An update on my faithful Baum – now almost 4 years young and going from strength to strength. My original component selections have slowly been swapped out to suit my fit, riding style and taste – culminating today with the new Campy 2015 SR groupset. Only the frameset and headset remain of the original.

Despite now having six roadbikes my Baum still gets the majority of riding time. I never tire of riding it or looking at it. It is now a solid functional build able to get me up and down the local hills in all weather. We moved to a hilltop home – last 1.5km home is pretty brutal. Accordingly the gearing is now more mountain goat variety and the stopping power of the Mavic Xalith wheels is highly valued.

Current weight is approx. 6.9kg

Initial impressions of the new Campy are that it is obviously different both to use and in looks. If you have a Titanium bike this groupset’s colour is a perfect match to the warm metallic Ti colour – it works really well on the Baum. Very early to make a call on how well it works functionally – not what I was expecting - front shifting is the immediately noticeable change.

A big thanks to Glen at Trak Cycles for making the groupset happen so quickly - overcoming seeming best efforts of the supply chain to stop it from happening anytime soon.

You certainly have a good eye for how a bike should look. Another success. Well done, I like it a lot.

What a beauty! Classic lines. Even without the verbiage (well written background) the photo of the bike show's that it was well thought. It is truly a sight. I bet it rides as good as it looks.

Nice classic look. I'm not 100% sure i like the new Campy cranks tbh, think they'll take a while to grow on me

Sill warming up to new Campagnolo cranks as well, but nonetheless, this is an amazing looking bike.

+1 on classic graphics and not the ugly Baum GTR motif!

Nice bike....as a prospective 15' Campy purchaser.....care to elaborate more on the 'not what I was expecting' part?

I have only ridden around the carpark but shifting feels different - bit stiffer maybe. First thing you notice is double click required to downshift from big chainring to small chainring - in effect making this shift slower - be interested to see how it feels on the road proper.

Very lovely to look at your Baum. I do feel the love. This January will be 7 years since I built my R320 and the Honeymoon is not over. At 5.7 kg I have room to still drop some weight but it's reliability and function are perfect so her extra grams are perfectly acceptable me.

Looks great, and FWIW I love the look of the new crankset. Did you get the standard FD or the S2 FD?

The thing I like about this Baum besides the new components is the paint job, it doesn't have the common GT stripes etc...just white with decals...

Ironically that's the old school scheme...

And it's all paint. No decals.

I never liked the GTR paint schemes. The Ford GT40 IMO is a super ugly car with a klunky paint pin-stripe paint job and type treatment. I just don't associate that aesthetic with Baum for whatever reason. It's come the the point where it seems like the majority of Baum's all sort of look the same with the over the top GTR motif so it is very refreshing to see a bike with the traditional livery!

IMO Baums like this, and Steves (http://hmmm.stevencaddy.com/image/96872890731) aesthetically blow the cheesy GTR stuff out of the water with restraint and class!
