    Bob Jackson Super Legend is on the road

    Its been a long time coming and gathering parts but its on the road now. Its not a super flashy bike but its a rider.

    Bod Jackson Super Legend frame 57x57
    Campagnolo Super Record headset
    Campagnolo Record group
    Campagnolo Record 9 speed ergos converted to 8 speed
    Phil bottom bracket
    Cinneli bars and stem
    Brooks Swift Ti seat
    Mavic open pros with Campagnolo Daytona hubs
    Campagnolo Cobalto Calipers

    I am still waiting on parts, mainly Campy skewers and new crank bolts with washers. I also plan on changing out the tires and maybe the bar tape color once I get some more miles on it. The seatpost is also gonna be swapped at some point also.

    That's a very well thought out build, I really like it! I'm looking forward to my own Bob Jackson build coming up real soon, with all these threads lately I'm very inspired.

    Very, VERY nice! A Bob Jackson just joined my stable not long ago and I really like the way it rides... a lot. I'm anxious to hear your thoughts about the ride quality. I really love those chromed curly lugs on yours!

    What's the theory behind the curvy chain stays?

    Beautiful build! The orange, black and chrome just pop out at you, and the build list is well thought out.

    awesome.

    imo, it would be even better with an orange/black cross handlebar wrap.

    I thought this bike was TO DIE FOR until you said that it needed new crank bolts with washers... Who would want it now?

    Curly stays and Record components - but it's not flashy, it's a rider. Then you better be riding it.

    It's Vibrant stays, not curly awesome bike. Really, are those record arms the most beautiful ever produced? I certainly think so.
    Pass the Dutchie on the non-drive side.
    Rather a 100$ bike with 1000$ wheels than a 1000$ bike with 100$ wheels.
