Did you happen to weigh the wheels? I've been thinking of doing exactly the same wheels myself.

Hmm...I'm not sold on the seat post being white, rather a polished Campy but regardless I think it looks GREAT! :thumbup:


+1

I think the white seatpost gives the whole bike a bit different look to a classic one. But you can still satisfie your curiosity and do it in photshop :thumbup:

My original plan was a black seat post with white saddle but I am very pleased with the result. The seat post looks a bit like an ISP.

Timo,
this is exactly what it looks like.


Usually white components look cheap but this is really well done.

And as a bonus I have a tuned Record 10sp gruppo with ZG's and Powerarms that came off this frameset and is now whispering in my ear at night: start a new project, all you need is another nice frameset :mrgreen:

I was going to say the same thing, it's growing on me. If you had a polished seat post lying around it would be interesting to see how it looks?

Custom steel actually 8)

"Wingnut", I gave that a try after I tried the black seat post and before I decided to send the seat post to the painter too.

Stunning; well done :thumbup:

Any side shots, by the way? This bike needs to go on my blog (with your permission, of course) and side shots work the best :mrgreen:

Timo that is superbly executed. The transition between the seat tube and seatpost looks great. The choice of colour looks superb. The vittoria sc's are a great choice.

38mm carbon hoops don't look shabby either...

Looks great! I wonder how some black sidewall tyres would look? Might go well with the wheels, tape & saddle?

very nice

looks much better with the black spokes and hubs, the old wheels made it a bit of a classic bike
never the less the old wheels are very good quality
the crank matching the groupset makes it more classy compared to a mixed groupset bike
