    The new addition to my stable!

    In my endless quest for a new commuter I came across this NOS Ti road frame, fork and headset for a song. She has what I think are some nice welds. I never thought I could afford I Ti bike. How could I say no? I've finaly gotten her built up.

    NOS Ti frame of unknown orgin. Possibly Russian. 1024 stamped on the dropout.
    NOS Mavic Helium rear wheel and hub
    Mavic MA3 front rim
    Edco Champion front hub
    NOS DA RD
    105 FD
    Used Campy Record Crank
    NOS 9 speed DA cassette
    Used Ultragra pedals
    Used Ultergra barend shifters
    NOS Campy seat post
    Used Campy Record brakes
    Used Forma bars
    Used SLR levers

    The used stuff I had mostly lying around, with the exception of the crank and brakes. I think I'm going to put a Brooks b17 on her as well. How does she look? Man, I can't wait to go out and ride!

    That's awesome! It is so much fun building up a new frameset with stuff you already have laying around. I have a bunch of shoeboxes full of extra parts that I can't wait to use. I plan to do the same as you- build up a commuter style bike even though I cant commute to work. Hope you enjoy!
