Finally! waited many weeks to get the parts together. My mechanic friend built it up today. There are still detials to be changed, but here it is, 99% finished. My forth bike and second fixie.
Pinarello steel road frame;
Dura-Ace high flange 3X open pro;
Campy Pista crank, 49-18 gearing;
ITM finish kit.
Took for a short spin, really nice ride. Now, all I need are my white bar tapes to come in.
Beautiful.......Dave Hickey

Are those the campy carbon brake levers? Are you also using Campy brakes? I'm thinking of getting them for one of my LOOK SS. The high flange DA hubs are sooo smooth. The work great for Fixes and SS's

yes, those are the carbon lever with centaur calipers. Not that I am obsessed about the carbon lever, there just aren't many alternatives. I am sure it will look sweet on your LOOK.

Fantastic! One of the first racing pics I have in my mind is Battaglin climbing in the Giro on a red Pinarello, with basic white decals. And white bar tape! That tape will look so cool on your bike, contrasting with the black hoods, levers and stem.

Enough babbling, I have a question. Are you using a Campy track bb or something else?

Thanks, and enjoy that fine machine.

Yes, the BB is campy track. nmQubeley
