Needed some distraction today and build up the Concorde frame I had laying around the garage.
Since it's TDF, it's a nice colour to drive around now.

I bought the frame for 15 euros. and that was to use the campagnolo seatpost bolt it had on it on my sister's bike. The bolt itself costs 15, so basicly the frame is free.
I got the fork and brakes from a friend. The wheels I had laying around from my CAAD1, but I had to redish them to fit this frame.

The seatpost that came with the frame was a 25.4mm, it needed a 26.8. So initially I shimmed it. After crushing the top of the seatpost I couldn't get it back out. I ended up drilling the seatpost and trying to tap it out, without succes. So I had to cut it and saw it down lengthwise. Can't tell you how much a pain in the ass that was.
I ended up buying a cheap BBB skyscraper seatpost.

This bike isn't intended as a weight weenie, but it's not crazy heavy either. The bike cost me 42 Euros in total. So value for money is awesome! :lol:

That's awesome! Really not that much different that Voekler's yellow C59 :). Well done.

I'd love to have a c59... aargh, I really need more garage space :D
Maybe I'll have to go to the TDF and try to swap it :evil:

next step is to paint certain components black. I'd also like to find another fork. The axle to crown length is at least 10mm too long and the rake is a bit much. It needs to be grabbed by the scruff of the neck while cornering, on the straight it rolls like a tank.
Does anyone have a suggestion where to find a light, cheap, threaded steerer fork? I'll measure the Axle to crown length but i'd say somewhere in the 365 mm region.

I'd plug those bar ends on the Concorde before they take a nice little core sample out of your leg or something if you go down.

Just wanted to know if anybody can tell me anything more about the Concorde frame.
Especially what kind of tubing it has and model year. I sent an email to Oostcolor Belgium, where the frame was painted, but I haven't gotten a reply yet.

Planning to strip the fork and other components. I'm also considering removing the derailler mountings, shifting bosses and fork eyes.

Just wanted to make sure I'm not gonna dessecrate a rare or valuable frame. Even some kind of racing pedigree would save it from beeing turned into another hipster café racer :oops: (I know, highly unlikely).

EDIT: Not gonna remove the derailler mounts and shift bosses after all. It didn't feel right "destroying" the frame for the sake of losing a few grams.
Did lighten it up by removing the chain guard and the internal rear brake cable completely. I had previously cut it down to make it easier to replace the cable if I decided to run a rear brake. Fairly confident I'm gonna go fixed now.
Also the fork eyes where cut and filed down, fork stripped and painted in matte black.

Got my first real weenie parts in last week and just mounted them provisionally.

Short summary of changes:
-Ritchey WCS carbon streem saddle
-Ritchey WCS evocurvo bar (I simply love the shape of this thing, however it has a bit more flex in the drops than the stock handlebar)
-Ritchey pro paradigm pedals
-Vittoria corsa evo CX (have a set of the open corsas on my daily driver rs80 c50 wheels.)
-planet-x ultralight cnc calipers
-planet-x seat clamp
-planet-x quick release skewers
-dremeled the FSA chainring

future updates I've got planned:
-Swapping the fork, Hoping to find a slice carbon with enough steerer left or otherwise premium fork. If all else fails ... Ritchey WCS
-Jagwire cables, will also ditch the barrel adjusters
-CS 6600 casette on the way
-Thomson masterpiece with smud carbon parts and Ti bolts
-Black Ti bolts for stem and top cap

After this season I'd like to invest in a new group as well. My first choice would be Campa 10 speed, but I have 2 Shimano wheelsets and can't get Campa freehub bodies for those. I dislike Sram for several reasons, so that leaves me With Shimano. Maybe I'll try a 7900 and see how that feels.

Do note this weight is without casette and glued tires on bathroom scales, I estimate the complete weight currently is at 7.4 kg

Thanks for looking

love the concorde

like mine its proberly a heavy and stiff frame
perfect for single speed and fixed gear

i geus it has colombus tubing like most top models did
paintjobs were always perfect on those frames

Hey, thanks for that info. I expected it had colombus tubing, but wasn't sure. I can't find a great deal about these frames, so I always love learning these things.

To be perfectly honest, I haven't put it on a scale yet, but I'll check.
However I can tell you, it was the best bargain I ever made. The bottem bracket is surprisingly stiff and power transfer is good. The headtube isn't quite as strong as a modern day road bike, but that does transfer in a smoother front end.
I've just got to track down a good fork for it to make it a bit snappier in the handling department.
I firmly believe in horses for courses, and this frame has every potential for being a good training bike. It just doesn't beat you up. Even with the singlespeed setup (46*15 or 86 gear inches) I can easily keep a good pace in headwinds for long periods of time. The goal now is to swap all the 105 stuff from my CAAD9 over.

You have a picture of your Concorde? I'd love to see it.
