Although its SS, I built up my first SS to fit and ride similar to my road bikes; minus the geared drivetrain of course.

These aren't quite priced to resell and nearly all sizes are readily available.

The 28s are a bit cheaper than 25s at the moment.

That's not a bad price. My sidewalls are the darker brown color. If my next set of tires looks like the ones in the link you sent me, I might change my saddle to the Syncros Belcarra tan saddle, and try to get matching bar tape... just for fun.

However, I spoke too soon... it looks like they are sold out in all the usual channels where I shop. Here is one in Australia.

Picked a pair of these up for rainy days, and winter like conditions. I have a pair of the XXX version in white. Last winter they got pretty nasty in the less than fair like weather days. Got those all cleaned up looking new, but do not want to go through that again.

We think alike because I was searching all over and I couldn't find the Liege 75 in a M. :(

But I was able to find the Strada frameset and luckily found a UK based LBS who shipped it out and the best part, it arrives tomorrow.
Looking forward to your finished build.

I saw a medium Liege a few months ago, but a Strada is nice! I recently sold my Motorola Strada and deeply regret it. Post some pics when you build it up.

Two sets of Shimano clipless pedals and love them. Got sick of the new Keos creaking and groaning when climbing (donít think they were providing an editorial comment)

2ea Specialized Pathfinder Pro 700x32C tires and 4ea Tubolito X City TPU tubes.

For my wife's bike, bought a pair of Michelin Pro Course tires and a pair of white Lezyne side pull bottle cages to go along with the white(ish) decal on her LeMond Reno-much easier since the bike is small. For my Reno, a Microshirft R 539 front der. Haven't used it, as I was going thru an old container and there was a new 4403 which I used before the other arrived. Can't hurt to have a spare, especially since the old 4403 spring "nub" broke and seems there were some problems with that happening. Don't feel like switching it out again, so keeping my fingers crossed.

After selling the Helix two weeks ago, for the first time in the last 15 years I didn't have a road bike in the stable. I'm doing my best to keep the R500 boxed up for my ultimate "dream" build, if and once Campagnolo goes wireless next year. So I reignited the search for a modern geo-steel frameset with the hopes of finding a Liege 75 or at least something similar. I wanted to stay within a certain budget and my search led me to a particular shop from across the pond. They don't advertise like CRC, Merlin, Wiggle, etc... in regards to shipping internationally. A couple days, emailing back and forth to confirm the sale and exact shipping cost and the sale was finalized. Huge shoutout and thanks to the staff at https://www.paulmilnescycles.com for making this happen. Hoping to finish up the build by the end of the week and in time for a shakedown ride first thing Saturday morning.

Really nice frame! I love the Merckx branding and the color. I have a euro bike infatuation and after seeing the site you posted I still have it. They do have some really nice frames and tons of Ridley. Glad you got it worked out.
