Oh and because of people buying all the ugly bits from the saeco off of me within a week, invest in the saeco turned out to be less than €400 (without wheels)
Just when i thought the dadbike is done, this pretty aero bar popped up at a friend
That black and gold CAAD3 Saeco is lovely. Think there is a similar one on Ebay at the moment as well!
Yea its funny.. havent seen one in approx 5 years and after i grabber mine there were 3 others within three months, all in 56
However i am glad that mine already has a fairly useful groupset on it, instead of the stock coda (triple?) crank and brake and so on
+1 to come soon
Yo that Caad 3 is super pretty
Orlowski now equipped with sugino 75 cranks, chainring and BB - what an improvement
Plan is to
Just had an offer from seller of £55 for this as I'm watching it.
Ah great find!
Steerer too short, though :-((
Cleaned off some horrible parts in the meantime
Also found a not-so-cheap fork but condition is nice though
So damn hot. Love the red cages.
@Sig_Arlecchino not sure, looks much lighter in daylight
@BernardRenault thanks! Its got a 12-30 cassette and a gold chain now (pics to follow)
Found a nice straight and cannondale labeled time fork for the blue CAD; need to cut steerer or replace threaded headset with threadless headset 🧑🏻🦯
Alright, threaded headset replaced by threadless headset and alloy fork replaced by carbon fork
Installing crown race and star nut without proper tools, however, sucks big time
Looking good! Just keep an eye on those forks, I had a similar pair and eventually the alloy fork end debonded from the carbon legs. Luckily I wasn't riding it at the time or it could have been painful!
Re forks sounds not too promising though :-G
Love me the clean look of some gumwalls
New project arrived last week
CAD 2 c400 in colour eggplant
Great condition with brakes and drivetrain already maintained
Today i replaced the headset in the first place and also removed pedals and chainrings for the intended replacement cranks
Stem also replaced by a sakae from parts bin
The wide tires ride really lovely
Removing the crown race without the proper tool was fun
