear shifting is shall we say period and requires practice. The front shifting is odd. In 52t: 14t or 13t you can't downshift into the 44t ring without chain being caught in between the rings. You have be mid or upper freewheel first before downshifting the front.

The freewheel is a suntour 13 to 18t micro 6 speed. Now this the freewheel all the cadance control advocates should use.

The headset and BB are period campagnolo.

The pedals are look pp76 which made an appearance in 1984 but went on sale in 1985 I think. The saddle is a seller Italia turbo.

It is of course wonderful to ride. All it flaws simply add character. On a modern bike they would simply be flaws. Yes it could be cleaner but the aluminium tubing is pitted and scratched in places making a good clean difficult.
