They did make a 26.0 version, which I've got the 6400 one shimmed to a skinnier bar. And now that I have a 26 bar, I get myself a 25.4 stem. :o

Well at least you know the difference....... unlike this retro noob who hamfistedly fits his 26mm handlebars into 25.4mm stem.......... :shock:

Don't butcher the stem. Just buy a set of Nitto bars. They can be had for $50, including the delivery, off some international eBay sellers.

Casati with 10 speed Chorus. The frame was an impulse buy about 6 months ago when I went into the office on a Sunday to catch up on work and spent too much time looking at eBay..

Now finally built with the first ride tomorrow

Thanks for the compliments, I followed your Colnago build closely and was impressed by the care you put into your component selection. My builds are rarely so well planned. The exception is the 3ttt stem which is an extravagance I couldn't resist

As to the model, no I have no idea. My post purchase googling has led me to believe that this frame was repainted a few years ago by Paconi, it also has 130mm rear spacing so I'm assuming that was reset around the same time.

Casati information is fairly scarce. While I'd like to learn more, I'm more interested to find out how it rides. If it rides well I won't care what it is and it will be a keeper

Well, tomorrow's ride will be proof but if looks count for anything it's a keeper........ :D
