Newbie question: I like to make to jump to setl but like it light for long climbs, is it remotely physically possible to have a Steel bike with disc that is sub 8-9kg without breaking the bank??

Yes that is easy to do but you have to be smart with your choices. Also depends on the builder and how you work with them.

Baum uses PPG paint.

Yep
Agreeing with @coreyaugustus, nice bike and awesome color! The mix of black and silver works for me, especially since you used a crank with silver rings. Gives me hope to find my old Stronglight Pulsion crank a home on a vintage build.

If you ever want to ditch that quill stem for threadless, PM me.

New steel, no less. 333fab road made from Columbus Spirit. 7.7kg as it sits.

I put 150km on her and all I can say is rock solid, stable descended, and just fun to push hard. The paint is truly sublime.

I even did a bit of gravel, the Veloflex Vlaanderen are superb.

I have this coming, no WW but can't wait to build it up! A possible repaint required but will confirm when it arrives...

Don't repaint it unless you replicate its current color. It is an anniversary model in very good condition.
Great find BTW! Which tubeset? Columbus Genius?

If a repaint is required it will be exactly the same, there are a couple of scratches I can see but will find out in a couple of days. I'm not exactly sure of the tubing other than Columbus Nivacrome? I'll be building it up with a Campagnolo 10 speed Record groupset with down tube shifters. I'm still deciding whether I put dual pivot brake calipers or delta's on?

I think that sti shifters would look more 'correct' on this frame, especially since you go for 10 speeds. In this case dual pivot brakes are fine.

The frame is from 1989 so I decided to stick with down tube shifters, using 10 speed Record will mean I can ride it regularly and not be too worried about replacement parts. I have some new Ergolevers but prefer the look of DT shifters.

It will sort of be a neo-retro style.
