Latest Build

I bought this frameset a few months ago from a fellow forum member and just recently started building it. It's mostly Shimano 600 tri-color components with 105 front derailleur and Crank. I changed out the SG chain rings for Biopace rings. I thought about going with white drop bar tape, white wall tires, white cable housings, and maybe a white saddle, but this set of tires came on a parts bike that and they're in great shape. I'm not sure if the white will go with these tires, although they do have a white relfective line on them.

I apologize, the pictures got a little out of order in the end.

That is really pretty, and I like the entire thing.
I have a 600AX seat post if you want to match that stem.

[MENTION=4750]Archangel[/MENTION], why do I get the feeling you are in cahoots with Miguel.

Oh, and nice frame/build all the way around too.

Super Nice as the GCN guys would say! I want one of those graduated seat posts for all my bikes.

I actually think I'm going to be replacing the stem in the future. This one came off a taller bike and might be a bit too long.

Hehe. That's who I got it from. He has a nice collection of bikes.

The bike is pretty much done except for the temporary saddle, pedals, and Shimano 105 shifters. I ordered a set of Shimano 600 shifters but they weren't working properly so I installed the 6 speed 105's with a 7 speed freewheel. I couldn't get them to shift properly to the 7th gear without it messing up the other gears, so I just turned in the limit screw to keep at at 6 speeds. Does anyone have a set of 600 tri-color shifters they'd be willing to sell? I'd take 6400 or 6401 DT shifters, 600 brifters, or 600 bar-end shifters.

Nice build! The white bar tape and cable housing works great with that frame. What saddle are you going with?

I might go with a white Selle SMP saddle. I have an SMP extra on my newer road bike and it's the most comfortable saddle I've had so far.
