I couldn't get the bike I initially planned for l'eroica ready, so with one week left there followed a chance of plans.
So dear people, I present you my...
'Strada bianche' !
The Vittorio Strada before:
The Vittorio Strada with the l'eroica specific modifications:
Low-land freewheel replaced by one with substantailly larger cogs. One 'hatch-plate' derailleur made place for another: Dura-Ace EX went for early Deore:
Campagnolo chainset replaced for Suginos with smaller ring. Handy one key release bolts:
The Avocet 25mm tires weren't really 25mm. Hopefully the 26mm Specialized tires with 'Armadillo technology' will offer more comfort and snake bite resistance on the poor 'Strade Bianche' roadsurface:
Campagnolo Electa seat. I like it. Of course I won't forget to let the air out in transport... (plane) :
Some additional parts and some extra padding has to be put in the box and I am ready to leave:
