I'm sorry I had to resort to threats to get you to finish it, but it does look good!

psuaero 12-12-10 05:47 PM

Awesome job... I bet you can't wait for some nice spring like weather to enjoy it.

Velo Gator 12-12-10 05:59 PM

My OCD cannot overlook the fact that the paint on the fork and headtube do not match exactly.

I have no idea, when I ride it in a month or two I'll be sure to post a ride report.

there is nothing wrong with that. my "everyday" record equipped bike has a centaur cassette and veloce chain. my "good" bike has a record chain and cassette. no reason to expose expensive wearable parts to excessive miles and poor weather (especially when the cheap stuff functions the same)


edit:

i should also mention, i am a traditionalist when it comes to italian frames but if your not going campy, you just as well hit it out of the park with fsa, sram, raceface, planetx, and kmc.

Great build!

Heavy. :(

It is around 16.5 lbs right now. I hope to get it down to below 16 which I think is decent with the 50mm clinchers and the SRAM Quarq crankset.

rjones28 12-12-10 07:28 PM

Very nice. I see you went with the snow camo bar tape.

mzeffex 12-12-10 07:30 PM

One of the hottest bikes I've seen. Period.

Yep, couldn't pass up the snow camo tape. It's a very limited edition tape. :D
