For a long time I wanted to make thread with all of my bikes in "current projects". Now after selling my GT Pulse I'm starting few new projects.
I have Mielec cx bike, which for a while is my only complete bike
have to sort bar and hoods angle, but this is how it stands
first project is polish Romet Super road bike, reynolds 531 tubes
plan is full resto, ori decals etc.
for now I have most parts: crankset, derailleurs, brakes and levers, headset-campa gran sport, shifters and hubs - campa nuovo record.
This + 3ttt record stem, 3ttt competizione gimondi bars, san marco gs seatpost (almost fits the groupset!) + san marco regal saddle + super champion arc en ciel rims
next project is Cannondale caad 3
I have original frameset, but fork >>>>>>>>
I'll put Profile Design ahead fork and Chris King headset
Still don't have plan for that build, most probably Sram Rival and some hhsrb'ness
also paint isn't in perfect condition, few signs of oxidation so I'm thinking about naked polished alu. Although stickers are really nice...
and last one - fixed gear
parts are waiting for new frameset, ready to put it together
Ok, first update is ready.
Fork for cannondale has arrived, also found Hope seatpost collar, and I already have ck no logo headset
Tarck is ready, not sure if hhsb or ratbike...
That mielec is great.
thanks, it's also nice to ride, bar angle is sorted now and it's really comfortable.
Also I'm thinking, what groupset should I go in cannondale - Sram Rival vs. Shimano 105 5800, any recommendations?
OK I miss riser
so I put PRO carbon 60cm wide riser, I've never ridden so comfty fixed before...
Where'd you cop them risers? I need to source some carbon 25.4 bar now monkey lites are in high demand
In Poland there were lots of them few months ago, brand new of course. Maybe they still are available.
just my 2p, but i think compact drops looked much better than the 6m wide risers..
maybe, but it wasn't as fun to ride as it is now ;)
Some new parts for Caad
time for wheelset
next update for Cannondale - brakes
Campagnolo Chorus Skeleton
Those wheels are so goddam pretty
new derailleurs day!
Also, motta has a new front end, I'll post some photos later
Damn that caad is gonna be nice
@shibbylibertine I hope so ;)
Motta has now Orłowski Max fork, Saiko headset and Thomson stem, rides like dream
pedal was broken, but now it's fixed, so some rat pointz here :D
also I have to buy a new Gatorskin, rear one is almost dead
bars and stem for caad finally arrived
Motta's lovely, can't wait to see the Caad finished too!
few more parts for caad, another few on the way, so it'll be finished in few nex days
Nice parts on the caad - maybe you should get a nicer frame too...
That CAAD is awesome. Top job @Shl
