Why has this been moved from Road Cycling? I was really enjoying this thread :-(

Fondriest SF2 with Athena-11, Ritchey Classic components, and Campy Bora's with FMB tires...
Came in right over 16 lbs and a much stiffer ride than I expected for a steel fork steed.
Hope you enjoy:

@Cippo, are you running a fork tube extender?
I have 2 steel frames i am about to build and am tossing up between a quill stem or ahead with an adaptor.
Wish someone would make a 1" stem with all the retro builds going on now.
1 1/8" looks too bulky I.M.H.O

Although an ahead stem is much easier to setup than a quill stem, I absolutely prefer the look of a quill stem over that of an ahead stem on skinny steel frames IMHO. Ahead stems are simply too bulky. Just get yourself a nice Deda Murex or even better, a Cinelli Grammo.

This is the frame i will be building up.
Obviously not as a fixie. If anyone has details about Daccordi would be helpful.

Although not built as a Weight Weenie being our rough and tumble demonstrator bike we were happy with the 8.3 kgs on our KVA stainless, lugged build. The only carbon is that of the standard Chorus groupset and Fizik seatpost. We have someone looking at getting one of our frames and doing the whole Enve build thing with 1.25s, fork, stem, seatpost, bars so if that goes ahead I would really look forward to throwing that on the scales.

Stunning, could you please post a full side view?

Wow, really pretty bikes on here! Still waiting for my new scale to show up. Ordered a Park and should be here any day so I can finally get an up to date weight posted up (with picture!).

@ GASer: the Tommasini turned out really nice :thumbup: ! One thing that I don't really like are the graphics on the crankset. A guy on the Retrobike forum did some nice work on an Athena crankset. Maybe he can do something for you too. Check it out here: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=180340&start=0


wow, preety cool.
