Are they the right BB cups? I only ask as I had the wrong type (twice!) when swapping my group over :lol:

Very smart!
Would almost be a shame to take all that out and get it dirty!

Coming soon to a well known interweb auction site near you...

All looks very nice and too good to put on a bike. Maybe use the kit as table ornaments or objects of desire on the wall?

Mmmm. I do love a nice bit of finely engineered jewelry... and this Campy stuff does fit the bill. Phwooaarrr! However, for some reason Campy just doesn't give me the 'fizz' that Shimano does. Not sure why.

The main thing is, mate, this is your dream bike - nobody else's - and that Campy kit will work beautifully: it looks gorgeous and most importantly it is going to give YOU the 'fizz' every time you get on it. Your bike, nobody else's.
I had fun once. It was awful.

This is not going on eBay. Bespoke paint job, frame given to me by a friend, I've worked hard to afford that groupset ( £1000 is a lot of money to me), and built to exacting standards by the Doc.

It's a bike for keeps.

Next step is Super Record EPS next year for this bike and then this stuff will get swapped down to the kuota and then EPS for the TT bike after that gets a new paint job to match this bike.

Decided to do what Ian M has done and concentrate on the bike next year. So is is setting me up for that
