Upgrading BB, cranks and brakes - SE Lager

Postby acb » Wed Mar 19, 2014 7:05 pm

Hi guys. Quick qn.

Have one of these http://www.sebikes.com/archive/2010/700c-lager3

Would like to update / upgrade some components, namely BB, cranks and brakes.

BB, will this fit? http://www.wiggle.com.au/campagnolo-rec ... 5360326602

To go with these http://www.wiggle.com.au/campagnolo-rec ... -chainset/

Brakes : http://www.wiggle.com.au/tektro-r539-lo ... er-brakes/

Mucho thanks in advance.

Yes,

Yes,

and No.


Your bike uses standard reach brakes, and these tektro's being long reach will not fit. That being said, they wouldn't be a real upgrade to what you have.

A combination of Levers, cables, and high quality brakes (dual pivot) - Dura Ace, Sram Red, Campagnolo record will give you much better stopping power.

Unless the bb is worn out...why replace it? Better to put the money toward a classic track frame and some tools I reckon.

Thanks HLC - from my quick search I thought the brakes were long drop. Makes it easier anyway.

Drubie - BB is rooted. Classic frame would be ideal but too time poor (fml) to find one / build it / source parts etc etc

Whoah! Someone want to spot me the spondoolies for a set of them Record Pistas whilst I am flat broke and they're on sale!?

(way too nice for an S.E. Lager, imo.... but hey it's your bike.. your money...)

Thought it was worthwhile replying to say that I took this advice and am now looking at sourcing a frame and building up on that. Cheers

If you really going to put Campagnolo Pistas on the Lager, instead of the pista bottom bracket, get a 111mm Veloce or Centaur bottom bracket. The dimensions are identical to the Pista item and they are sealed. Dont buy a Record or Chorus road 111m BB though as they are asymetrical and are designed for triple cranksets.

Good tip.

The standard Record/Chorus double BB's are 102mm.

Thanks for the assistance. I ended up scoring a real good deal on a Miche CS, BB, and chain.

Make sure you crank up that Miche BB nice and snug as they have habit of loosening off.
