You know how the Mrs. is always saying "but they were half price... so I bought a cool dozen!" or something to that effect?!? My standard line is usually something like "but I didn't know Pottery Barn even had an Arbor Day decoration section!"

We all justify our purchases, right? Well, I had committed to buy a set of Croce d'Aune Deltas for $300 (the going rate for a used set). But those were rough, no logos, needed wheel guides on the brake shoes, maybe a new gasket, etc etc. It would set me back another $150 to make them what I wanted. So when I spotted these for $250 with local pickup, I couldn't pass them up!

If I were to justify these, I'd say something to the effect of "this guy just basically PAID ME $200 to take them from him!"

Now, just wait until you see the bars I'm getting for the Rossin! Each part on that bike will be odd, rare or early aero!

  1. Now you are going to want to get a set of Record Delta brakes, they are definitely more attractive with their narrower outer dimensions
