Top work with the build and the pics. Good to see something of Chris early work covered.

Neat tight clearance. Looks like a Criterium machine ready for the job. Is it? :)

I made a write up for a mag on FAT last month. The Witcomb tie was also mentioned.

Nice job done. Definitly one for rBotM. All Shimano Dura Ace, except for the Campagnolo rims... :wink:

And the headset, which was the last original bit that came with the frame :)

Very sweet indeed, the guides under the bottom bracket are a lovely touch. Top quality photos too. Did these frames come without downtube decals?

Regarding shoes, some lace up Sidis would be spot on although a pair of http://www.dromarti.com/index.php?main_ ... ucts_id=16 wouldn't be totally out of place.

Wow---those are really nice. And cool to be able to use clipless with them.

Thanks for the props! The cable guides are really nicely done. Next time I head out I can flip 'er over and get a better shot. As for the dt stickers, the original owner had it built up without them. I asked him about it when I purchased the frame and he said he liked the clean look better. If it wasn't in such nice original shape paint-wise it would be nice to get a set.

Just curious about the decals really as it does look super clean as it is.

I don't have a pair of the Dromarti's but I have tried some on and they felt very comfortable and seemed extremely well made. As I guess they should for the price.

Thanks! I'd love to take a look at it--the yellow in the logos/back might look neat.

And, a belated public thanks to Mel (Elev12k) for supplying one of the damned little wires that had been lost in transit with my shifters!!
