Looks to me the main issue could be no pedals :smartass:

Thanks all! The saddle is a NOS Selle San Marco Concor from the 1980's and I know it's a boat anchor but I love it for its comfort as this is my long distance rig, the classic perforated leather and - exactly as Samuel said - the way it covers the clamp of the custom painted Thomson Masterpiece post.

Tinea Pedis, the pedals will be Speedplay stainless but no use to put them on since there is no cassette body yet (waiting for new bearings) :mrgreen:

i'd really like to buy another bike with some of the details that you have done on this build.

the details i like best are the chunky rear stays that keep the same diameter all the way back, the shot-in seat tube cluster, and the white painted forks, and of course the wheel/tyre combo.

so yes, its inspiring work :beerchug:

Here's the build list. Nothing fancy but esthetically it all fits together nicely...

Frame: Merlin Extralight ; 1993 ; 57cm
Fork: Ritchey Pro alu/carbon ; Ø 1"
Headset: Campagnolo Record aheadset ; Ø 1"
Stem: Syntace F99 w/titanium bolts
Handlebar: no name alu, 46cm
Brake handles: Campagnolo Chorus 10sp Ergopower
Ribbon: Fizik Microtex
Brakes: Campagnolo Chorus
Brake/shift cables: Campagnolo
Bottom Bracket: Campagnolo UT
Crankset: Campagnolo Chorus 10sp carbon UT ; 172.5 mm ; 53/39
Pedals: Speedplay Stainless
Seat post: Thomson Masterpiece ; Ø 27.2mm
Saddle: Selle San Marco Concor Laser
Chain: Campagnolo C-10
Front derailleur: Campagnolo Chorus 10 sp
Derailleur clamp: B-T-P carbon
Rear derailleur: Campagnolo Chorus 10 sp ; short cage
Cassette: Campagnolo Veloce ; 13-26
Hubs: Campagnolo Record ; 32h
Spokes: DT Competition
Rims: Mavic Open Pro Ceramic+
Tires: Vittoria Open Corsa EVO-SC
Bottle holders: Campagnolo Chorus carbon

p.s.: drop seems a bit insane because I have to lower the saddle a bit after the pedals are on.

Hmm...I'm not sold on the seat post being white, rather a polished Campy but regardless I think it looks GREAT! :thumbup:

nicely done on the white painting

those wheels sure make ik look good, to bad those rims are getting harder to get
lucky that i have some left for my self

some delta brakes would look great on the bike, to bad those are heavy and dont brake

change nothing and ride it
