That Kelson is a very very nice ride. Pretty awesome components on it too!

+1!
For me it just needs a polished quill stem and maybe chainrings with a little less drillium - messes with the overall simplicity!
Extremely nice!

Love the Kelson, particularly as I am currently working with Brian on a KVA MS2 Cross/Gravel bike. The ST he wanted to use was on backorder, but I understand that he should have the full tubeset this week, and welding should begin soon. I can't wait. He has been great to work with and he was a pleasure to talk to at NAHBS. Hopefully we will be seeing more of his bike around the forums.

One of my steel rides is below...

Brian is one of the greats! My only problem is trying to decide what to have him build me next?

My ‘new’ steel bike – readers of Ride Review magazine may recognise this one – an original 1986 Pinarello Vini Ricordi Pro Team bike featuring a custom Pinarello team frameset (not a production frame) and first generation C-Record with cobalto brakes. The SLX tubing frame and the groupset have several subtle differences from standard production versions - external cables, number brackets, blanked off 2nd water bottle position, cut-down BB with Ti spindle and cut-outs to the RD. This bike was raced by first year pro rider Frederico Chiotto in the Giro that year who finished 122nd - his name is still painted on the top tube. It has plenty of battle scars but has been meticulously mechanically maintained. Amazing to ride.

Surely your lovely Pinarello deserves more pictures, or at least a link to where we can find them.

Added some more to the original post - thanks for asking!

Tinea - Cinelli is alive and well

- the project turned out so well that it has become a wall queen - has not been ridden since I finished it - hence the need for a 'rider' - the Pina.
BTW - you finished that Merckx yet!!!!!

Too right! - the second generation Italian frame makers have a lot to answer for! Pinarello's best work came from the leadership of the master Giovanni - to Pina purists I'm told things went downhill after it moved factory in the early 90's and the next generation took over
- and don't get me started on Cinelli post-Cino
