Looking for something special to go on my Witcomb road bike. Rest of the groupo is DA7400.

Perhaps Non-fluted campag super record, Middleburn, Tune.

Suprise me!

Thanks

Jo

Get the DA chainset fitted on too 8) This will finish off your bike nicely.

You can't beat a full matching groupset instead of 'odds n sodds'

Forum member ''SYN-CROSSIS'' has a very nice Merlin and the PBC chainset which is on it looks fantastic, he's proberly polished the thing up but one of these is just gorgeous.

Those topline cranks new are $180 dollars or £116 new, then there are the 130mm BCD chainrings :oops:

StrongLight [zicral] make some nice 130BCD rings !

If money is no object i'd start looking around for these cranks but its all up to you, maybe someone has a set hanging up in their shed :wink:

All i can say is contact them ! Thats if there is any such link :(



Also the Stronglight 107 is considered to be a bling factor if they are polished up and having solid sections on the chainrings make these chainsets stand out from the crowd
The solid/uncut sections were done like this as Stronglight says the chain-ring can spin faster more smoothly and cut through the air faster than a cut-out ring.

A set on Hilary's website for £42 + about £4 postage....
