Next weekend I hope when the esteemed MrCrumb drops my wheels off (Mavic MA6 I believe, of which neither I nor Google know anything at all, except that getting tyres on is a royal pain, apparently).
Stem (a thing of beauty, very excited) and post are on-route and that's everything I think. So I might get overexcited and pay MrCrumb a visit if I can't contain myself!
Anyway, now with added TurtleWax, brakes and considerably scrubbed-up Mirage mechs. Not totally period correct, but in the ballpark. Sort of. Not glaringly wrong at least. I hope.
Oh, BB, cranks & pedals too
Desperately hoping the stem arrives Saturday so I can get the bar & levers on and start cabling up...
Nice, I love these old CFRs. I had a 1995 Cadex CFR3 which was identical to the purlpe one in this catalogue (see link). You'll notice some were supplied with Campagnolo groupsets, I had Veloce on mine and a aftermarket time carbon threadless fork to replace the alloy one that the early models came with. http://www.retrobike.co.uk/gallery2/d/10847-2/Giant_Cadex.pdf?g2_GALLERYSID=17dfef34d6cbfc7e2fc8e1f80b52b7a8
I really didn't want to sell it but had to make way for other projects. I'm a bit of a Giant fan and have an OCR as my daily ride and 3 TCRs in varying states of completion including an ONCE team replica and a Mike Burrows kitted out 1996 TCR (rare).
If you need a mirage compact I have a 175mm in black I can sell you but I think your silver chainset looks much better.
Make sure you post pics when it's done, I'm looking forward to seeing the finished article
