Probably my slowest ever project. Acquired frame in 2007 just before moving house, and lost the decals from Cyclomondo for over 18 months in the process...

Sourcing the fork took 3 years! Brakes the same..... But here she is.

Apologies for size of pics - anyone with the right html code to make them smaller, please tell me how.

Frame: Alan Cyclocross 1989

Fork: Alan Cyclocross unknown year - didn't come with frame. And the reason for the wait before finally unveiling.

Headset: 7410 Dura-Ace. Shimano 600 cable stop. "Correct" Mavic headset won't allow fitting of cable stop.
Stem: Mavic
Handlebar: Cinelli Criterium
Tape: Cinelli


Brakes: Weinmann Mafac rip-offs
Brake Pads: Aztec
Brake Cables: Shimano
Cantilever cable hangers: Weinmann
Brake Levers: Early 90s Campag
Shifters: Ultegra-8 speed barcons
Front Derailleur: Mavic
Rear Derailleur: Mavic
Derailleur Cables: Shimano
Cassette: Aris 7-speed 13-26
Chain: Wippermann
Cranks: Mavic 631 Starfish
Crank Bolts: Royce
Chainrings: Stronglight 48/38
Chainring bolts: Mavic
Bottom Bracket: Royce 113
Pedals: Look S2

Nipples: DT
Spokes: DT Competition.
Tyres: Schwalbe CX-Pro 30mm (OK modern)

.. and looking lovely. Is that aluminium tubing bonded to alu lugs? It's a beautiful frame to look at. A quick search on Google revealed this http://www.alanbike.net/2010-2011/road-2010-2011/mito in naughty carbon fibre, but with the paint scheme nicely echoing the lugged design of your bike.

Yes lovely. RE: A Mavic seatpost (pin to you).

The most beautiful I'd seen before I saw a similar-era Dura-Ace. And maybe still, because I haven't seen the Mavic every day (or at all) in almost two years.

Still, I am sure the Dura-Ace is available in a 25mm size -- I have a spare -- but am doubtful the Mavic of the beautiful design available in 27.2mm size was available as a 25mm.
