Always love seeing this one, doc. Just aesthetically, tho, have you ever thought of getting a stem that's parallel to the top tube?

Great updates, Chris! You'll need to take a few independent "garage door" shots of each so we can get a nice clear view of your handiwork.

I like the Specialized saddles. Are those leather?

Did a standard 60mile-ish route this weekend over varied terrain. The Peloton felt more composed (but not less responsive) and somewhat stiffer than the Circuit especially in the rear triangle/bb. ...

Thanks, Chris, you're an inspiration to Peloton owners everywhere! Aesthetically SRAM really does it for me, esp now that the Rival chainrings are anodized matte black. The ease of shifting up from...

Finally! 99.99% finished. I just need a respectable seat post binder bolt. Anyone know what size/standard it is? Both Tempo and Circuit's Sugino bolts did not fit and neither did a Campy one.

I'm close to finishing up the vintage/sti peloton build. Just have to add the wheels, tune up the derailleurs and brakes, add the new Columbus sticker and wax the sucker down. Pics soon... :)

Agreed!

Ober, I have a 95mm black cinelli xa stem if you want to try it out. You'll need a matching cinelli bar with a 26.4 clamp section or a standard 26mm with a shim.

I had a chance to see a few DX4000 on the road recently and they specifically said "hand made" or "hand built" (I forget the exact wording).
