I would prefer a Campagnolo record carbon seatpost.


The top section of the handlebar is black, so with tape on it all you will see is black. A Campy seatpost would be nice, but I need something without setback.

Below are two possible options for wheels. The first set is a pair of Corima clincher rims laced to M5 hubs. The second set is a pair of Mavic Open Pro rims laced to silver Campagnolo Record titanium hubs.

Not sure which I like best (not sure if I like one of both for that matter). With tires on I suppose the Corima wheels will look pretty sweet. That said, with the other set on the bike, the bike looks a bit more like a crit racer.

Before I make a decision on what wheels to go for, I want to finish the build. Unfortunately the platers forget to cover the RD thread, so the bike it is currently at my LBS, who is going to try to chase the the threads.

Almost finished up the bike today. All that remains is the bar tape, which I will be doing first thing tomorrow.

When I was finishing the bike, I stumbled upon an issue that I have yet to resolve properly. The groupset I am using came with a Campy C10 chain. I ordered a KMC quick link, to allow for quicker assembly and disassembly of the chain. In the past KMC quick links have always worked fine for me. In this case however, after fitting the quick link it remained stiff, as if it were too tight for the chain. Luckily I had a KMC quick link Shimano 10 speed lying around that did seem to fit, but I am not confident it will stay in place :| .

Looks awesome, SWijland! I love seeing one of a kind projects like your Fondriest. Only one small thing is bothering me though; I think you need a black, and possibly less bulky stem.

not sure how that stem qualifies as bulky? (oh no its not slammed?) but id imagine black bar tape would balance things out. shame about those heinous ergos but hey, whatever works.

Finally the glamour shots :D . As you can see the copper is already starting to show a nice bit of oxidation.

Nice! Do you plan on letting it oxide, or try to keep it polished?

I plan to let it oxidise. Polishing it isn't really an option, seeing as the copper layer is very thin and relatively soft (compared to chrome for example). As such, if I had wanted to keep it shiny, I would have had to get it clear coated.

Best copper project since Peugeot TT show bike.
Please let it oxide.
Wonder if it will oxide to green. Plating thick enough?
I can imagine it with partial and randomly greenish copper oxidation.

That might take a while... if there is even enough of a layer. ;) but would look incredibly cool.
