  • did a proper spin yesterday and not just around the block, the Moscow bars feel quite good in their current position.

  • changed the wheels back to the sheriffs

  • found some pista pedals and added matching ALE clips with Christophe straps.... but didn't bother with putting them on the bike.

  • rode the bike today after an eternity of it hanging on the wall. overall it is a super smooth ride , currently testing some tufo calibra tyres if they are any good. some photos were taken as well

  • Sweet bike, but my neck hurts just from looking at it... 😅

  • I recently got myself a Fluidisk (sourced locally, had a great talk to the dude letting it go) to tinker on, absolutely not neccessary but luckily that's not the question in this forum :)
    I'm still in need of a crack pipe adaptor, a fresh tire, and look more into the realm of russian kevlar discs. my version came without lockring thread, but I found pics where there are lockring threads on rear wheels. So, the hub internals have to be interchangeable a la Mavic 3G or similar?
    edit: big thanks to @Sig_Arlecchino for pointing out the offer!

  • No sweat, glad you got it :) that‘ll look great on the antonov, hope I‘ll see it someday on the local roads!

  • Is that a Road one that has had the axel swapped? Have a first gen Hed disc that is just like this that is respaced to 120 width

  • I asked BigH about this, and apparently this is a OG track disc, with no lockring threads. The possibility of this being a road one is very slim, as the seller had this disc from the Velodrome in Frankfurt Oder from a national team rider. Another mate told me that early campy discs were without lockring thread too.
    Some road ones were retapped to accept a lockring, but they have wider threads that have enough space on them to to this, whereas the track wheels usually have space for one cog and thats it.

  • small disc update
    At first I thought that i can bodge a pump adaptor with a 90° bit for a compressor and a valve adapter, but this didn't work bc the valve bit has to be screwed on and that's just impossible in this tiny valve hole, so I bought the proper thing. gluing the tub on was relatively stress-free as the tyre was already mounted on another rim and had stretched enough for pain-free montage.
    I used the cog that came with it, an aluminium Dura-Ace cog that weighs 16g ... didn't knew that Shimano made Alu versions of them.
    will borrow a tub Shamal front wheel from another mate when I see him.

  • Which valve adapter did you get? I’ve got a different Russian disc wheel with a tiny valve hole. The normal crack pipe ones don’t fit in mine.

  • I got the citec one

  • Nice one, thanks

  • just put this together to see how a dark front wheel suits it
