Beth's Univega Ital Sport

I absolutely needed a third bike, as no upstanding bike-shop-groupie would be caught dead with just two bikes. So when this full campy Univega Ital Sport came in, in a harder to find 48cm frame size, I couldn't pass it up.

Some changes were made to make the Univega suit my preferences. We installed Tektro aero levers, as the Campy levers were difficult for my smaller hand size. Double sided MKS pedals replace the chunkier stock pedals. Brooks honey bartape and matching Brooks B17S saddle improve the overall look and feel.

This bike rides very fast and is very responsive. Now I can attempt to keep up with my husband on faster longer rides.
