Although 25 or 26 years old, I occasionally upgrade the components and continue to enjoy. Sur every once in a while I lust after the latest and greatest carbon offer, but in the end there's no reason to move on.

That thing is frickin' gorgeous. Is that a Columbus Foco tubeset?

By they way, did you figure out your headset bearing situation with the Paris-Robaix? And...more details on THAT bike if you would!

It's actually the Ti Megatube. Columbus Hyperon Ti. The down tube is Ti foil laid over s shaped ribs and the to sheets are welded along the top and bottom seam running the length of the "tube".
I'm still working out the Paris Roubaix. I'm thinking I may be trying to tighten the headset too much. I need to get it to the point wheels and brakes are installed. Then I can give it the wiggle check to get the headset just tight enough where there's no play.

That is COOL. The shape of the downtube is what made me hazard that particular guess.

What year is the Paris-Robaix? I've always wanted to ride a bike with the Corsa Cambio system. I gather that yours has the one-lever system?
