The groupset I bought as a bargain was a bit more work to get ride worthy...plus I am still trying to identify the rimset/wheels I picked up...it was a snowball thing.
Well good luck with it and keep at it. We've all had those projects that just seemed to grow and grow.

Took it out today for the first test ride. I've got to admit that for once I was "scared" to ride one of my bikes. This one is just so nice and beautiful.

Seatpost slipped on me during the ride. I always have the right wrench with me but this bike does not use a keyed binder bolt so with only one wrench I couldn't fix it. Felt good under me before it slipped and feels nice and light when I am out of the saddle. It also felt really good while in the drops before the seatpost slipped.

I'll need at least one more ride with this properly adjusted to judge on how it really rides.



Saddle was a good inch and a half lower than it should have been by the time I grabbed this quick shot.

Wow, it looks to be straight off the showroom floor. Such a pity the seatpost slipped on the maiden ride. I hope the seatpost wasn't marred. Such a well put together bike and I can imagine it will be a brilliant ride.
