    Show Your Moser!

    I think the top of my wish list now. How about some fodder for the fantasy - bonus points for internal routing!

    The first really nice bicycle I built up was a Francesco Moser, built from an eighties something NOS Moser frame set. I spent a lot of money and sold the bike to cover my expenditures. I never even rode the bike. I do not like spending a bunch of money on an old bicycle.

    Anyway, read about my Moser, if you are at all interested.

    > show me your Moser

    why, gladly!









    I got this 1978 Francesco Moser San Cristobal frame in Austria and built it up as a fixed gear with blasphemously modern components. Originally it was a racing bike with tubulars, but it does fine with 700C wheels. For a racing bike, it is amazingly, even alarmingly comfortable. Eventually, the plan is to get another frame that I will build up as a fixed gear, and turn the Moser frame back into a geared racing bike (I have kept all the braze-ons intact of course). I am very happy with this frame; it is a keeper.

    I got my1995 (?) Moser Leader AX frame and fork at a bike shop in Erd, Hungary in July 2010. I built it all up over the following couple of months and ended up with the best bike i have ever had. moser..jpgDSCF0465..jpg I built up velocity aerohead rims with blue nipples. A mostly 2007 Campy record group. and other great stuff like Nokon cable housing. It is a steel framed bike that weighs in at 19.04lbs. After the first 200 miles i realized that this is a machine built for high mountain swoopy descents. and it looks like i get bonus points because the rear break cable is routed through the top tube.

    Jesse, sounds like you need a Moser-focused, rambling trip around Europe for a graduation present!

    That's a stupendous idea, Neal! I'll start in Italy to get an idea of the origins, then work my way up to the Netherlands via the Paris-Roubaix course to find one in my size. Of course, I'll be so close to Bavaria that I'd have to pop in and drink some brau and eat schnitzel.

    Instead though, I'll be moving to Medford and changing diapers! Woo-hah!

    This is... damn near perfect. Inspired me!
