Finally finished putting the Record 10sp on the old Bianchi. It's awsome. Great to get back to what I know, Campy. The shifting is silky smooth, I can actually shift to the big ring from the drops. I really couldn't do this with the Dura Ace, too far a reach to the brake lever and then to push. I'm sooooooo happy happy happy.

Side note I used the Sachs ( something? ) III link from Branford bike. It was a snap to put together, no tools at all. It's so easy I can see myself taking the chain off to lube it every time. Ofcourse as of yet there isn't any long term evaluation, I'll let you know.

I have Spinergy Rev X's Shimano 8sp, Dura Ace 8sp STI's, Cane Creek brakes, American Classic cranks and B/B, and a Profile quill stem for sale if any one is interested.

Forgot to mention, I went back to sew ups. Life is good.

When I was 15 my first real bike had sew ups. Years and miles of riding no flats. I think that is just a non issue. Particularly if I carry a glued spare in my bag. Let's see no more tire irons, no more tube I should have room. Although the tire is a little bulkier than the tube. Heck I may go all the way retro and dump the nice leather seat pack and just fold up the tire and tie it under the seat. And of course I'll cary my cell.
