One of my favorite rides. I wanted to do a full Mavic Group but never found a 25.0 Mavic Seatpost. Other than that its fully realized...

Very nice.

My mind keeps going "it's modern", "it's old", "it's modern".....

With those Zipps and lots of black it looks modern but then that lovely old chainset hits your eye....

Mark.

I really like this. Has a cool ´future of yesterday´ vibe to it, like a Delorean. Looks like it wants to go fast too.

Fantastic build there!

Always liked the Modolo/Mavic groupset parts.

I always wanted this bike growning up watching the La Vie Claire riders.
When this came out. My budget was more in line with entry Panasonic, or Bridgestone etc., of the era. My goal was to build a bike that would be symbolic of the growing carbon tech without kiling the looks of the frame. I have a hard time with the starfish crankset. Just personal taste. So I went with the Mavics pictured.
