Subject: [CR]Re: TA cages and other junk

Woe is me I only found a TA handlebar bottle and attachments. Who knew that plain water bottle cages were made of ridiculousium. That is even worse than unobtanium.

On another Woe is me front. What do you do when you have a Stronglight crank arm with the pulling threads buggered up. There is not enough meat left to clean up. I have an extra puller with two, 90degree to threading, slots cut for a chaser. I have a 22mm chaser and can get a 22mm and 23mm bottoming taps for TA and all the rest. Ah, the ingenious minds of the French.

As an equal opportunity offender; Is it so that Only Campagnolo still actually has its own foundry for cranksets, in Italy? It has come to me that the rest are buying SR blanks and then machining them to their designs(, read that as Miche, Ofmega, Gipiemme.)
