That’s a Mig 70 and Mag 170 right?

They do look cool.
Do you still have those and could you maybe take some pics with different tires on them? Just to see the overall profile. Would be really curious to see them with the Bontrager TT tires that have those wings on ‘em."Nothing compares to the simple pleasures of a bike ride," said John F.

Not sure if that was even directed at me, but I didn’t mean to say I hate it.
What I actually meant to say is that I love that you have it.
It’s not something I would have chosen for myself, but if I came to a race and was wandering around looking at the bikes after it, I’d definetly pause looking at this one, and I’d enjoy it.
It also had me thinking about what I would do, which was nice.

To be honest, neither the shape of the frame nor the paintjob are truly my cup of tea, but it’s still jaw dropping.
Custom painted H3s could definetly win me over.October 24, 2013 at 4:24 pm #94979
What is the mechanism to tension the chain?
I’m not sure what exactly you want to know, but looks like vertical drop outs to me.October 24, 2013 at 1:32 pm #94977
That is indeed very cool.
If some nitpicking is allowed, I’d try to use removable valve extenders.October 24, 2013 at 1:27 pm #94976
Yeah, finding a 22 hole rim would be challenging, I can’t think of one right now.
I wonder why Campagnolo chose 22 holes.
Some rims you can get custom drillings, but one has to wonder if the likely upcharge and limitation in choices is worth it, especially considering that very nice front hubs are not all that expensive, and you’d have a new hub, with new warranty and all that.
The rear would make some sense, since those are more pricey to get, but I’d probably recommend a little deeper and stiffer rim to make the 24h work well.
If you are a very light rider, you could probably get away with a shallower, lighter rim.October 23, 2013 at 6:27 am #94971
I’m no Campagnolo expert, but you I’m pretty sure you can. The question is if it makes sense. You’d need new spokes, in this case straight pull ones, which are a little more expensive and limit your options.
A lot of stuff goes into wheel builds. I guess we could start with, were you happy with the wheels?October 14, 2013 at 6:49 pm #94822
Are those really Jet 6s? They really look like 4s, for some weird reason.October 14, 2013 at 6:44 pm #94821
These would fit the same frames and forks as the Shimano direct mount brakes, right?July 23, 2013 at 3:09 pm #94337
Showbike material indeed!
How about a video of a spinning wheel?
I can’t really tell, are they tubs or clinchers?July 15, 2013 at 8:40 am #94231
Looks a little bit like dynamite to me. Nobel invented it to make mining safer and created the next generation of weapons.
Then again, I don’t like the guy next to me to spending multiple seconds at a time staring at his cyclocomputer either. So, this might even help, if people use it correctly. That’s a pretty big if, though.
That being said, I’d want one, but I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t wear it on every ride.July 1, 2013 at 1:36 pm #94152
I’m not sure if anybody has removed the plug, but people have cut and reconnected the wires. As far as I can tell results do vary, though. It’s obviously not going to be as strong and water proof as the cable is out of the box and your RD might stop working or will shift all the time.
We’re talking about 7970, right? Is it the internal wire kit you have, or the external one?June 21, 2013 at 6:05 am #94045
That custom paint job looks really promising.
I too have been thinking the same thing.
I have 2 cervelos.
2006 Cervelo Soloist Aluminum w/ Sram Red, Chris King classic hubs, open Pro, Zero grav brakes<br>
2008 Cervelo SLC-SL w/ DA7900, Tune hubs, the old reynolds DV46C rims, Zero grav brakes.
I’ve been thinking of replacing my soloist aluminum. It rides harsh and the bottom bracket is not stiff. I can make the chain touch the front derailleur plates on a full out sprint. I have a lot, and I mean a lot of kilometers on this thing. As the SLC-SL is for nice day rides only.
Slightly OT, but I turned my aluminium soloist into a training TT bike and like it quite a bit in that role. Resale value isn’t all that high here, and I was too attached to it to just give it away. I’ve put an adjustable stem on it and with the flipable seatpost head it’s super flexible when it comes to fooling around with the position.June 20, 2013 at 12:30 pm #94038
This is just really well done, IME.
Maybe find the Fizik seatpost rubber thingy in a different color, but that’s really the least of concerns.
