I'll likely try 1/8" again if I can ever get a true 42mm chainline on my crank and on a true track bike but I see no disadvantages with running 3/32" currently.

Decathlon 'Speeder' that originally had Sachs parts with Wolber GTX2 rims.

Not yet a bike but should be built up for Easter. The frame is Vitus GTI and could be the UK version of the Decathlon Cobra 525. I suspect it was built by Gitane as it is very similar (but not so well finished) as my '94 SLX Gitane Leader.

A fully-refinished Olmo (also sold a few years ago)... Loved the white paint on this one; didn't love the Cromor tubing...

Picked up a white bike this month. A ~90's F. Moser Corsa

The logos are masked into the paint. Fuchsia panels with a blue net fogged over that.

As was:

Here is my Pearl White Zunow Di Picce taken this morning. She is in the shop right now being upgraded to DA 7402. I spent the latter half of last year trying different things to see what I want to do with her. I would like to see what 7400 actually looks like on the bike and how big a deal the 8sp STI functions. Aesthetically right now I prefer Superbe Pro Cranks + Superbe Pro 3100 RD/FD OR DA 7402 (8sp STI or DT) with an 8sp wheelset that runs Araya Aero tubular rims as the final build. If I end up liking the 7400 build I guess I will just have to find another Zunow to put it on . Also need to build a quality clincher wheelset to try maybe using Araya Super Aero, RT520 or Archetype rims then maybe I can form a clearer opinion on the whole clincher vs tubular thing. Will eventually also need to restore the frame paint.

It is a nice frame and vitus tubing was quality tubing
