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.
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.

but really, that's rubbish. We get none of it because the choices are illusory.
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...)
After all is said and done; a lot more is usually said than done.
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.
I got mine from Ribble a while back for $225 AUD
The standard Record/Chorus double BB's are 102mm.
Make sure you crank up that Miche BB nice and snug as they have habit of loosening off.
