Re: headset reinstallation

Missing on the picture in post no. 1 is a centering ring , which comes on top of the upper bearing.

Re: Campagnolo Daytona gear alternatives

Campagnolo Triple equipment can be had quite cheaply seconds hand from the usual source. I recently bought a Chorus triple for 70 quid in excellent condition, the bottom brackets are expensive though and is not a great idea to buy a used one. About another 50 for that.

Re: Drop bars - who uses the drop bit?

Did not a single competetive cyclist think to get into that position before aero-bars were invented? That surprises me because I have even seen city cyclists leaning their forearms on the handlebar of a Dutch-style bicycle when rushing to an appointment … but maybe they too only did that after Greg...
