Couldn't match a fattie on an alloy nugget up powderworks haha.
Must have been the water bottle.
You’re a special kind of fattie Aaron- notice the word “plenty” and not “all”. Good luck for the race tomorrow.

This is my '81 PX10. With 531 and Corsas the ride is wonderful. I built this one up with Spidel components, many of which are NOS. ImageImageImageImage

Beautiful bike. Very well done.
I ride a 1998 Bianchi Campione with Campy Mirage, But hoping to uprade to a new Cervelo R3 soon. Seeing this bike makes me rethink not building it instead. :beerchug:

What are you guys using for threadless 1" forks if converting from threaded?

I kept the original threaded fork but converted it to threadless with a special headset: https://weightweenies.starbike.com/foru ... 5#p1398950

Wow, that looks good. Thinking on updating my steel frame to commute to work in nice weather. And buying a newer Cervelo for weekends or non-commuting rides.

Thank you.

Smashes plenty of fatties on aero bikes Image
This bike changed my mind about getting rid of my Bianchi.

I need to do a little research since I haven't yet looked into updating everything. My main thing is fork sizes, so I can put a newer carbon threadless fork on it. I plan to upgrade from my Campy Mirage groupset to Campy Record groupset. Although I could get Chorus if the savings are worth not getting Record.

Any insight, or info would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks.

If you have a 1” threaded steerer save yourself the money. 1” carbon steerers are pointless and forks with alloy steerers are only slightly lighter and generally give a poorer quality ride than steel.

I personally like the look of a fatter threadless fork/stem over the older style quill stem. I understand the cost vs benefit, but as long as its not detrimental I don't mind the cost to achieve the updated look. I also don't mind keeping the old fork if I can update the stem at least.

That’s not quite what I meant.

1” forks in carbon ain’t that nice to ride. The steerer diameter is designed with traditional construction methods and just substituting carbon isn’t going to yield the necessary strength without either being a boat anchor or very pricey. The only half decent 1” carbon steerer fork currently available is Columbus’s Minimal and that costs £215.
