Hows it going everyone, new guy that just joined the boards to gain some insight, and just to checkout whats going on in the world of other cyclists.

Here is my current road bike. She's not the lightest on the road at 18lbs, but for an original from 1992, id say she's not bad. Bike has been owned since new, but sat collecting dust until early this year when she was outfitted with all up to date gear. Just got refreshed with a new original decal set.

That is a good looking build, but the amount of spacers on the steerer looks to be a bit on the unsafe side? :noidea:

Also, I think you need to put a shiny Dura Ace 7800 crankset on there ASAP :)

Smallest headtube I've ever seen! Looks like it's impossible to mount a stem without spacers and still having the drops higher than the tyres level :noidea: :noidea: :?:

Found out the hard way on not being able to put my 7800 crank in. Ive got the tiny square taper pressed in BB that a few of these came with so hollowing it out or having a replacement BB shell put in wouldn't be worth the time nor the expensive price to do so :(
