Works every time..Good luck.

Great suggestion, thanks! I pulled out my sockets, got through 16 and 17, but my harbor freight socket kit doesn't have an 18mm. But I know my dad does!

Oh yeah! Campy all the way! I've got a pair of SR cranks that I'm gonna put on here and if I can find a campy dt clamp, some campy downtube shifters.
