I wanted to get a little input from anyone that checks in. It's been a while. While I'm actually itching to get this done and completed, I'm in no rush.
So I was thinking about lining the lugs with white and any pf the pantographing on the frame maybe lining in black to match the signature decal on the top tube, or maybe white like the lug lining. I'm curious about any thoughts on this idea. lining etc.

Amazing results! Yes, please share which shop did the plating.

I wouldn't line the lugs on this frame, but filling in the cutouts might look nice.

I wouldnít line the lugs, but definitely fill the Guerciotti script. I would leave the cutouts as is, but filling those wouldnít look bad either...just not what I would do. Thatís an awesome frame, I love the Air tubeset. I had an Air tube Somec, with all the aero internal cabling, it was a nice riding bike.

My opinion only: panto in dark red or dark blue. No lug lining.

Panto in black looks to be the winner and I like.
Cant wait to see the build and ride.
Do you have a groupo to picture before buildup?
What wheels?

So Iíve had everything ready to go but havenít had any time. One bad thing about SoCal. Thereís never a bad day to not ride. That being said I took a face plant on the cyclocross bike yesterday so I have all the time in the world for the next few days.
Here it is, ready to build.







Installing the headset.







Then the forks.







Seat post.







Put the handle bars on just for the picture.




Tomorrow I install a wall rack then complete the build.

Expect an exceptional assembly!

Minor question. Are you concerned about the radial pattern on the front wheel with the low flange hub? When I shared my purchase of a Campagnolo wheel set, I was warned that the hub was not to be used with radial lacing.
Omega Strada Hardox V Chorus Front 32_01 on Flickr

The material on your flange looks less than mine.

Those are Campy hubs. I bought that way so I'm going with it for now. Good observation though. I look into it more.

Little more done today. By the way Frame, Fork, Head Set and Seat post -5.8 lbs.

Installed shifters, thread the cables, installed front and rear derailleurs. Hung the wheels for looks.









Getting to know the rest of the family.

So I've been plugging away. I've hit a couple snags. One is finding a 15m socket that fits in the crank arm to secure the cranks. One of my brake books isn't correct for wheel rotation so I need to source one and finally the front brake lands pretty low on the rim so I need to do some tweaking there.

This one of the nicest bikes I've ever seen. This would be pretty much my dream build, but in a pista model.

I think a nice leather bar wrap would look and ride great. Maybe Brooks?

Mostly done. I need to re-wrap the bars. It's not a tight wrap at all. Clean up the finger prints and take a few pictures. The maiden voyage was great.




Contrast in philosophy.

The final result looks great! Btw, I note that you have a Cinelli 1R - and it seems to have a 1 to 2 degree rise? I've never seen that before.

Looking forward to a ride report soon
