Cannot wait for this build. Seems like a wee bit of EPQ inflation, no?

Keep the Reynold wheels without decals at least. Thomson stem not a great idea...

Why not a 3T Arx Pro ? the white stripe would go well with the frame, and they do it in 13cm. I have one I used on my EP 54.

Agree with SalsaLover on the stem. Skip Thomson

@Davec, LOL, you misunderstood... as in from nothing we are now having several EPQ builds appear on WW. No comments about price intended, my friend.

Put on all of the components last night just need to fine tune all of the angles, route the cabling and wrap the bars!

Had to drop the dv46 off for some repairs so I've got these mv32s on loan from a buddy.

Looking great! I love this paint scheme!

Minor question... Have you considered losing the spacer and going to -8 instead of -17 on the stem? It could keep stem more in line with top tube.

Overall just great and I'm excited to see how it wraps up. I'm assuming white bartape is forthcoming?

I had that exact same bike in a 58 sloping - which was too big - so i got a c59 in 56 sloping - which seems just right. That frame is sweet - rides great and will ALWAYS look classic.

Enjoy and ride the hell out of it.

I took your advice and tried a 120mm -7 deg stem I had and you're right, looks much better. Now I've got to find a 130mm ! It's an excuse to get a 3T arx.

Here's a low quality pic from tonight:
