Re: Clicking noise when pedalling - run out of ideas

I experienced an annoying clicking noise on one of my bikes a few years ago. I assumed it was
probably the square tapered bottom bracket, so set about changing it when I got home. I was in for a big surprise. It transpired that a crack had developed around the seat tube and down tube. It was on a titanium frame that I bought from China. The other two frames bought from the same company are still going strong.

Re: Swap black Campag brakes for silver!

If the OP doesn't want the rear single pivot Chorus caliper, I'd be interested.

Yes, that's true. I've even worn them in winter months, with no negative effects to my legs.

Not a stupid question! Just in case you didn't realise (don't bother replying) this thread is in reference to bicycle maintenance/fettling, etc.

Why don't you just put your hand in your pocket (or get out your debit/credit card) and send the
levers to a company that actually fixes them?

I think I'm right in saying that Veloce only went to the dreaded Ultrashift in around 2009. I
