This is my first road bike. I just wanted something nice to jump on when I don't feel like riding fixed (which isn't often).

I gave it a small overhaul and bought new bars, stem, bar tape, new derailleur hanger and new Dura Ace shift and brake cables, Dura Ace headset, and a classic Flite saddle. I came across a great deal on the wheels. Some may think they are out of place but I love them on this bike, or any for that matter. Its been a good learning experience during the rebuild, and I'm really happy with the results.

I've googled the crap out of it but I don't have much info on the bike itself. After finally figuring out what model it is, this is what I found on bikepedia: Click here for info

ATB This is one of the nicest looking road bikes I have seen,it really grabs me.


Why would the wheels be out of place? Because of the Shimano setup? How did you make that work by the way? Any indexing issues?

Yes, I guess out of place

Yes, I guess out of place because of the group. I never ended up getting it to work like I wanted to, which is why I sold it. It was a fun ride, but never completely sound. I tried everything too, even a jtek shiftmate.

Sell me your wheels... Great

Sell me your wheels... Great looking bike

Thanks for the

Thanks for the comments..
Makes sense about the chain. As I said, Its my first time building up a road bike, so looks like I need some changes in the drivetrain. The chain that is on there is what came with it when I bought it, so it looks like I need to change that too.

edit: just ordered a new one ;)

chain lane ;-)

Please!! take a new pic with an other chain lane!!! That' hurts in my eyes. ;-)
But the bike is awesome!!


Your chain is way too short, the jockey arm should be hanging down, not pointing towards the front wheel. Fix that now or you'll have some problems.

same boat

I'm in the same boat as yourself, ride fixed 95% of the time, but bust out a nice GT roadie for the long hauls.... love the campy wheels by the way
