    Not clear. Do you mean built the frame too or starting with a built frame?

    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    Hmmm, this fundamental question has yet to be answered, yet we're off and running.

    I interpreted the title to mean "frame built too" . . . but apparently that's just me.

    You'll love this one then.



    Craigslist frame became a partsbin build. FD routed on the downtube, RD routed on the top tube, not a barrel adjuster in sight.

    Was very pleased with myself with the cables ended up looking like this:


    Made a good bit of coin as well as culled the bin on that one.

    How about a work in progress? Here is an '88 Cannondale Crierium with a new set of Vuelta Corsa Lite's, frameset is being painted metallic black with all black components in a Black Lightning decal set.

    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

    My 41 Translator ™ kicks in automatically now. I always read "built" as "assembled", unless I'm in the Framebuilders forum.

    I built this frame for racing a couple years after high school. Tange Prestige tubing, Henry James Lugs & fork crown. Wiegle painted it. Paint has suffered a bit in the last 30+ years, but it's hanging in there. Upgraded to a Campy 10 mish-mash.





    And my modern budget race bike (I "assembled" it, but didn't build the frame) (about $1300):



    I haven't bought a "new" bike since I was a kid.

    It's moot anyway, the bike was sold last fall to a gentleman in the Bay Area. I have a 59 with much worse, yet serviceable, paint I've picked up for myself.

    Lemond won the tour on the ADR team in 89, I think this color scheme was around for 90 and 91. Much like all the USPS liveried treks of the Armstrong years, bikes up and down the line had very similar paint. Mine was an aelle tubed frame, but there are SL and maybe even SLX tubed frames. The key to the upmarket frames is a chrome chainstay, and a chrome fork.

    Here's what it looked like [different wheels] right before I boxed it up and shipped it across the country. Veloce 9s for those keeping track.



    Had it fit me, I wouldn't have let it out of my sight.

    Even though the upper end ones had chrome I kinda like the painted to match fork on yours.

    Pulling the internally routed cables was definitely the hardest part putting together the P2.
