Well, things got pretty Transylvanian here, for awhile.

Franken Fredo

I've still got my Stealth wheels to try, too:

But, after a new powdercoat as a birthday present, I'm really liking the more classic look:

Fredo, restored.

Other than slick cables, cork gel bar tape, a taller stem and relocated shifters, it's pretty much as raced 45 years ago. The Phil Wood BB and Shimano vertical dropouts were new at the time. I've since spread the dropouts to 126mm, and fitted a 6-speed 14-28 freewheel, which *might* be low enough, usually. The Brooks Pro is currently receiving The Treatment (R), meanwhile I'm riding a Selle SMP TRK.
