...well, almost.

Some of you might remember the frame...

and after http://forums.roadbikereview.com/showthread.php?t=204588

repainting.

Now, here's the bike. Will swap the saddle. That Flite is comfortable, but it's not white. The white one was a test saddle just meant to make the bike rideable. The hoods will have to go as well, and will be replaced by these

Otherwise, it's finished.

Some of the pictures were taken with my cell phone, will post better ones and a ride report soon.

Ciao a tutti,


TS

WARNING!

I had a set of White campy hudz. After only 1 season they turned smoker's tooth yellowz. Couldn't be cleaned.

In other news: that's a great build.

Very nice...thanks for sharing. :)
Looks like a very nice road too.
to all who replied, thanks for your comments.

Kuma, yes, it's a very nice road, and definitely more suitable for the pictures' atmosphere than my white garage door!

That's one sexy bike! Nice job. I don't think I'd personally have the patience to piece it all together, so nice work!!

I love Flites! Have them on all my road bikes. Hey...does anyone else notice the covering gets kind of loose near the front of the rails, like back from the nose and on the sides? Happening on a few of mine and not sure if I should try to reglue them or just leave well enough alone.

Oh...and as for Hudz. I have white ones that are about a year old and they are still nice and clean. I wash them around once a week with dish soap on a rag. I wear gloves sometimes, sometimes bare hands when riding.

But, a word of caution on them - mine aren't quite as snug as the original Campagnolo hoods and when I stand up to pedal they wrinkle on the sides. Like they aren't form fitting on the shifters so bunch up. Nothing terrible or ride-ruining, but thought I'd mention it. Mine are on 2007 shifters, forgot the model #.

Anyway, awesome build up job! No matter how much I see Flites and Ciussi cages, I still love them;)

Ride-fly, it's a 55. Jos 123, yes it's a beautiful place, but nothing spectacular, typical for luxembourg with lots of rolling hills. However, the weather was exceptionally nice that day. It's very rainy here.
