Done at last… finally!!!
This Paganini Team CX bike was my new year’s build for 2015 and it took all of 2015 and a bit of 2016 to complete. My goals were to save the frame from rusting away, use of as many spare parts as possible, and to keep the budget small. I succeeded with the first goal as the frame has been saved, no thanks to a previous owner sanding the paint and chrome (sand the chrome, why?), now it has a uniform brushed metal look that has been sealed. The mish mash of parts proves this was a definitely a parts build but I’m good with that as there are some nice parts highlighted on the bike. I nailed the final goal by only popping for a new chain, cables & housing, and some bar tape. The frame being double butted Columbus SL or SP provides a forgiving ride and the geometry makes for a responsive and explosive bike. This bike is well suited for cyclocross, gravel grinding, and pavement… it’s a blast to ride and it feels great to have given new life to a 30 year old frame!
