Once I get mine on the road, we should schedule a photo shoot of the twins!
Yes, let's do that meetup...

Mine came w 28c Gatorskins under the Record brakes. If I switch to the more modern components, I'll use the FSA K-Force brakes I have, which have great clearance... Should be no problem. Wondering if my big size has a bit more room?

I'm feeling the urge to put modern bars and a spare Record 11 group on it though. I have a nice pair of wide Campy clinchers and if I put it to 11 I can share tubulars w my Kirk, and use this on my Hammer over the winter. Tough call. The silver Record bits look great and shift perfectly. But these bars make my hands hurt. And the braking is just not that great.

Can I use the 8-spd cassette on a WI T11 Campy FHB?

You can’t. 8sp freehub for 8sp cassettes only. Then 9/10/11/12 all same freehub.

Also yeah the brakes are terrible, I had monoplanars and when I put a modern brake in there was night and day

Dang. Well, that may make the choosing a bit easier.

May have to test the waters for the Record 8 groupset w the wheels and see what they are worth.

These are early gen dual pivots, not monoplanars, and are excellent. My bet is you need new pads (what are yours, 23 years old?). Go with fronts at least, Kool Stop make some for this holder.

Could be the wrong pads for the CD surface too - I think it rubbed a bunch of anodizing off..

Yup. These are a great ride. Even more so with modern bits and gearing. Enjoy Clean39T!

While I love the silver 2001 chorus 10 on my old Serotta Atlanta, I kinda wish it had record 11, but, I don't think it would make the bike any better to be honest. It will be heavy no matter what. It rides really well with Neutron or my old Ksyrium ES hoops, but it's a tank when compared to my Zank.

Good move on the 31.8 quill stem and new stuff.

I may go that route on my MXL this year.

Tore this one down tonight and am happy to report the paint is in even better condition than I thought - plus the pipes look like new from inside the BB - zero rust dust.

Kind of want to build it up w Record 12, but 11 will have to do for now...

Soon anyway. Got some waiting on parts to do.

Out with the 8 spd Record and older wheels (see classifieds if you're interested), and in with the Record 11 - 50/34, 11/29, plus some Athena brakes for now...and that's a Caletti stem that I wish was 110mm or 120mm, but it's 100mm and that's a bit short after all. Nitto M106 bars. WI T11 hubs to Pacenti SL23 v2 rims. Zipp SL post. Fabric Scoop. Mandibles. Corsa 25s. Record window skewers.



Did 44 mi and 4400 ft of vert on it today through that misty fog. Very much enjoyed the ride. And got home to find out I was only 1-min off my PR on a 2.5mi, 1100ft climb - despite this being 5-lbs heavier than the bike I rode the PR on, and me being at least 10-lbs heavier... Must be the planing. Lolz.

Seriously though. This is a great handling bike. I do need to go out to a 110mm stem at least, but the feel of the frame is quite nice. Zero wobble when sitting up at 18-20mph. I prefer the overall feel of my Kirk. This is pretty dang good though.
