    ReBuild Pics

    Here are the pics from the rebuild:
    The bike on the rack ready to be stripped:


    Here it is naked as a Jaybird:


    And here is what will go back on it:


    Here is a closeup of the Ultratorque crankset - very different design:


    And here it is - complete and ready to ride:


    The new compact double is really nice - good combination with the 11/25 cassett.

    That would be sweet but I have my eye on N+1 and if I get what I am looking for, I'll be hunting a set of vintage record components. I just love a classic Columbus steel bike. I may have to sell the Tarmac though - but it's only plastic.

    Not classic, but I'm a fan of Columbus steel too.

    Looks like a classic to me - I would charish that hunk of steel if it were mine. I would really like a beauty like that one but I tend to go after the small builders as many time people just don't know what they have and will let them go for a song. I picked my frame up in the mid 90's for $150.

    I don't know that builder. By the lugs and stays, you can tell its a real nice frame.

    Beautiful re-build. Did you have to cold set the chainstays, or did the new wheel drop right in?

    Losing that gigantic dork disk was worth the upgrade.

    Nice job.
    I think it might be time for a new saddle.

    Info on the bar-end mirror, please.

    Odd how carbon cranks just don't photograph well.

    Glad to see you ditched the oversize dork disc.

    The bike was built with a 130mm spread so it went right in - I upgraded from a 9 to a 10.

    That is probably the largest dork disk I have ever seen. Someone should do a study regarding fashions in dork disks - how they bigger and smaller and then go away. Do you think there's a fashion correlation between the size of dork disks and the length of NBA players' shorts?

    sounds like a marketing opportunity! dork disks with slots for spoke cards, clothes pins and playing cards, or optical illusions, la Speedblends:

    (got six 700x27 -[yes 27!] Speedblends from Target.com for $19 each a few years ago - they're rebadged Japanese-manufactured Panaracers!)
