Anyone know where I can get some of these headset bearings in Cape Town/ Stellenbosch for my vintage Benino Iron man39E4B54D-28A3-45FA-BBB6-2AEC90A3DAB9.jpeg.59fe558123f48706c71dbf9a6edb8339.jpeg

 

 

Mark at Marks Bicycle Workshop in Bellville should be able to help you out. Alternatively, buy a small packet of bearings and dump the race and repack them loose.

Hi Guys, I am bringing a Babelegi express back to life. It’s got Shimano 105 brake leavers with campy hoods. The calipers are Zeus 2001 (made in Spain) a bit of a mix and match. Should I try and get 105 calipers with Shimano hoods or rather try and source campy leavers?

Getting Campagnolo levers is getting very hard to find and expensive. I would recommend you replace the hoods. Cheaper option. PM to order (I have stock).

Thanks, I’m still undecided as to which way I want to go. At least I know where to get the hoods. 
 

The brake calipers and crank is Zeus.
