Very nice. That makes me realise mine isn't clean enough!

Just out of interest what camera do you use? They are some stunning pics.

Thanks for your comments. This mech is so clean I was even thinking of building a project around it but I'll know I'll spend years finding clean kit to match. I enjoy taking pics of rear mechs, they photograph so much nicer than seatposts or headsets. I use a Nikon D300S with a Sigma 24-70 which is more of a portrait lens so isn't great for getting everything in focus in a low light but on a sunny day can perform quite well. Sometimes the pics come out so well you notice rust that you didn't see when cleaning the bleedin' thing.

Thanks for the info, always good when you see a nice photo to know what camera was used! Funny how cycling leads into other interests :)

Our *real* Camera at home is a Nikon :D Just wondering if the last specks of rust would have come off with a good soak in Oxalate?

PS I see you have fitted new brake blocks to your V2 Campag brakes...... do you have any more blocks you would like to sell?
