So I have time for one last winter project before I leave PDX for my next assignment. In honor of what seems to be a time honored C&V tradition I will not reveal the make until the build is finished...but it does figure "C" in the name. So is it a stately Colnago, a racy Ciocc, a classy Cinelli, or maybe even an early pre-aluminum Cannondale experiment with polished aluminum lugs? Time will tell.
I will say that she's going to sport mostly NR components, and I will be keeping the wheels tubulars. I have never owned and used sewups, but when I was a kid that's all you ever heard about. So I'll finally have a steed with them. I'll soon be getting the frame prepped, and then waiting for a warmish day (hah!) to shoot her with framesaver. I'm planning to do the build either Thanksgiving if things go ahead of schedule, or Xmas if things slip. My only real nod to comfort and modernity will be putting on speedplays so I can ride her with my road shoes.
Huge thanks to KRhea for contributing from his secret stash of Campy jewels hid deep in the Cascade mtns.
Hope you like the pics.
