• thanks @blacklisted

    now I'm thinking about changing stem to Thomson x2, but I'm still not sure about the angle
    -17 would look badass, bud -10 would be more comfty...

  • small update in caad
    saddle - Specialized Romin Evo Comp
    stem - Thomson x2 -17*

  • All you need now, is a smaller frame.

  • No he doesn't.

    This looks like a good fit. Having a 140mm stem and a foot of seatpost showing isn't always neccesary.

    Very classy build that, class.

  • Oh just being picky and jealous over theese wheels.

  • I don't think frame is too big for me. It just doesn't have sloping, so it doesn't show too much seatpost. Stem is 110mm, so not too short. It's just comfortable :)

  • I finally managed to take some photos of my Mielec CX bike, because I want to sell it.
    So this is how it looks

  • Thinking about this similar caad 3 f anf below. What typd of bb and what size? Can i put a modern crankset on it?


  • Caad3 has standard BSA BB, I use Rotor 3D+ crankset so I just bought Rotor's BSA30 bb, but there are lots of cranksets you can fit to bsa bb

  • Ok, Motta is sold, Mielec is for sale, time for some real deal

    rather not quick project, but I'll keep thread updated

  • Frame is gonna be made by Rychtarski, it's painted now, so in a few days it'll be ready for building.

  • why cromor?

  • Cromor OS, because it's cheap and lugs compatibile.
    Few more days and I'll tell something about ride quality.

  • Fair enough. Stainless dropouts?

  • yup.
    there's new photo, now the color looks more like it should ;)

  • What's up with the upper head lug?

  • lots of modern lugs look like this. Now I won't have too much sloping and headtube long enough, so I don't need spacers under the stem. It's also possible to cut it down, but I like it.

  • very pegoretti ht lug

  • Would like to see the Motta get 'Period Corrected'

  • saddle has to be lower, then cables, chain and it's ready to ride.

  • Lovely.

  • looks mean!
