specifications for building Colnago CT1 bikesilroadbike
Jul 18, 2002 5:06 PM
I bought the frame and fork. I am buying the Campagnolo Record 10 speed kit minus the wheels. I need to know the size of seat post, stem, etc. Is it the Italian thread BB I need to order? Also, is it braze on?

Thanks for much for your answers
Someone correct me if I'm wrong..DINOSAUR

The mistake you made was not to get Campy hubs and custom handmade wheels. If you are looking for one of those showoff wheels have a look if any of the man-who-knows- about-bike in the Tour are using them.

Take a look at the Camy Eurus or Neutron wheels. I've got the Neut's and a pair ao SSC's. The Neut's will look and perform wonderfully on your Italian steed.

FWIW, I'd suggest an AC seatpost or similar type that has micro-adjustment. The Campy seatposts really suck when it comes to fine adjustment. If you really want a Ti record sp let me know. I've got a perfect one for sale.

Good luck..... you're going to love the CT1.
