The 3Rensho is gone! Odd that it was the first out the door, but I got a good price for it.

.....and now I am talking to Peter White about some wheels. I am thinking White Industries hubs and Velocity Aerohead with the O/C version on the back. I slapped some Dura Ace and Ultegra stuff I have up on eBay now on it and silver looks great....but I think I am pretty much set on doing this one ALL BLACK with Chorus. Yum.

Just got off the phone with Peter White, who built thousands of wheelsets for Fat City back in the day. http://www.peterwhitecycles.com/

My order: Campy-specific White Industries H2/3 hubs in silver, silver double butted spokes, brass nipples, and Velocity Aerohead and Aerohead O/C in gray. 32 in front 36 in back. Woo!

The Aerohead O/C is good for Campy needs, but it means that there are no good smaller gauge spokes for the shorter side of the wheel available in black. So...I abandoned the stylish all-blackness and went for silver and gray. I might still change my mind and get black rims though.....

Now that I am going with the silver high polished WI hubs....my mind is starting to wander to the lovely Athena baubles. Too bad that the shifting was 'downgraded' for 2011....then again, it would be my first modern Campy setup. Maybe I wouldn't even notice.


But dang, this is hot.

I went with the dark, modern side. ....there's a 2011 Chorus group heading my way.

In the meantime, I was perusing the IF site, and found that my frame is gracing their website!

And I'll upload a screenshot for posterity.
