the frame is great! the parts not so much, this frame needs the Titanium Campa Seat Post, also it needs a polished metal Stem and polished Campa breaks, and the Crank, even better if Cama Record the old one. then the whole will look great. this looks like a modern/traditional MIX. best Stefan

P.S. the chris king headset looks odd/ugly.

yes yes, to each their own, no problem for me that your bike looks a little too bulky... just said what is see.

stuff the haters!
top build, im taking delivery of my master light soon (well 10 weeks really:()
Mine will be a similar, a few different components though.
FWIW i reckon the super record in all its carbon blackness looks far better than any silver/alloy group would.

Very nice indeed. A good setup. The only retro bit is the frame itself, which makes it a modern bike. It's looks better than mixing and matching old and new bits IMO.

I always have a steel bike (that's all we had in the 60's when I started) and it always has the smiley effect.

Thanks...I musti've looked at hundreds of Master builds before settling on this setup. I agonized over carbon vs chromed. :smartass:

Yes, I DEFINITELY didn't want to mix/match...

It still baffles me that the person who build "Thing 1" (best looking titanium bike ever) also came up with this :(
And if I ever meet an aardvark, I'm going to step on its damn protruding nasal implement until it couldn't suck up an insect if its life depended on it.
