    Last week I finally gave up on finding a 54cm TCR SLR. I know it's a stiff frame, does it liquify your insides?

If it wasn't a bike that I'd be in traffic with frequently, I wouldn't bother with 'em.
    Auckland traffic is far from the worst in the world. But, even here, I would value inline levers if I was commuting on a regular basis. Fingers wrapped around the outside of the hoods or the drops makes them the first point of contact. I would much prefer having something between my hand and the car. I was out riding with a friend last weekend who runs bar ends on his MTB commuter rig for no other purpose than as urban Bash Guards.

    A most serious tire mounting faux pas. If you were to mount them identincally, you would be able to keep the valve stems align in either the upper or lower position and read both Schwalbe and the model in upright script. tsk, tsk, (suck in through teeth)

    It looks tall 61cm or 63cm? If it were shorter it would be warmer. Any chance of a surgical shortening in your future?

    And it shows. But, it does present well for such a tall frame. You've done an excellent job of disguising the giant.

    99.9% of the time it is.

    Only if you're trying to hide in a crowd does it have drawbacks.

    Seatpost looks a little on the short side. It might shift a bit smoother with a little more cable on the RD end. I would also suggest the rear brake cable goes behind the front cable at the bars. Otherwise, nice retro build.

    How dare you?! Well, the seat post may look short by modern standards, but this is from the days when a fist full of post was the norm. Plus, it's what my short-legged, long-torso'd body requires. The cable is a NOS Campagnolo rear derailleur cable, pre-cut at the factory to the optimal length. Campagnolo's first ever slant parallelogram paired Simplex retroflection levers = shifting perfection. If I were to route the rear brake cable behind the front it would get bunched up when I turn left. Notwithstanding the fact the cable started to creep forward around the seat cluster in the photos, both cables take a pretty natural curve, IMHO.

    Btw, this was my race bike as a teenager.
