Still arguing with myself about bar choice and awful tape job so this is likely to change. Really like the drop of the ergo bars though I want a flat top. Sigh.
Thanks man, and yeah bars are still in the elimination process.
It was just fortuitous that the only 26.8mm post I could find was the perfect colour.
Nitto M186STI any good? Flat ramp, ergo bit.
Ooh, just Googled that and...
I think you've hit the spot there!
Cheers mate, I'm a huge fan of Hunt wheels, we use them all the time in work.
Yeah, loving mine after 500 miles or so. And the silver ones look good on old bangers.
oooow. Just did the same and it also threw up this..
Looks great! Have wondered how tan walls would look against the silver rim.
Making my debut here, with this Concorde.
That is handbuilt silver spoke wheels away from perfection imo. Nice build tho
I've got this wheelset too, but much heavier, and less fun to ride...
To you, @mpe, I say bravo!
What bottle cages are those?
Now I want a set of those Nitto bars to achieve the flat top...
I unfortunately just bought some Cinelli Eubios which will probably have the same problem for bar placement:
Those Nittos are nice but £££! £80 or so. Anyone know a cheaper source for them, or an alternative bar that is easier to find 2nd hand? Ideally 26.4 mm?
Very nice the TVM Gazelle. Wheels look perfect on this. Is it Mavic GP4 rims?
King stainless is right.
Nitto can be expensive, but if you think the shape is for you they are a worthwhile long term investment.
OK, so i'm whoring this in the retro MTB thread too... but you know...
my old GT running modern(ish) 1x10 XTR shifter and derailleur and an 11-speed slx crank
Agreed - having to save my pennies for now. Have you found them in black anywhere?
Roberts EL full campagnolo chorus 11
This is ace. Lovely build-black Campag really suits it, and so much nicer than newest cranksets aesthetically.
