*Not my bike!*

Dutch brand Gazelle, well-known for it's stel bikes in the 70's; 80's and 90's has topped the production of racing bikes in 2004 but now they have made a limited set of steel bikes (2 times 125, 125 853 and 125 953 steel) to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the company.
Beautiful combination of lugs and weldings, intregrated and cup/cone headset!

Some steel porn from Holland:

Some final changes just made this last week.

Bars changed for 3T ErgonovaTeam Steath carbon bars
Seatpost changed to Ritchey Superlogic carbon
Wheels changed to Campag Bora Ultra 35's (I'm running a pair of the 50's on my Colnago so this allows me to swap wheels between the two without faffing about with pad changes, brake set-up and so on). These came in at bang on 1360g for the pair (the Mavics weighed 1567g against a claimed 1450g).

So i had my FMoser build changed from this...

...to this:

I know that putting Ultegra R8000 on a classic Italian steel bike isn't really aesthetically pleasing (in my personal opinion the Campagnolo SR/Chorus mix looked way better on the frame) and that I am foregoing Campagnolo's ergonomics and shift mechanics that's arguably the best in the biz. But! I feel I needed this groupset/wheelset sidegrade (or even downgrade hahaha) to force me to ride the bike more regularly again.

I still have one more steel bike tucked somewhere in the house that has a straight Campagnolo Chorus on it. Definitely the Campy on that bike will be a keeper. :D
