I sourced a white sakae chainset/cranks with black chainrings from another Eclipse (mine had an identical one in silver for some reason, i always preferred the look of the original and i wanted the silver set for my kelloggs!)
Also fitted ivory wall michelin pro4 race tyres, 8 speed Sachs freewheel, cane creek scr5 brake levers, titanium skewers, black carbon slr xp saddle, cateye wireless computer, and i had the BB and headset serviced at the LBS. the bike now weighs 10.6kg.
I got some escort eclipse decals shrunk and done in dark red for the maintube, they suit it really well.
It has got the 130mm backend so i'm thinking of fitting a modern wheelset, i read somewhere that a 10speed cassette on modern wheel/hub will fit, is this correct? And will i be able to fit a 10speed indexed downtube shifter (the rear mech is modern shimano alivio long cage with large chain pulleys). I realise i'll need a 10speed chain.
