I had that exact same bike in a 58 sloping - which was too big - so i got a c59 in 56 sloping - which seems just right. That frame is sweet - rides great and will ALWAYS look classic.

Enjoy and ride the hell out of it.


Trust me I followed all your threads! I don't know how you could say goodbye to a nago

Looking great! I love this paint scheme!

Minor question... Have you considered losing the spacer and going to -8 instead of -17 on the stem? It could keep stem more in line with top tube.

Overall just great and I'm excited to see how it wraps up. I'm assuming white bartape is forthcoming?


I took your advice and tried a 120mm -7 deg stem I had and you're right, looks much better. Now I've got to find a 130mm ! It's an excuse to get a 3T arx.

That's not wind, michel2! Those palm trees are actually moving to the right at a fast pace. Sort of like your hair blowing back if you run.
:lol:

Nice work Dave. The black wheelset looks sweeet against the carbon fork and stays. Nothing wrong with the black stem, but I think a white one would work nicely as well.

Thanks for all the ideas guys, I will be trying a 3t arx pro in the coming days in 13cm -6 deg to see how that fits. I may also be tempted to chop the steer tube down a little further to compensate. Will post an update soon.

Great choice. The white stripes should look awesome on your bike.

130mm feels much better. Swapped the spacers around for a lower position as well. First ride tomorrow afternoon

Weighing in at 15.8lbs at the moment.

What bottle cages are those? Do you like them and how's the weight?

Looking very good! Let us know how it rides!

The cages are some eBay carbon specials. I doubt they're super light, but they're not too heavy either. Never measured them. They have yet to drop a bottle on me for about 3 years so I can say I have been pretty satisfied with them. Especially for $25 shipped for the pair!

Arundels soon but can't decide if I should do oil slick or whites...
