(The link just as an example..)

PART X!

As a front derailleur I will be using a Campagnolo Record 1052/NT (1978 - 1982, 3-hole narrow band) I have in my partsbox, this one: http://velobase.com/ViewComponent.aspx? ... 1&Enum=113 Because I cant use a braze-on with the frame

Will Put pic up tomorrow, cause it's to dark to get a nice pic at the moment.

PRICE= €0, got it of a Peugeot bike and replaced it with a more suitable Simplex mech that I got for free when I bought an other Peugeot bike.

WEIGHT= 92g

pic I got of the net, not my mech.. but identical:
Image
------------------------------------------------
More than half of the weight gone :( (UPDATE: Scale gave me an extra 101g! Because I counted 2,9kg for the fork&frame, but it turns out, they weight is 2,799kg!... so still more than half of the weight to go!!)
Luckely my budget is still ok! This way I can afford some nice lightweight parts: BB, brake calipers & levers, Headset, hubs/rims/spokes maybe, etc...

Ill post the handlebar tapes I have here tomorrow! Ive selected four.. (Black Cinelli, Dark Grey Deda, Black Ambrosio, and Silverish Carbon Look Bike Ribbon) But I cant decide which one to take, so Ill need some help on that one.. Bought 10 tapes as a lot for 55 Euro, so they've cost me €5,5 each, weight will not be much of a difference so It will be comfort and aesthetics to consider.... and of course the tape has to match the lever hoods..

PART XI

Handlebar tape!

Got a choice out of four:

1) Deda Barrel Grey Bar tape
Image


PRICE= On the box €11,50, actually paid only €5,50
WEIGHT = 54g!

2) BBB Race Ribbon Carbon - High Silver

PRICE= €8,95 on the box, actually paid €5,50
WEIGHT= 64g

Image

3) Cinelli '(C-Ribbon, the original) Bar tape - Black Carbon Look

PRICE= $16 on the net, paid €5,50
WEIGHT = 83g

Image

4) Ambrosio Handlebar Ribbon - Black (Leather look)

PRICE= on box €9,50; paid €5,50
WEIGHT= 81g (no bar plugs)

pic here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?VI ... 0646924400

Which one should I choose? Maybe Ill decide after I bought new Brake Levers&Hoods..

Someone got some nice and not to expensive aero Campagnolo brake levers (with or without hoods)??

=> Will probably go for the Deda tape, cause it's the lightest and I already used a set of these on another bike. I think they have a nice comfy feel.. Also think the dark grey will match perfectly with the bars and a lot of hoods&brake levers and and with the lighter grey/silverish frame&fork..

Weight = ca. 3oz, with the plastic cups. Sorry, my analogue scales aren't as sensitive as your digital ones, and use an old incompatible weight system... Good for weighing out the ingredients for bread though.

Love it. I'm certainly in the retro-modern mix as long as it is tastefull and it all "hangs together".
