Will do eventually. It's a Tecno with Athena I scored for a song. Threw on my saddle, pedals and neutron tubs. It's a battleship but amazing on descents.

neutron tubulars? You don´t see them very often.
I really like the paint and the classy build. Do you use no-Q rings?
How is shifting performance?

They came w the q rings. Never used them before. Shifting is ok, they're the 11 speed version. They're really not very ovalized compared to the newer qxl and obv osymetric. Didn't really feel any major difference.

If you don´t feel any difference it is in the right position. If chance position, you will know what I mean.

Wow, Bx, couldn't see yours on my phone, what a true beauty! Which fork? Did you re-decal it yourself?

I'm trying to decide weather to go with a silver athena chainset just to round it out. Also considering picking up a silver Thomson seat post and x2 stem. I love the Neutron tubs, found them a couple of years ago and have used them for even used them for racing, they're fantastic and have a storied history with wins at Roubaix (Backstedt) and Flanders (Ballan). 2014 is supposed to see a Neutron Ultra tub released! However, I kinda think a pair of silver rim tubs would probably look best.

It´s a Easton SL straight fork. But I think of building it back to the original steel fork.

I like the silver and black mix you have. It´s a modern bike, so some carbon parts are very much ok, imo.

I don´t know any actually silver tub rims. So do you think of nos campa strada/crono rims? And what hubs do want to use?

While I think the fork matches the black bar tape etc it would be nice to see it with the original steel fork...

Yes, you are probably right. I´m looking for a CK grip nut conversion kit in black classic.

Thomson stem not a good idea. Don't like the chainrings that much. Not sure about the saddle either.

Always great with a balanced comment with likes and dislikes

Well, I like the frame a lot and also in combination with the wheels. Maybe the stem isn't the visual best choise, but all in all a very nice build.

Cheap & heavy, Deda RS01 comes in polished silver. About 1.5 seconds to remove the logos with Acetone.
