got your email and responded but it was sent back

so in cutting a long story short the message was to the effect - cool either way...just let me know (but of course a lot longer and meandering in thought).


got it the 2nd time...bianchi boy

I'll let you know when I make up my mind. Money is also a factor. I may have to wait a while one way or the other the way the bills have been piling up lately. Plus, parts keep wearing out on my main ride and my bike shop is getting rich off me.
i hear ya....our lust burns our pockets...;-) NmSpirito

Saw a set of Shimano 600 brake levers at Renaissance Cycles that I am interseted in. $19. $20 shipping. Anyone ordering a few bits that could split shipping?

i can show you where to get a pair of them stateside

new in package dura-ace or 600 for $25 + shipping

gum colored and holy lever glory. i have a set and can send you pics ...

the seller is in AZ and is going on holiday soon but if you are keen perhaps you can catch her before she is away. no realtion to her but i am a happy customer - all her other stuff is MTB. she gets a little spammed out on emails and is virus wary so ill forward your email to her and then you can settle details and make a trade if it suits.

tis is a pic from the seller that i have as made as a link but it really doesn't do them or her justice as they are very nice (and in package)

you could have them for the weekend - let m eknow and ill check to see if she is still pre-vacation - enjoy

That sounds like it is calling my name. Most of the group on my prolect is early 600 stuff. I have a pair of safety lever junky DiaCompes that were original equip. Looking for the goooood stuff.

Take a look and see if the reniassance place is very similar to what she has if you could. They have 2 different 600 models; one is @ $19 is is early and the $29 pair is later. Not worried or fanatical over logo type as long as the stuff is 600.

Talk to me.
sounds like ya'll got it worked out , but ...tarwheel

If I decide to order the frame from Renaissance, I'll post a message or send an email to let you know. Things keep getting more complicated for me, though. Just when I was ready to ship the Merckx frame out to have it inspected and possibly repaired, one of my occasional riding buddies mentioned he has a used Merckx frame for sale in my size. I'm gonna go look at that, plus my friend also told me about someone locally who can repair and paint frames, so I'm gonna check that out as well. My other problem is that money I was gonna spend on the new frame/ restoration is being eaten up by Campy components that seem to all be wearing out at around the 5000 mile mark on my main bike. So far, I've had to replace my chain and cables and it looks like the cassette and headset are also do for a change.

Spiritos contact for levers stateside has sold all her stuff, so I am back to looking for 600 levers. I have not looked hard anywhere like I did for my set of rims. keep me in mind for the overseas deal.
