    Finally, a forum where someone might actually appreciate my Ciocc

    I've put it on Bike Forums a few times without so much as a murmur of a response!!

    All-aluminium: Dedacciai T6 Energy. Stiff as bricks, and weighs about 9kg. It's a great criterium bike.
    I bought the frame N.O.S. nearly 2 years ago, and I'm not sure the year of manufacture, but it has a 1" head-tube, so it's gotta be at least a 2002 or 2003 -- probably even older.

Size:  24.5 KBHey folks. I'm just a brand new member of the club. Just bought this bad boy. Needs a bit of work. But after seeing the white one get restored I'm pretty pumped.

    Thanks.
    At least as old as 2002, or at least as new as 2002?

    There are heaps of deals online on similar Ciocc frames, both alu and steel

    i love the gold, not many bikes can pull that off without looking tacky, that one looks nice.

    79, that's an earlier-gen Ciocc frame.

    ooops, I stuffed up the jpg address. Fixed.

    Yeah, he loves it, and mine it's also pretty good. I can't recommend them highly enough.

    It's probably the stiffest frame I've ever had; stiffer than my alu Soloist, Cinelli Proxima, Scapin S2, a couple of Dedacciai 7003 frames, etc, etc

    As you've probably seen, Ciocc have unfortuinately 'modernized' the decals to something which I think is hideous, so it might be a good idea to snap up a pre-(~)2006 before they go

    Bringing it back from the dead.

    I bought this as a frameset in '93 IIRC.

    Here's my Ciocc. I paid US$400 for it 6-7 years ago. Since then I've replaced the saddle, put on my mtb pedals, changed the tyres, and very occasionally cleaned the chain. It's my only road bike and I'm on it probably 1-2 times per week.

    The other week I measured the seat tube at 62.5 c-c and the top tube at 60.3cm. I'm about 6'3 or 6'4 with a long torso and arms so I need to change out the stem I guess. It has mostly 8 speed Shimano 600 parts. Most of it works fine except the STI shifter for the front derailleur is worn out so I have to kick the chain over to downshift my front chainring. As a result I can't do any group rides with this bike, which is really holding me back at this point.

    Right now I'm in the process of deciding whether or not to build up this frame, vs. ordering a custom chromoly frame (I also have two fused vertebrae in my neck) vs. buying an off-the-shelf carbon bike. While I'm posting about this frame, does anybody know if I can put 10-speed Campagnolo components on this frame? Is the rear triangle going to be wide enough? I think so but I'm not sure about these things. Will I need new wheels to do that?

    Also, could I go with a Campagnolo Centaur front derailleur and shifter and for now keep the rest of my 8-speed Shimano 600 drivetrain to keep costs down? I'm just not sure what's compatible with what or if I would have to do a wholesale upgrade. Also, could I switch out the original Ciocc chromoly fork for a carbon one? I'd keep the original to go with the frame, but I'm not sure how a carbon fork would affect geometry, and whether they come with long enough steerer tubes.

    The framebuilder guy was quite impressed with my frame and said he thought I could get $600-700 for this bike on eBay. I'm quite surprised, but does this sound reasonable? It's been repainted and the paint is worn off in several areas. It's starting to rust a bit but isn't a problem, yet.

    Thanks,
    - Andrew.

    World 77

    Excellent bikes gents! I'm new here and would like to share mine too. It's a World 77, 56cm, campy components, cinelli stem/bar. Pretty much as it came when it was first purchased back in May 9, 1983. The old arraya wheelset was put in for takings pics, still can't decide if I want to stay with the original tubulars or use a modern wheelset. And yes, I ride it with the handlebar at that angle. Sorry for the crappy indoor pics, but its about 40deg outside.
    Cheers!

    Talking Ciocc Designer 84

    Hey gang,

    Just bought this gorgeous Designer 84 It should be on the UPS truck today.
    I'll be harvesting parts from a late 90s Deda Tre Ciocc of undetermined origin.

    The Designer is metal flake grey and the chrome is very clean, a few chips here and there but no pitting or rust. I plan on riding the hell out of it. Not interested in a time stamped museum piece. If it were the Ray Dobbin's Ciocc then yes, absolutely. But this baby is begging to be ridden hard. I've read that these bikes perform extremely well under max output. Looking forward to taking it out on the local Saturday hammer ride up the coast and see how we fare.

    Components: Campy Record Aluminum Crank 10 speed 53/39. Campy Veloce 10 speed shifters, Campy Record Aluminum Brakes, Campy Veloce Aluminum front and rear derailleurs. 3TT Pro Chrome Quill Stem. 3TT Gimondi Bend Criterium Bars.

    Wheels:Spinergy Stealth 43mm aero wheels. / Campagnolo Khamsin.
    Continental Gp4000 tires.

    (My apologies to the purists but the 3TTT quill stem and 3TTT Gimondi style bars with the 43mm aeros look super hot together).

    Vintage Hot Rod all the way.

    Complete build pics in a week or so!!!!

    I am riding my Pro Race Carbon. Did some work on it over the winter, had to re-paint it, did my own decals and it rides very nice. I need to get a better newer pic now that the snow is all gone.

    Its a EOM 16.5 steel / carbon frame...



    Before paint work:


    Many will say I shouldnt have re-painted it, but there were two cracks that needed to be welded and after that, the paint was ruined anyhow, and I hate red on a bike, so....Green

    that has a perfect paint job, if it was all scratched up, i would agree re-spraying it, but not as it is, its perfect now.
