We need to ride this

This was my ride this am, and man this has to be the flagship for me. It has all that city riding offers: massive headwinds on the lake, rollerbladers to buzz, solid head-down crankable long streets, traffic dodging, a trip through downtown with els roaring overhead, cafe con leche, a bike shop that sells bianchi, and the potential to be hassled by a gangsta while at a red light. Beautiful.

Campy super record cranks use 144mm BCD chainrings. Other than old Campy, the only other application of 144 BCD chainrings is on many contemporary track bikes. Those chainrings, though, also use 1/8″ track chains which means also needing a matching rear sprocket. Oh and to make it juicy, it’s not really clear that Campy ever made 42T 144BCD chainrings (since that would be kinda small for a big ring).

The moral of the story: if you have old fancy campy cranks and want a smaller chainring, you’re gonna be upgrading your drivetrain to 1/8″ or paying collectors prices for the VERY scarce ebay appearances of smaller chainrings. This is the moral that ol’ Chuck was not filling me in on.

For your consideration dear cyclists

I contacted an italian guy who knows Paletti in Italy about Cupcake. His response:

Penso sia degli anni ’70 non so dire il modello per ora

If he’s right, that may have been a better buy than I imagined.

FWIW. And not quite 2 hours, sorry. It has been keeping me entertained for a couple of weeks, however.
