    FREE C-Record Seatpost !?!?!?

    So, I was walking out of my LBS when the owner called over to me in the parking lot "Hey Robert, I have something for you...wait a minute"...so, I watched the fellow go to the trunk of his car and remove something which he brought to me: "Here, you're the first person I thought of when I found this in a box of junk in my garage. If you use it, great, otherwise you can just throw it away. You might use it for parts or something." I thanked him and took the green and grey item in my hand...it was a thoroughly oxidized and corroded seatpost...an aero seatpost...a seatpost with the Campy logo embossed in the sides.

    Well, I brought it home, and into the shop we went to get some rouge and fire up the buffing wheel...15 minutes later this is what I had...it looks like brand new. I just can't believe it! Check it out...

    excellent choice, a lovely brake, some of the nicest design
    I think monoplaners refer to a specific type of Campy brake design in which one brake arm threads through another brake arm. It 1st appeared in the late '80/early '90 with the Chorus group. Eventually it trickled down to Athena and even Mirage in the mid to late/90s.
    It is one of the most elegant brake design. Link below shows a pic of 'monoplaner" brake

    The brakes on this beautiful Merckx is "single pivot" Athena brakes from the early '90s. I think around '95/96 Campy start stenciling groupo names on the components.

    excuse me while I mop up the drool on my desk......I love those rags to riches stories. That shop owner just handed you about $150 dollars, since that is about what C-Record aero posts go for on ebay. Some jewelry you just can't put a price on on, and this one of those.
