    I know you do! I sent you a pm asking if you had any spare!

    No mine are also painted on, but for some reason on the non-drive side it looks like someone has purposefully tried to chip the serotta logos off... bit strange. Not sure what happened...

    Just checked in with the Dr who says there's no change yet

    Do they know they're looking for pieces of ate?

    @fizzy.bleach it was a shame your cannondale was never finished. It would have been amazing. I feel your wheel pain though... did you shift the frameset in the end?

    For the rest of the build I've got a DA 7400 groupset. I found a nice 90's 'Team Club Roost' saddle that came over from Italy (was actually looking for a Concor light), and I've had a NOS shimano 600 seatpost lying around for years. Sticking with that, it's a really nice seatpost and I'm not forking out for a DA one just for the sake of it. Also actually prefer this one.

    Handlebars - bought some Nitto 186's. Really like the shape, and I understand they were actually designed for these STI shifters. I'm having stem compatibility issues though which I'll come onto..

    @BigH - good to hear from you. Stem is currently on the concorde but semi considering sticking it on this (though initially wanted to stay silver finishing kit). I'll PM you on it - didn't realise at the time how hard these are to find! Hope you're good.

    Yep, sorry all - this is 650c... (title amended)

    @Sig_Arlecchino - noice. Would love a normal proportioned version one of these! The paint on yours has survived much better than on mine.

    So I've pretty much got everything. The wheels were a total nightmare, I scoured ebay since I got the frame for some suitable clinchers as I really didn't want to go tubs. I can tell you the interesting sets rarely come up, especially as a pair. I even signed up to some triathlon forums and asked on there but no dice. @pazu eventually put me on to these HEDs and I ended up getting them last month from a guy in Germany....

    I ideally didn't want to go down that route, as pazu has these already himself, and I see @dry also did this a few years back. But these were too good to turn down and the hunt was way too long and painful. Farsports do 650c rims, so that was another train of thought but it would have been an expensive option.

    The wheel saga is not over though - will update later.
