    What is your next build ?

    Do you have any new builds still in the planning stages ? Is it somehow unique or different from what you now have or is it a modern interpretation of some classic theme ? What are the constraints on it such as budget, time frame for completion and minimum quality of the parts ? How will it be used and how practical must it be ?

    Anyway, I'd like anyone interested to share your planned builds in this thread. I'll kick it off with mine:

    Theme: Modern interpretation of my vintage Schwinn Paramount P14 track bike, but suitable for street use.

    Constraints: Total cost under $2000 and completion by Christmas 2013.

    Parts list: Soma Rush white frame with threaded chrome fork and Tange Levin chrome headset, Dura Ace 7600 fix/fix HF track hubs 32 hole with Mavic Open pro silver rims (Velomine), IRD Defiant cranks and QB55 BB, Whipperman Whitestar silver chain 1/8", EAI Deluxe track cog 1/8" x 17T, MKS Royal Nuevo pedals, MKS clips, Toshi Deluxe single straps, Nitto Classic Road handlebar with white bar tape, Nitto Pearl quill stem, Nitto Dynamic 626 seatpost, Selle Italia Flite 1990 saddle, Tektro R540 silver front brake caliper and Dia Compe Gran Compe Shot silver brake lever.

    Items TBD: Tires

    Something vintage, most likely a Raleigh.

    I'm very tempted to buy this (although it's been refinished) but can't realistically spend the money on it before we move:

    merckx corsa 01 ideally in the 7-11 colors or the green/black chevrons

    new full athena group in all silver alloy (none of that eps bs)

    tb-14s 2x to white t11 hubs

    campy seatpost

    unsure about stem/bars

    probably jack brown rubbers if they can fit

    constraints: need $$ and i dont got any.

    /edit: just realized a bike needs a seat and pedals, so i gotta figure those out too

    City/pub bike.

    Under 500$
    Older steel frame, downtube shifters
    permanent full fenders (though, I'll go minimalist like the Krud Catchers)
    optional front rack
    priest bars

    I was going to pick up a friend's late 80's c'dale criterium, but he backed out and wants to keep it. Would have been 100$ for everything but saddle/pedals. Lame.

    The hunt continues. Ideally I would find something that had frame, fork and drivetrain/shiftybits only in size ~53/54.
    Attack in the feeling because it says I'll win absolutely.

    A certain baby blueish/grey road bike that you know of that I'm still hunting out parts for. Nothing defines "sooo aeroooo" as vintage aero.

    Crossmuter built by a co-worker fresh from the Yamaguchi course.

    Steel filet-brazed frame
    still deciding on 700c or 26" wheels
    eyelets for fenders/racks/toddler seat
    canti brakes
    thinking black 105, entertaining shimergo
    still deciding on color scheme, thinking of referencing the grey/blue Tercel 4WD wagon i learned to drive in.

    Jandro - if I was on your coast, I'd totally sell you this. I will be in SF for a day in July though, so maybe?

    I'm taking my single speed Trek and doing a complete tear down & re-build with different parts, and setting it up as a S24O touring machine for exploring Florida. It should be done by mid-summer.

    I'm parting out three bikes to fund my next and probably last build for a long, long time. Semi-custom fillet brazed Pedimoto low-trail 650b bike with a lot of cool features like internal dynamo wiring, internal cables, Routens-style seat stays, seat tube mounted taillight, NOS Reynolds 531 and Columbus SL tubing, custom chromed front rack and fillet brazed stem. I've managed to dump a lot of money into previous builds, but this will definitely be the most expensive. Counting parts I'll use that I already have I'll have close to $3k in it. Do NOT tell my wife that.

    It's currently being painted a high gloss British Racing Green with gold pin-striping.

    There are some things I haven't settled on yet, but here's what I'm thinking now.

    • Stronglight 49d with 48/33 TA rings
    • Honjo fluted fenders
    • King or Cane Creek 110 headset
    • Pacenti PL23
    • White Industries T11 polished rear 32h
    • SON Deluxe 32h
    • B&M Luxos U headlight
    • Kimura seat tube tail light
    • Extra Legere Hetres
    • Huret Jubilee FD
    • Dura Ace 7800 RD
    • Dura Ace 10s DT shifters
    • Berthoud decaleur and GB28 bag
    • VO Randonneur bar
    • Brooks Alp d'Huez brown saddle

    my next bike will be a cool steel bike like a serotta or landshark

    or it will be a touring bike

    completely different, but both should be fun.

    currently building up my caad10 frame. full SRAM force, thomson bits, white industries laced to h plus sons or kinlins. hopefully complete by this fall/end of summer

    next, i'd like to get some kind of cross bike, or maybe something steel

    but probably above all, i need some kind of beater to keep the nice bikes nice... an old schwinn or trek?

    everybody needs a beater.

    I'd buy that 1x8 in a heartbeat if it fit me/had the money.

    Have been doing some tweaking... a new rear wheel is in the works so I have the option of running a full gear range instead of the three speed and the drop bars solve a lot of issues i have been having with my back and the more upright position.

    Putting the M in Monster Cross... heh heh heh

    No immediate plans, but unless one of my current rides dies, my next build will be a drop bar folder.

    over here i want 2 bieks:

    1) This one is easy:

    To build up my '03 KHS flite 100 (currently siting as frame/fork/headset/crank/BB in my parents garage) with risers, double straps and a low gear for short cruises and errands around my apt


    2) This one is a tough call:

    A) 1x9 29" xc style MTB with a steel or Ti frame, disk brakes and XT/XTR bits on it , or

    B) 10sp steel or Ti road bike with shimano ultegra 6600, an easton carbon fork, new wheels (kinlin xr-300 custom build) and whatever I have lying around to finish up the build

    I can't justify buuilding both right now. I really want a nicer training bike. The one I have now is great, but i's just so heavy, slow and unresponsive. I know speed doesn't really matter in my daily training, but I ride enough and hard enough to deserve something thats a little snappier then this beast:



    ... which is a great bike, it's just a little too sluggish for me. I want something that is just as durable and reliable, but sharper handling and lighter to train on. I'll likely leave it permanently at my parents house so I always have a bike there when I visit.

    On the flip side, the MTB would clearly be a lot more fun (so I didn't have to borrow one everytime I ride MTB). Option A would probably increase the overall quality of my life as a cyclist a little more (given how much more it would get ridden), but option B would present me with more opportunity to have fun, try new things and be social with people I don't ride with a lot. Hmmmmm.

    I'm building up a salsa casseroll frameset I have had lying around now for a few years. I bought it because I wanted a long distance endurance bike. I've been moving around a lot the last few years so I haven't had time to build it up. I pretty much have the parts groups now and I'll build it up over the next week. Nothing crazy in terms of parts but it will be a nice bike.
