I could have bought a Masi V3 last week, '90's model, full campag with proton wheels for 600 euro's-is that expensive?
I think it may have been a US model.
My mate in Sweden put me on to M Hovey's site, very informative.

Seems like a good price to me.

saarf 04-01-12 10:11 AM

ok

I've invariably heard that the V3 is the best bike some people have ridden, how would one compare with a colnago super pui?

Bought this bike today, Campagnolo Triomphe gears, brakes, everything except handlebars and levers. Campagnolo laced to Ambrosio Elite rims.
Really nice condition, one owner and my size exactly! And I only payed 380 quid for it, thats a really good price (in my honest opinion) seeing as I'm in Norway.

Woodrup is a framebuilder from England, but the guy I bought the bike from got it in the US, the frame is in good condition. Cinelli dropouts and bbcup.

Needs a new saddle and some new (bright pink) bartape + a thorough clean and it's perfect!

Looks more like Victory than Triomphe to me: the satin finish on the cranks and the coke-spoon indents on the backs of the shift levers are characteristic of Victory. No worries, though -- Victory was the higher of the tow groups.

Just put this together quite quickly from parts I picked up recently and the frame I was particularly happy to find in my size. Not super light (the wheels are monsters) but it rides incredibly well indeed - it's hard to describe the level of faith I have that the bike is going to do exactly as I want at any corner at any speed having only ridden about 50km on it so far.

It's a mix of 8-speed Athena and Chorus, with 9-speed Athena dual pivot brakes and the wheels are Rigida DP18 on Mavic 501s.

le genre de vélo qu'on ne voit pas de ce côté de l'océan... débile ! ils essayaient d'imiter colnago ou quoi ?

Just had my first ride and last shown in the before and after thread it's had a few updates, new Benotto tape and a freewheel change. I had a winner 7 speed on it worked in the shed but on the road the derailler nicked the spokes so had to ride enormous hills on the 19 cog :cry: So fitted a Shimano SIS 6 speed, now i've got spoke clearance and a 23 top cog should make it easier now and doesn't look out of place either, happy now. :love:
"Oh" and my first ride with a Concor saddle. So comfy like sitting on the sofa watching TV all day.

That is a nice refinish on the bike. I think the treatment of the rear end of the bike works nicely with the subtle fade on the seat stays and chain stays, and the black headtube against the yellow paint. Overall a quite nice job on the bike.

jbchybridrider 04-08-12 09:46 AM

Thanks mate I'm happy it, hanging to ride it again but so many rides to choose from. You know what I mean.;)

Epgonzalez 04-14-12 11:47 AM

Love all the bikes. Just bought a fausto on eBay. Look forward to sharing the build pics.

Hard to tell which one I like better, as they are both top shelf!

heres another of mine. raleigh competition late 80s i believe? crappy cell phone pic. its a nice dark green with a light green headtube. the 32s are comfy on the ma-40s. just picked up a zimbale bag and a nitto saddlebag grip for it. i need a pump and a better seatpost though.

That's really nice. Don't know if you'll see this, but can you tell me what stem that is? The VO?

Creme Brulee 04-16-12 09:30 AM

that is the vo stem. having the drop bars at the right height has really changed my mind about how comfortable they are.

In the process of building up my first road bike in 10 years. I have been riding my crosscheck as a commuter and touring bike for the past 5 years (Should've gotten the LHT, but oh well) and I'm sick of people flying by me on there road bikes.
So i was given this beautiful Mercier Frame with Matching Chrome Fork. The previous stem was stuck in the fork to the point where I spent over 6 hours trying to get it off to no avail. But at last I got it free. I mean how could i use a carbon fork on a lugged fork? Especially a frame that came with a matching chrome fork.
I have a full tiagra drivetrain
FSA External BB (Never had this)
Campy Brakes (Bc the tiara ones are ugly)
speed play frogs
generic headset (Campy one was done,might put it on at a later date)
Civia bars (Bryant 44cm)
Nitto Technomic Stem, 110
Avocet O2 Ti saddle
Bontrager Race Lite Wheels

The Cliff Shrubb. No model cause he did all custom frames. Late 70's to early mid 80's based on rear d step down ferrule.

Working on restoring the paint.

Now I just have figure out how to keep water out of the cable guide.

8-speed IGH Fuji
 
Though not especially C$V (except for frame, fenders, headset, and pedals), I thought some here might like to see this bike. I built it up from a bare 1980s (?) Fuji Berkely Frame. I'm really enjoying the bike now and putting some miles on it!
