I've been a Bianchi man all my riding life. Last year I decided to build a cross bike to maintain winter fitness rather than sit on a trainer in my basement.
I had a Bianchi axis farme set, then I came across this cool vintage Colnago. I sold the Bianchi and built up the Colnago, put it together and ran all winter no problems.
This year I got a late start in the tear down clean/lube and rebuild. Putting it back together I broke one of the return springs for my brakes, took me a week to get another spring. Finally got it all together and on my maiden voyage day before yesterday ( see I told you I got a late start) I'm blasting down a trail, I probably went down a couple hundred times last year, and picked up a twig got caught in my rear deraileur and wiped it as well as bent the hanger. Carried the bike home re aligned the hanger took the rear deraileur from my road bike replaced the jockey wheels to go from 10sp to 9sp and it's back and I had an excellent ride yesterday.
What's next? I'm afraid Eduardo is jinxin me. What do I do?
"Eduardo please forgive me, you know I'm going to retire the old Ti Mega tube and try the new carbon frameset. I promise if you bring the carbon technology to the cross scene I'll even go with that. (I'm secretly looking at the new Alan carbon farme set) Please, please Eduardo, forgive me. You probably would have liked Ernesto had you known him."

What size is you 'nago? If you want to worship false idols I will take the true frame off your hands.

Apologies to all for the blasphemy.
