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

Here are some close-up pictures :

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...

If you are interested in a Weight Weenies kit I no longer know what you should do.
