    Not too bad, at least they aren't "Antlers"! Headset....CLUNKY....but it IS what it is. All together, it works pretty well together, but definitely a MODERN look to it. The shape of the bars does clash a bit with "Old School" but I suppose they are more comfy on the hands. Looks like a sweet ride to me....but MAY get kicked out of the C&V area! :-O

    You bad, bad man. That's a great way to evangelize the carbon fibre crowd, so prepare for the attention it's going to recieve.

    The seat post and stem are a little much but other than that it looks good to me.

    It's not like you turned it into a fixie!

    I just dressed a Colnago Neuvo Mexico in black and carbon fiber

    For what it's worth, ergo bend bars came about in the 80s and predate a good number of "c&v" frames.

    Yet another perfect build ruined by the owner failing to align the tire labels with the valve stems.

    I consider perpendicular acceptable (and standard with some tubulars)

    Heretic.
    People are broad-minded. They'll accept the fact that a person can be an alcoholic, a dope fiend, a wife beater and even a newspaperman, but if a man doesn't drive, there's something wrong with him.

    Nice hot rod you have there!

    As long as you ride the tires off her, it's all good by me.

    Red, Italian and Campy.

    It's all there!

    What wheelset did you go with?

    Belongs somewhere else besides the C&V forum, perhaps, but that doesn't stop a third of the posts here. Nice bike.

    I agree, it is all there.
    Very nice ride.
    If you riding it, that is all that counts.

    A mid 80's steel, lugged De Rosa with Record 8s doesn't belong here?

    The stem should be quill, but apart from that, it belongs.

    Agreed.

    This matter is very simple.

    If the post doesn't interest me, I simply don't read it.

    +1! My view is the frame and fork with original paint and decals accounts for 51% of a bikes identity. That's the heart and soul of a bike.

    Sorry about that, it was kinda late last night when I mounted them.

    The headset (early C Record) looks clunky because it and the bottle cages (Blackburn) are the only C&V components, unless the 9spd Record Ti group is considered C&V.

    The wheels are NOS '10 Ksyrium Elites.

    I have a Tommasini that is fully C&V, and that's enough for me. While I love vintage steel for comfort and soul, i don't care for skinny noodly bars and stems, heavy and noodly vintage wheels, or downtube shifters that cause butt-clenching moments while descending. This is maybe my main ride, hence the modern components on the vintage frameset. Thanks for both the kind words and the damnation

    Sweet bike! I personally think the stem in particular is kinda ugly and bulky on that frame(should be on some thick, pointy tubed carbon something-or-other frame) and I'd change out the post for something in silver to match a silver vintage stem, but that's just being picky. It's a really nice bike. Maybe it's because I'm younger than most here, but I love a modern drive-train on a nice vintage frame. Best of both worlds.

    fantastic bike and build. Though the seatpost is a little iffy, but it still looks like a million bucks. Congratulations on the build and many happy miles to you, sir.

    Rather a 100$ bike with 1000$ wheels than a 1000$ bike with 100$ wheels.

    Well, actually the chain needs to be on the big ring for a photograph, and the background should be plain white, or light colour!
