Timo, before you even spout off anything about my TT bars not being cross legal ... that depends if its an amateur race / accepted locally ... and also I do have my drop bars that I'm prepping ... On my drops I will be using tektro cross top levers w/ shimano exage levers.
For now... here are a few pics of the almost final bike. Just need to put the FD on and chain and cut the excess wires.
I listened to my gf and left the paint job in so-so quality for now (seeing as Montreal thieves are all arseh*les)
After stripping the paint and viewing the parts pre-installed on
After the 2nd coat of rattle can...
3rd coat of paint and drying between coats...
I got a bit of house cleaning / stuff to do so I'll prolly post the in between photos of while I was building this bike either tomorrow or monday... I'm off to a wedding this weekend. Cheers !
Shimano 105 groupo minus the rear caliper which is a long reach exage caliper.
Specialized mtb SPD pedals
Shimano Ultegra 600 downtube shifters / will be upgrading to kelly take-offs
Nashbar TT bar with tektro r4.0 reverse TT levers
Ritchey SpeedMax Pro Comp tires 700x35c (yes I barely have clearance thats why I have the exage caliper on the back)
Veluta Typhoon rims
Nashbar camo cork handlebar tape.
Also I am giving away my sugino 172.5 50t crank which needs new pedals and a good cleaning its a square bolt crank, for either local pickup or just pay the delivery charges... PM me
