Never broken one of these before, until this morning. Looks like it's 7-speed again for the wet ride home. Time for new cables, chain and mountains cluster, and a new flat-landers cluster. The Colnago seems to be wearing on other fronts too. When cleaning up after the miserable weekend ride, found a horizontal crack (not just a scratch) on the downtube where it is dented. Hopefully it is only cosmetic (paint). On a positive note, caught up with Nige yesterday arvo whilst he was passing through Sydney. He looks fit and lean (as usual) and is looking forward to the Alpes trip.
