I've now (virtually) completed the build as I want it - well enough to be able to ride it anyway - so here it is for you all to see. First impressions are that it rides OK but I've only been round the estate on it so far. I might ride it on Sunday in a 25 mile time trial but I'm leaving my options open on that.

There are threads featuring the frame's origins - ... highlight=

So here are the current specification and details.

Frame and Fork: Reynolds 653 tubing, 22" c-2-t size.

Headset: OMAS Big Sliding
Stem: 3TTT steel Pro Chrome 12cm
Handlebar: Mavic with Profile tri-bars
Bar Tape: Silva cork ribbon

Brake Levers/Brifters: Dia Compe Aero, Ame hoods
Brake Calipers: Front Dia Compe Aero, rear Campagnolo Mirage

Shifters: Currently Shimano DT levers
Front Derailleur: Campagnolo (model??)
Rear Derailleur: Campagnolo (Chorus?)

Block: 7 speed maillard 12-18
Chain: KMC ((9 speed!)
Cranks: Campagnolo Chorus (I think!) 175mm
Chainrings: Campagnolo 53-39
Bottom Bracket: Campagnolo Athena cassette
Pedals: Look carbon

Rims: Front Assos 19mm aero
Rear Wheel: Juna carbon disc
Hubs: Front Mavic
Hub Skewers: Mavic
Spokes: Font wheel bladed aero
Tyres: Tubular. Front Dourdoigne Grand Prix de Nations Silk. Rear Vittoria Corsa CX.

Saddle: Turbo Super (?)
Seatpost: Miche Aero
Seatpost Binder: Allen key

Weight: around 21lbs on my Netto fisherman's scale!

I would like the gear levers on the tri-bars if I can get hold of the correct fitting and also a larger inner chainring around 48/49 tooth. I've advertised in 'Road Wanted' but nothing definite yet!

The rear brake caliper is a Campagnolo one owing to the relative positions of the cable entry into the Dia Compe Aero caliper design and the top tube cable stop. There is to acute an angle on the resulting cable run for the DC one to work efficiently but I think the Campag one looks OK.

That's lovely.

I may be showing my age but that's what a TT bike should look like
