The old track, hand built korean frame with nagasawa lugs and hodgepodge build.
The old road rig. Mostly Italian, minus the fork/ cages/ wheels. Not staged properly
Made the leap to carbon, maybe I'll post it here if it looks good when I'm finished.

Decided that rather than just try and swap out my 105 shifters with a newer set to route cable into bar which turns out does need the newer brakes due to the pull, I may as well use this opportunity to go full ultegra 6800, cosmetically though, here's what the new tape, lower stem and matching cages will look like (via sloppy photoshop). Hope this will be an improvement, but I'm on the fence about removing wheel decals. Bike should be back in my hands by Saturday so I can post a proper shot...
I like it with the wheel stickers myself!! )
I'd vote no wheel stickers. Those stickers make the bike to "loud" and they take away from the frame.
Also, if I can't sell my 105 gruppo, may keep to put on a cyclocross frame, still have the old bar and the aksium wheels from this bike, hmm another bike for my collection, n+1 right. A giant TCX frame can be had pretty cheap or even a Ridley or caadx something like that. I feel a next project coming on.

Bend the knees, watch the trees ... 5 $ please .
I look back at those pics and thank god I upgraded a few things since then... god was that crank ugly.
Actually, I was the seller. I no longer have both of those bikes. Sold the corex on eBay 2-3 years ago. Currently riding a tcr advanved.
Got it back early. Hopefully much much better than before..
Thanks for all your advice guys. Now I can save for a new cyclocross frame to put the old 105 gruppo, aksium rims and drop bar on. Nothing wrong with getting an extra bike out of all this trouble....

Nicely done Gus! That was a quick turn. Bike looks way better!!
WTF, did you just go out and spend 800 bucks to please internet people? I'm in awe.
