bare naked lady! The color turned out great, although a bit more 'periwinkle' than blue. but that actually works out as it was originally 'blast berry'

the seat post is getting changed out also to a US made omni carbon setback....love the Thomson, but time for a change. sticking with the Campy record 8 speed....although went with the dura-ace front derailleur as I never could find a 34.9 Campy clamp-on

that's coming together nicely!
what size tyres are you using?

Is that a nice R spec volvo i see in the background?
I always wanted a Green 850 T5-R Estate (wagon), or a V70 R but went practical and got a SAAB instead!

I ride schwalbe 28's...always have ridden large tires. Contrary to popular belief, actually get a smaller road contact with the bigger tires.


good eye....it is indeed an VR....and tweaked......but this is the wrong forum for that... :) but suffice it to say, it isn't stock....

cables and seat pots in today! finish the build tonight

I think that with a more modern campy 10s group it would stay lovely. Also some sram rival in black
