    What i'm considering for my latest build. Discuss.

    So last time my Raleigh rep came in I just so happened to think to ask him about the Macaframa frame sets. He just so happened to have 2 left in my size so I went ahead and ordered one. I plan to use some parts I already have and pick up some new stuff, but here's what I'm thinking for parts

    7600 Dura ace hubs
    Velocity aeroheads
    wheelsmith double butted spokes
    alloy nipples
    7710 Dura ace crank setup, matching BB and chainring
    Thomson elite stem
    I've got a Thomson post for now, I'm also considering picking up something carbon with 0 setback
    Nitto ADB-X bars
    Kmc chain
    Look keo carbon pedals, (I need to buy new shoes too)
    I've got a few saddles to choose from too

    Discuss

    I don't like (aluminum) alloy spoke nipples. The weight savings are negligible and they strip far too easily. I'd go with brass nipples, instead.

    I'd totally do that if i didnt already have it laced 3x. I have the hubs laced to deep Vs now. I wanna rebuild them with the aeroheads and butted spokes. They're 3x rear, radial front now. Both 32h. If i had fresh hubs id go 28h front and do the rear 32h 3x drive, radial non drive. That would be sweet.

    That could also happen. I'm sure we all know what those hubs look like, silver spokes, black nipples, black rims. I could do black brass. The weight savings is really gonna come from switching from deep Vs to aeroheads. I've used alloy before with no issues but i know other people that break em all the time. I am a bit heavier than i care to be, you make a good point about reliability.

    My gut says that this bike is going to cost about $1,500 or more. You OK with that?

    Its only money, I'll make more. It's not gonna all happen at once. I've got another non bike related project that has priority over this. For this though I only have to buy cranks, rebuild the wheels, pedals, and some new shoes. The crank setup will cost the most. No biggie, it'll be worth it. Once i get my tax return i'm hoping to make quick work of the other project. Be rolling this bike by summer.

    I've had the bars a while now. I think i paid about 120 for them new. I'm pretty sure I even have the plastic they came in still too.

    I think the ADBX bars look freaking awesome.


    ...but probably suck to ride being that the only hand position is in the deep drops.



    Don't get me wrong, I've always had a thing for those bars. But, there is a reason you don't see them around. Maybe look for or ask for a review from someone who has actually ridden them.

    I don't own any dura ace chainrings, and I'm the first guy to throw money at a bike. They are just as expensive as campy.

    Here is that frame with ABDX already built:

    I love my Velocity Aeros. I'm guessing that this is fulfilling a track/racing niche for you, given the frameset you bought. But my Aeros put up with a lot of rough bumps and seldom need to be trued.

    I doubt you'll find potholes on the track. Nevertheless, love the Aeros.
    Go bike yourself.

    I will take a look around. I have the papers that come with the hubs and they mention it a few times and say it voids the warranty.

    This has been discussed before, and although Shimano discourages radial lacing, there are no reported cases of failure in normal use of radially laced front wheels with Dura Ace HF track hubs.

    O wow.... I just happen to have a somewhat new set laced to open pros with cx rays, with a radial front, whoever at my LBS who built it completely disregarded the papers... I had these built up over winter for a way lighter wheelset; to my usual b43's
