151bcd Campagnolo Nuovo Record Pista Oct 13, 2009

To go with my Campy 151 bcd Pista cranks on my Merckx, I just got a 151 Nuovo Record Pista ring. This isn’t just any ring. It’s a so-called ‘sprinters ring’.

Campy made these a while ago for the biggest sprinters. They were almost twice the thickness of normal Pista rings to give extra stiffness for the monsters who tore around the track.

Pretty neat and really beefy. It’s almost twice the weight of a normal ring. Anyone have anymore information on these? I’d like to see some more documentation on these rings.

I’ll be polishing this up tomorrow before I put it on the bike.
