I want those wheels, man.
Always love seeing this one, doc. Just aesthetically, tho, have you ever thought of getting a stem that's parallel to the top tube?
Yeah, the hairnet thing is silly.
4 years? 2 decades is a pretty long time!
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. ...
:D I justify the gaudy gold plating on rolls saddles with the tiny bit of gold on the columbus stickers on my bike. Whatever works man!
Damn, one day one of you guys are going to make me snap and build up a Centurion frame. Nice build! Wheels are definitely the odd man out, but screw it, if they ride well, they ride well.
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...
Not yet, sir, but he'll probably catch wind of it on the Peloton thread eventually... ;)
Honestly, can't say I feel much difference between this and the Circuit, but I haven't raced on it yet. ...
Posted in the Peloton thread, but wanted to get it into this one as well because who doesn't want to show off their hard work!
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... :)
Sheldon likes it!
I use the original biopace that came on the 105 cranks on my commuter. To prevent sweating I don't spin on this bike and feel like...
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.
Ober, looking good. Didn't realize you'd be using anything other than drop bars!
The paint on the Look is stunningly "pro" though. Aside from any differences in geometry and handling is the 753 frame stiffer? I assume you'd notice more since you're a taller/larger rider.
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).
So...there's a pretty good chance that these Pelotons...
A case for hand built: Panasonic's high end Team series were all hand made and had very similar specs down to the Columbus tubes for frames and forks. The only thing I haven't been able to match up...
Niiiice, how are the bars working out for you? I like that these modern bars combined with the brifter hoods essentially make for a longer stem. This particular one looks pretty good even though...
Absolutely tops. I think I may have to tear apart my current commuter for one JUST LIKE THIS.
A quick look through evilbay made me very confused. I need to do some research on vintage mtbs on sizing, components, and designs...
Also, what seems like high end stuff seems pretty dag cheap.
This thread is Pure Evil.
I want one. Bad.
Thanks, and I love this thread. So many amazing builds here. Plus's Bottecchia is as classy as it gets as far as bicycle aesthetics go.
