    non-fixie, good for you.

    The world would be a much duller place if we all thought alike - and the Internet would be a much poorer place if C&V didnīt exist for civilized discussion and debate!

    Repechage, thanks for posting.

    Thereīs a lot of wisdom in those wrinkles.

    Trotsky, I picked up the Brooks ridiculously cheaply so am going to break it in and see how I get on with it.

    Dave, without wishing to get into the whole debate - and I have absolutley nothing against tubs - I think if you tried a modern clincher tyre, something like a Continental Grand Prix 4000s, with...

    Yep, that's what I've cabled my Merckx with, and they are an absolute revelation.

    Nice work - now wrap the bars & ride, weather permitting!

    Interesting - I see your point!
    I just have zero interest in vintage componentry. For me it's all about the ride, and an expertly made Belgian steel frame, in my size, previously owned by an...

    Good to know, zazenach, I'll keep a close eye on the Merckx cables, although I would imagine that teflon flaking off would result in a pretty instant degredation in shifting quality.

    That Wraith is an absolutely splendid build, Robbie!

    the sloping top tube seems to be pretty standard these days. Rob English did some pretty trick work on the black frame, with integrated cable...

    +1, although I have enjoyed riding my Velo Cheapo entry with its DT shifters over the last month or two.

    one important point is that even cheap modern components perform absolutely superbly....

    Looks like some substantial savings are to be made on the front end!

    I think Iīll concentrate on getting some weight off the rider first!

    If I could find a pantographed Eddy Merckx carbon 1" fork I would!

    The fork weight isnīt too bad, only 760 grams. What would a superlight exotic 1" carbon fork come in at? Easton EC90sl at 360...

    Absolutely.

    I think it's pretty feasible to build up a vintage SLX frame to approach the current the UCI weight limit, without having to go too mental on parts.

    Right.

    Build finished. My Lumix bridge camera has decided it wants to stop fucussing correctly so apologies for the crappy photos. For some reason it worked a bit better with the washing machine...

    Lovely build there James, well done. 1x10 has a lot going for it.

    Rgver, that Gitane is a thing of beauty.

    by the way I think miles pedalled through the rain should count double, and miles on snow (! Hardcore!) triple.
