    No clue, have you put your finger on it yet? It's my new daily commuter bike. Custom build by Antonio Taverna of Cicli Vetta from Padova. I used the specs of my 1993 Merlin Extralight as it fits me like a glove...

    Mismatched monoplanar brakeset?
    Only 1 set of bottle cage braze-ons?
    The brake surface finish on those MA40's wearing off to raw eventually?
    The seatpost should be c record aero?
    Tan saddle & gum hoods?

    Stem is fugly, weld marks and not perfectly smooth and shapely. I hate 95% of stems though.
    Not a fan of the crank shape either. I understand the matchy matchiness of them, but never liked the shape with the extreme bow on the spider.

    But what do I know, I spray painted dura ace hubs blue :l

    Custom fillet brazed stem and seatpost to match the frameset would be awesome.

    Next time I put together a show bike I'll think about all that. This is just a purpose build daily commuter for the 22 km I have to cover twice a day: don't need two bottle holders for that, most parts are from the spare parts box, love Campagnolo especially the crankset, love raw steel, don't like tan saddles or gum hoods on a bike that will see a lot of wind and rain. Antonio Taverna did a a great job building me a cheap but custom Deda Zero-Uno frameset to the exact specs of my Merlin Extralight. Custom stem and post would triple what I spend on this bike, if not more. Wheels were fitted for the photos, I have a similar set but with already worn GP4 rims and I'm building up a set of high profile Record hubs from the spare parts box with polished low profile Campagnolo Omegas.

    Thanks! Tires are Continental Giro tubulars. Far from sophisticated but they roll quite nice, are durable and very puncture resistant, which is basically all I'm looking for when commuting. The bottle holder is for a bottle that contains a mini pump and a can of Vittoria Pit-Stop sealant, over the past couple of years that proved to be all I need for puncture repair.

    Spring/summer build that deserves newer wheels, but I'm keeping these because Ellipse seems like the only alternative and that's out of budget at the moment. Also the Gipiemmes are sturdy enough for street riding and actually lighter than they look.

    This is the 'post your pics' thread not the 'what don't you like?' thread.

    This one is mine

    I still need to change out the chainring for something a bit more classic looking (velosolo,) put a brake on her, and either brown leather tape or a set of gropes on her, but I love her. She's my Grey Geisha. I also put a champagne cork on her, so I never lose my pop. I hope to one day live in an area with a velodro

    I have two responses for you.

    One's nice:
    "Hi,

    "Thanks for checking up on me. This is not the complete lock setup. At All. I also have a Kryptonite New York U-Lock for the rear tire, a saddle lock, and an auxiliary thick cable lock going through both wheels. This is just a "photo shoot" in my secured building. I didn't want to take a picture with all the locks, but had started locking up my bike and was too lazy to undue the big fat chain.

    "Once again, I do want to thank you for reminding me to not get complacent, but this is most certainly not the case here, as I usually have the most (and best quality) locks of any bike within the vicinity of where I lock up."

    and the second one is this:

    I'm not sure why you felt the need to use "face palm" as though you were mocking me. You are not where I am, have not the knowledge of my surroundings, nor the knowledge of which locks I own and use on a daily basis. Quite frankly, I find your impulse control to be lacking and your sense of community to be downright embarrassing. This is an online community for us to share and grow, and for you to get aggressive with the "new guy" is -- for lack of a better word -- childish.

    I want it to be made known that I am not trying to be defensive here, at all. I hope this serves as a reminder for you to brush up on your friendly and welcoming nature as an (I assume) moderator and also for proper etiquette.

    You know what, I was aggressive and that was wrong. I'm quite defensive about locking up my bike because I take it seriously. I should not have gotten pissed because I don't know this dude and I don't know if he was being sarcastic. So for that, I apologize, Leukybear. So, I was wrong and I'm sorry.

    additionally, as a clarification point: I used the chain to steady the bike so it wouldn't fall over.

    No need to be sorry, we just got off on the wrong foot, I should've taken a better look at the pictures especially when the black shackle of a u lock blends in so well in the cluttered part of a photo for a man going into his 18th hour of being awake.

    As far as sarcasm goes, *scribbles down that this serves as a reminder for you to brush up on your friendly and welcoming nature as an (I assume) moderator and also for proper etiquette in crayon on his handy dandy official mod coloring book*

    Thanks, I really appreciate it. Very class of you to bury the hatchet. Next time you're in Honolulu, let me know and I'll buy you a pint.

    Additionally, that other bike isn't mine. It's some dude's that also lives in my building.
