Build thread here

3/29/12: Got pictures with new Sram s900 levers and Force crank. I think I'm happy with it, next upgrade will likely be wheels, but I'm in no hurry.

I want some wider tires, 30c just seems to thin. Whenever I take it on any sort of dirt I'm hesitant because I feel like I could wash out at any turn. I was looking at kenda Small block 8s in 35c, anybody have any opinions?

4/8/12: New wheels! Shimano Dura Ace 7400/Campagnolo Omega Strada. This bike is done! There is nothing I see that needs switching out, time to ride the snot out of it!

May-ish '12Switched wheels with the Ibis, now sporting Ultegra to Mavic open pro wheels. Also New wider tires. Kenda small block 8s, so much easier to mount. Dura Ace cranks also.

July '12: Decided to put the EC90x I bought for the IRO on here since it was just sitting around. Took the Brooks off because it doesn't really lend itself to this setup. Def not keeping it this way.

February '13: DT shifters/brake levers went to the Ibis and this got a pair of ultegra brifters I had sitting around. Also, Carbon bars for the hell of it.

November '14The role of this bike has been take over by my new(still not celeste) Bianchi. Feeling the need to ride some singletrack, I'm going to actually build this up as a cyclocross bike.

Thanks, I'm looking forward to it also, it's been staring me in the face from the corner of my room for far too long

Cant wait

Neither can I, really all I

Neither can I, really all I need is a tandem length shifter cable.

Tandem length?

Are you going to run the shifter-cables under the bar-tape (aero-style..?), is that why you need the tandem length cables? This does look sweet and damn those drops are huge! By the way, I've been eyeing this frameset for a long time and its nice watching you build it. Thanks!

Yeah, the shifter cable is

Yeah, the shifter cable is gonna be routed under the tape. The drops might change, I might change to something without the anatomic bend, it just doesn't really look right on this bike and I have a feeling shifting will be quite what I want with the cable taking that bent.

You're going with brifters?

You're going with brifters? Wanna sell me those downtube shifters?? Sorry I know this is pretty old

did you just read that in the thread?

Depends, the brifters are just an idea floating around in my head. What're they worth to ya?
