I've been browsing and checking out everyone elses builds for a while now and thought it was about time I posted one of mine.
I'm not sure how this will go down as it will end up a bit outragous. I really love retro frames but i'm not a lover of retro finishing kit. What i'm going to build is carboned out retro single speed bike.
The build should be complete by March but I thought I would get the thread started now.
The build is going to be pretty outragous. It's a lovely old Eddy Merckyx frame which will be built up with deeeep carbon clichers, carbon chainset, seatpost etc. It should look very stealthy indeed.
Should be some good progress over the weekend. Have allot of the parts already, just a few issues to sort before they can be fitted.
This is the frame as purchased.
Forks removed. Threadless headset fitted. Carbon bottle cages fitted. FSA Carbon chainset fitted.
