    Exactly one year ago I got three bikes stolen from my basement.

    First one is a Cougar TT bike, found on ebay via LFGSS, someone might remember it
    https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/3224­27/
    Built Mavic Mektronic and Dura Ace 9sp, with Look Ergostem and Mavic bullhorns
    Here more pictures and all the details

    Second one is a Scapin Eos7 from 2002 with its original Wound Up fork, Ultegra 11sp built, with lots of FRM parts (headset, topcap, stem, seatpost) and handbuilt wheels with PMP carbon hubs

    These pictures are a bit old, as I then added the FRM headset, Absolute Black oval chainrings and Deda Superleggera carbon bars

    Third one is a Cannondale Caad12 in pearl white and black paintjob (pretty rare as this paintjob was only available on bare framesets), Ultegra R8050 Di2 built with Ciamillo Zero G20 SL brakes but incomplete as it had crankset and chain missing (last pictured in the link below)

    I'm not living in the UK, I live in Turin, Italy, but seeing how international is this community I hope to get some news. Please keep your eyes peeled
    Many thanks

    Hi everyone, I'm here to announce that I got this bike stolen from my basement in January 2021 (I totally forgot to write it down here) together with two road bikes (a Scapin Eos7 Ultegra 11sp built and a Cdale Caad12 with Ultegra Di2)
    Keep your eyes peeled please.
    Thanks

    Well, didn't have any time to post anything lately such as components, small parts, diy stuff etc, but managed to build up the rocket yesterday. Tried it and was a total blast! Mektronic suprisingly still working fine (came up something like 20 years before Sram's etap)

    Here's some pics

    So, it all began last year, when I found a 2nd gen """UCI legal""" Mavic Mektronic prototype groupset for tt bikes for sale in Belgium. Well, nothing special at the end, the only difference that made this monstruous groupset legal was the shifter loss at the brake levers top end, as they were simply cut off. You wouldn't be able to use them on bullhorns on a tt bike anyway, the ones on the levers were enough.
    In that period I was studying those great British cycling legends in the 90s, mainly Obree and Boardman. Saw Boardman riding many Cougar tt bikes, the story behind the Cougar brand passionated me, so I decided I had to get one. And I got it! Found very nice frame on ebay two weeks ago, the seller was kind to ship it abroad.
    Now, I wanna build it with lots of rare and crazy components straight outta the 90s
    The cockpit will be a Mavic tt bars and extensions combo with a 1' Look Ergostem and a fully cnc machined Timec Record headset on roller bearings.
    The groupset will be half Mavic Mektronic, half Shimano Dura Ace (cranks, front der, brakes) with some Sg 54-42 or 55-44 9sp chainrings (actually looking for them, give me a yell if you have some layin around), a Marchisio extralight 11-25 9sp cassette with fully machined titanium cogs, all kept together by a gold Kmc x9SL bling bling chain.
    Seatpost is a HQ Fibre Blade, topped by a Flite TT saddle.

    Now. What wheels? Got for Christmas a couple of super heavy but rad af Alpina Flash trispokes, but I found out later they were some mm out of true. Well, not much.. but can you true some trispokes? Nope. So I was thinking to get a Mavic Cosmic Carbone wheelset (the 1 generation)

    I haven't got many pictures, as I'm away for work. Will post all the pictures as I'll come back home again :D
