Finished Steel Build

I got this Waterford frame used a few months ago and have finally finished the build. I had it on the trainer for a few days to get the fit dialed in and got it out on the road last Thursday before snow hit here again.

Nice. I ride a steel Guru and like it a lot. Your bike has a nice clean look to it. Congrats.

Looks very nice. Good job.

Just wondering about those cable stops for the shift cables...right at the top of the down tube and head tube. Is that where they were, or did you put them there?

You should put up some pics of that bike from different angles, it is a stunner.

Thanks, I've been a member of the steel club for over 40 years, I got my first multi-speed bike in "71" and a Raleigh Pro in "73".

Thanks, I thought is turned out pretty good too. I took it out on a couple rides and it feels real smooth and that goes for the new Ultegra too.

Then we began our real cycling journey at the same time, my first "10-speed" as they were called then, came in June 1971. It was a very good year, as old blue eyes frequently crooned.....

I started a couple years later with a Panasonic DX2000....standard crank w/23 climbing cog. Over weight and out of shape...couldn't understand why I couldn't go up a hill.

Thanks for posting -- looks great, and I bet you'll love the ride when you finish dialing it in.

That's the only kind of pump I use, as well. (Same brand and model, apparently -- Zefal XP-X.)
