    Bought these Deda Alanera handlebars for 45€ to put them on the Time frame but not too sure about it yet,maybe I should go for just a simple -10 stem and compact handlebars? Or keep the original Time stem?

    Thanks, I did some short research online and it seems the 'real' Gios blue is kinda hard to reproduce, I read about a red base coat? There's a decal under the clear coat with the name of the first owner on the left rear fork, I'm thinking about removing it but not too sure yet.

    Really hope all the lug-tube connection are ok, that's exactly why I want to test ride it first. If the frame is growing on me I might get it retouched by a bike painter like Unlimited Colors, I'm really thinking about painting the fork and seatpost in red with original re-made graphics.

    thanks all and that VXRS of Boonen is a stunner indeed!

    Came upon this frameset on marktplaats and bought it because I wanted a classic looking carbon frameset for a while. However the frame needs some work, the paint has some scratches and the lugs might be rebonded - I'm not sure - but what I'm sure of that the lugs are repainted and it doesn't look nice.

    First I want to test the ride quality of the frame so I'm going to build up the frame quickly with some temporary parts. If it's OK i want to rebuild it completely with a matching group set and kit.

    Current status, just threw some parts on it for the picture:

    I'm really not sure which way to go on the groupset and stem/handlebar/seatpost, if you have any suggestions please let me know :)

    Apart from bartape and the right cable lengths I think it's ready, what I changed:

    Campagnolo Chorus 11 s groupset

    €11 Smica stem with some repainted front parts

    Fizik R5 saddle

    Look Keo 2 Blade 16nm pedals

    Debranded FSA Energy Compact bars

    Put my FCC wheels in

    Former owner told me the paint is a Gios color, not sure which exactly but it's realy bright/intense in direct sunlight, really like it however i didn't like the paint scheme/decals at first sight.

    I'm new to this forum but I'd like to share my current project with you all. Found some Campagnolo parts in my shed which I wanted to sell, but then just realised it would be more fun to buy another frameset :D

    Found this DSC on marktplaats, a very small brand by the Dutch framebuilder Harry Dekker. Bought the whole bike and sold the groupset and some other parts already.
