Colnago Decor with Campagnolo Record
Colnago_Campagnolo-COVER

I swear, when I’m in Melbourne, it’s like classic steel roadie overload. Normally, I’m content with my modern steel but after a day at Shifter Bikes, I’m ready to start piecing together an Italian race machine. Dan has so many amazing builds coming out of his shop at the moment, but my favorite is this Colnago Decor with Campagnolo Record. Why? See for yourself in the Gallery!

I Thought This Was Nice

I’ve been spending time with Lauren, walking around Melbourne these past two days and on our way to dinner last night, I saw these logos on an old storefront glass. They were hand-drawn on the backside as well. I’m guessing it was an old bike shop?

Until I start photographing bikes and shops, I’ll be uploading the non-cycling side of this trip to my Flickr, so follow along there!

Dawn Painter Knows Campagnolo
campagnolo set1 smaller

… at least as far as I’m concerned. If you’re like me, then you’ve probably seen the work from the UK artist before. After a reader forwarded me Dawn Painter’s portfolio site, I spent a good amount of time poking around at the various illustrations. Naturally, the Campy jersey and bidon were my favorite but there’s too much good stuff in there to not share.

Do yourself a favor and check out Dawn Painter’s site!

Merckx Mondays

Let me first say that I have no idea where I found this image but I can’t let Merckx Mondays just fizzle out. Tracko‘s actually doing a pretty great job with it and once Andy gets his act together and starts posting again, I’m sure the three of us will be able to nail down Merckx content. For now, I just wanted to share this incredible Campagnolo ad…

The Dodelta
Dodelta_02

The Campagnolo C-Record Delta brake is one of the most beautiful components to ever grace the history of cycling. While some wrenches claim they’re shit, other, more pedigreed mechanics love their unique center pull braking mechanism. Which brings me to the Dodelta. Commentary on the brake, or the user? You decide…

10th Anniversary Fat Chance MTB by Kyle Kelley
Guest Gallery: Campagnolo Record OR 10th Anniversary Fat Chance MTB by Kyle Kelley

I’m one lucky guy. Since Tracko has “sworn off” posting anything but track bikes, I get all the radness that rolls through the doors at Golden Saddle Cyclery. The first of which, being the crème de la crème of the Fat Chance MTB line, the 10 year anniversary Fat.

This is no ordinary Fat Chance. The 10th anniversary frames came with a titanium, etched plate (this one’s 113 out of 200), a BOI Yo Eddy Fork and complete True Temper OX tubing. Most of which came outfitted with a full Campagnolo Record OR gruppo and were highly sought after at the $1450 MSRP (frameset). The weight? Around 23 pounds. Not too shabby and that paint job…

Those who want to read up more on the 10th Anniversary frame can check out this article from the MTB forums.

Kyle did this one justice with tons of detailed photos and he even tracked down some Campagnolo OR brake levers to replace the Avid models currently on the bike. See for yourself in the Gallery!

Richard Sachs is Selling a NOS Complete Campagnolo Derailleur Collection
SachsCampagnolo

This is like every Campagnolo collector’s dream. Richard Sachs is selling a complete set of NOS Campy rear derailleurs:

“For sale is my entire collection of Campagnolo derailleurs spanning the late 1950s through the late 1980s. This is among the most complete Campagnolo derailleur collections in existence. It may be the only collection that has every single dated Campagnolo NR rear derailleur in the condition listed here. It is comprised of only NIB/NOS (New In Box/New Old Stock) components. Everything shown for sale is new, never used, not a take-off, free of tool marks, and complete as packed the day it left the loading dock at Vicenza.

All the Nuovo Record derailleurs are marked as shown. They include PATENT, 1970, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984, 11, and NO DATE. Every derailleur comes with the original box and the original instruction sheet. Note:Other than hub locknuts (which are concealed in the assembly) and some Nuovo Record crank arms, I am not aware of any other Campagnolo item that was so overtly date-stamped by year of manufacture. This is a complete set of date-stamped rear derailleurs.

To see all 29 images click here .”

That’s a life-long collection and there’s more!  See all information at Richard Sach’s site and if you have $14,000 laying around with a hankering for some serious Campy commitment, put it to use!
