    yes, you could do the ds with thicker spokes and the nds with the slimmer ones, eg. d-light and laser, or other combinations, e.g. DT competition ds and DT revolution nds, but with your 80kg I think its not neccecary for a road wheelset. looks cool tho
    I have a friend with 95kg and he rides cx-rays in his rear wheel with 24 spokes. so far nothing exploded

    2x seems sufficient/no need for another pattern and for road use you can go aero (sapim cx-ray or similar bladed spokes) or use double butted spokes a la dt revolution or sapim laser.

    gorgeous Hansom! good luck finding a big seta, they are hens teeth rarity and I've never seen one bigger than 56.

    looks like a valve extension you screw on th existing valve (for deep rims). maybe the real valve core underneath it is still closed?

    you can try corima brake pads or similar cork-type brake pads, they should ( at least the corima ones claim that) have very little abrasion effect on the rims and you should be able to squeeze many more miles out them.

    a buddy got a bargain on a max frameset. but we couldn't find anything about the euroline brand, best guess is, that it was built by some australian builder that I can't remember the name of.

    yo, buying components is difficult on the flea markets, basically only complete bikes are sold. kleinanzeigen is the best shot for individual parts, I search there occassionally, too. if you search oldschool stuff, cicli berlinetta in Prenzlauer Berg can sort you out, but the shop is not the cheapest.

    my colossi cheeko / goldsprint ronin. its from the time frame when colossi produced in taiwan and many shops had the frames in their own colorways. bought in a winter sale from the Goldsprint shop xmas 2015 i think. must have ridden about 35000 km on this as a commuter. it's on its 3rd wheelset now and I broke a saddle rail once. still my main commuter bike.
