    Posted By: parkman14I think you should keep the Ibis Shimano, but get different brake levers, or at least silver s500 levers.


    The Ibis is shimano. DA 7700 dt shifters with Sram s900 levers.

    Posted By: parkman14Also, why 650b? Will you be using fenders or do you just want some fat tire bliss in your life?


    Fat tires and to have something both different from everything out there and different from the rest of my herd.

    Posted By: parkman14An American Classic/A23 wheelset would be a fucking sweet replacement set for the Ibis, especially with black or silver rims.


    The amclassic hubs are campy hubs.

    Posted By: adrian13346Yes. You should do one of these so I can get your Omega Strada wheelset.


    You are never getting this wheelset.

    Posted By: parkman14I just don't like Omega Stradas. And the radial lacing kills me.




    Posted By: parkman14Tyler, I'm hijacking this build thread.


    Over my dead body. I WILL BAN YOU. Just kidding.

    That's right. A little reading of the thread never hurt.



    I would rather the front be laced 3x too, but you can't argue with the price I payed.

    No.
    I read the thread.
    I said keep it Shimano because I knew it was Shimano and you're putting Campy on it.

    because it's so fast, can you dig it? no seriously, i understand the difficulty. and no matter how close you think you got it, it will still look different on different displays.

    for my money, i think the porch shot has the best, most diffuse natural light, so i'm thinking it may be the closest to the "true" color (although did you say you filled in with some flash? at least you have spectrum control). the indoor shot is hopeless (no offense intended), and the full sunlight shot may have some saturation issues.

    Yeah, I just wish the porch railing didn't cast such a long shadow. And yes, a flash was used. Looking back I think those were the best.
    I really like the street location though, I need an overcast day. Take a look at my newest photo on flickr.

    None taken. That was taken with my phone as a "just look at this shit" shot.

    Finding a 28 hole 650b rim is not the easiest thing in the world.

    Velocity doesn't even mention a 28hole synergy, but apparently harris cyclery has them.
