Hey, with enough elbow grease, any black component can be silver.PinarelloFan said:I wish a company out there would make a nice silver stem . The thompson is ugly and the Deda isn't silver . But they make a silver Newton bar that is actually silver . Oh well , you can't have everything .. Well maybe Tom brady can , but I can't ......
Surprising to hear that, I have an MxL that I have been on since 2000 and a Peg and there really is no comparison. In the other direction.PinarelloFan said:There is a much bigger problem . (or not a problem) This bike made me realize how special my Pegoretti is . They are truley in different classes . Killer bike , but falls short !! Maybe it's an unfair comparison .
Guess it's like blondes or brunettes . Everyone has there preference . Don't get me wrong , it's a great ride . But not magic . But like blondes and brunettes , I like to hop on them both......From your knowlege and quality of stable , your opinion is respected above most ....terry b said:Surprising to hear that, I have an MxL that I have been on since 2000 and a Peg and there really is no comparison.

I called all over the country lookg for silver rivit regals . Some even chuckled when I asked . They are long gone . It's odd , you see so many nos saddles on ebay , but not those . I guess for obvious reasons . The brass will clash w/ many buildsbigbill said:Classic steel frames need Regal saddles. I have them on all my bikes. I need a new one for my pegoretti, I wish they still had silver rivets.
Though there is not a visible curve one the cannondale's stem, the clamp itself is offset from the post axis by about one inch. The Thomson setback is pretty close to the same. On the normal (straight) Thomson posts, the clamp is on the post axis, so I thought I may need the setback. I do like to have my saddle back a little ways. In the riding I've done so far, I like the way it feels where it is now, and looking at the rails, it couldn't go back much further (maybe 1/8")PinarelloFan said:Although it's needed for some , a setback post can make any bike hard on the eyes IMO . You don't have one on that cannondale . what made you use one on this ? Was the geometry that different ? I considered those cranks , how do u like um
terry b said:I have a Fina, and so it's a bit of an "oranges to tangerines" type of comparison.
But more importantly, I like Colnago's approach to geometry more than Pegoretti's. The biggest difference is in how they "sit", not how rough or smooth they are.
