  • The bb is perfectly silent though...

  • You can see the Litespeed serial number, I can identify 22, there should be 5 digits.
    Other angles=other digits :)

  • So after playing for a while with the flashlight I have "2354" and what looks like a C or a G!

  • Playing with a torch always brings unexpected results...
    23540 or 23546 is the 1997 Litespeed designation
    If it was a G2354 (but placed classically for EMC) it would fit the 1996
    After all, your frame is not a nameless orphan :)

  • Thanks! Indeed it's nice to have a bit of background on it :)
    Now I just have to finish the build and (hopefully) enjoy it

  • And here it is :)
    Campagnolo record titanium 10s groupset except the chorus crankset and proton wheels.

  • very nice. Love the colour.

  • That's brilliant!

  • Gave my 1996 Litespeed built Merckx EX ti a makeover for its 25th birthday, now with added Columbus Max fork and some colourful bits.

  • Thinking of selling my Corsa Extra (Max tubing) frameset.

  • You interested in selling those wheels?

  • Sold the wheels already, I was too heavy for them.

  • Fair enough, I was probably too heavy as well lol.

    Looks back fondly to days of being 75kg

  • I'm 77 nowadays but I didn't want to ride these wheels here in Flanders. I guess they were made for 70 kilo riders. :-)

  • I'm also thinking of selling my MXL
