    Yesterday I was volunteering at the bike shop and saw this Gt Outpost frame sitting in the corner. I found out that the last person just gave up on it, so instead of just letting it collect dust I bought it. It is a little small for me but nothing a longer seatpost cannot fix. It is small enough for my friend to ride [I think], so she'll like that. Its pretty fun too.

    Hmm. The chainstay says Shimano, but those look like Campy hubs. And tubulars? Interesting.

    Looks pretty small, though.

    I like the color on that. Is that a folded receipt in the spokes?

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    Yeah, tubulars. Only the front hub is a Campy and I believe the hub is either a weinman or araya. The shifting was all Shimano though, I still have to take off that sticker.

    And Fuzzbox, this is whats in the spokes:

    A little update. I was able to mod the chainstay mounted U brake [*%$#!] slightly so I wouldn't have to run a tensioner and the chain wouldn't rub the dust cap. Works!

    Indeed. The bike matches the sky.

    Hot off the stand, tonight. My daughter's new bike, built by "yours truly", on a vintage Italian Battaglin. Out with the Shimano SIS indexed 6 speed, in with a whole new 10 speed Campy group.

    Very very nice Bigbossman! And when your daughter outgrows it, perhaps you could sell it to East Hill.

    It's a B-67. Had I known I needed more setback than a modern seatpost alone could offer, I would have gotten a B-66. Either way, they're essentially the same saddle.

    Yep, that's the same model. I haven't gotten to ride it much, but it seems very comfortable and looks wonderful. I love the texture on the top.

    52, It's a bit small but there isn't any noticeable wheel/toe overlap so I don't mind. At least I can clear the toptube on this one, it was a bit tight on my old one.

    Just a little large for me then! I try not to lust after anything that's larger than a 48cm .

    I also had a choice of this one as well, IIRC it was a 48:



    But the fellow wanted a bit more for it and already had somebody lusting for it so I decided to leave it be. Components weren't a big deal for me since it was going to become a fixie anyways.

    And this was mine before the conversion:

    I'll have to do some money shots later...

    My 1955 Raleigh Lenton right after I installed the vintage Bluemel fenders (this afternoon actually).

    This is a reason to want spring to come early.

    Love the Raleigh! The fenders are perfectly British, too.
