I have a number of auctions that I have running right now on ebay. For those of you going to L'Eroica, there are a number of items that will undoubtedly be appropriate.
You can see all of the auctions listed here:
There is a pair of French threaded SR alloy pedals for whoever it was
who was looking for just such a beast about 3 weeks ago. I'm sorry that
I didn't have them at that time, as I am selling these for a shop-owner
friend of mine who is slowly but surely emptying out his back room. The
pedal auction can be found here:
I then have 6 different models/sizes of vintage cycling shoes, including some timely appropriate Detto Pietro winter boots.
For L'Eroica, I have a NOS Avocet 41 tooth chainring for a 144 BCD chainset. Just what is called for on those Nuovo record equipped bikes as you ride up the strade bianche of Chianti.
Also for L'Eroica riders, I am offering a NOS 13-32 Maillard Helicomatic freewheel.
Lastly, the piece de résistance is a very rare hand made Titanium
handlebar/stem combo made by Passoni in Italy. The Passoni name has been
brought up in the past in conjunction with their true constructeur
bikes. When you take a look at these handlebars, you will immediately
understand just how special this builder is. The handlebars/stem combo
was made out of sheets of pure titanium that was formed, welded and
cleaned up. The combo fits a 22.2 mm steerer. The bars are 43.5 cm wide
(outer to outer) and the stem is 11 cm. Even if you are not interested
in or financially able to buy these for your bike, they are worthwhile
to give a look to:
