I've previously posted this bike, but I recently built and tested the wheels on it.
My first from-scratch wheelbuild, and I was so relieved that I got the spoke lengths perfect on the first try. (LBS refused to order the Sapim spokes, so I had to go online.)

'86 Schwinn Peloton
Dura Ace 7800 drivetrain
Sante brake calipers
7900 hubs, Velocity Fusion Rims, & Sapim CX-Ray $poke$

She rides like a dream and I've been avoiding getting a second bottle cage, because she's threatening to dethrone my Felt as my primary rider. It's a glorious feeling to ride down the road knowing I built this bike (including the wheels) from nothing but parts. Only the Chris King headset was installed by my LBS.

i was in the process of trying to convert it to full hardtail MTB, but i think i might just sell it and get an actual hardtail MTB

thanks for looking

that felt with the brooks and di2 is like one big pile of wasted money. but youre happy with it, so whatever.

kandyredcoi 08-16-10 03:41 AM
