^ might get a pass with all that new product haha. I got away with some of my Cannondale assembly being done in the lounge.

Anyway, stunning bike. I like the Itallian group on the Japanese frameset.

Didn’t know Campagnolo was NJS-approved :D
Mom: He was very sickly until he started riding around on that bicycle.
Dad: Yeah... well... now his body’s fine, but his mind is gone.

Honestly, that's how framemakers need to decal their frames.
My Cannondale is a neon light short of overdoing it.
Beautiful rig. It tripped me out at first seeing the exiting brake housing without an entry. :unbelievable:

More pics to come once finished.
It's fully built and being ridden now, however I need new rear brake housing, waiting on king titanium cages, black or blue tape etc.

Might throw a campy srm on too !

I was also disappointed to discover a problem with one of the nipples on the rear bora (especially after gluing tires)
It's twisted/warped and cracked. Trying to get it shorted with the shop as they're new too.

...beautiful ride...that skinny Steelman stem looks great with the frame tubing dimensions. Would definitely get that nipple sorted out on the Boras before you ride them (I would request a wheel replacement from wherever u bought them as they ar still brand new)

It's funny you should mention that. The team is actually supported by shimano and I was given permission to run campy, however I'd have to supply spares etc.

their views have since changed and looks like I'll be on shimano, probably 9100

I also heard shimano plans to release a new dura ace group in the not too distant future ! Crazy as 9100 just came out

9100 is a great group and will look dope on that bike - plus your pedals won't feel like pink swans anymore..
