Just Chorus / Centaur, good enough for me!

Chain is on the biggest ring front and back so it's looks a bit stretched out whilst I was cleaning it, usually don't run this gear on the road.

A little upgrade on the bike. I´ve fitted a San Marco Concor Light, great confort, lightness and looks. I think my quest for the perfect saddlle for this bike is over. I will also change the wheels, found a very good deal on a Ultegra wheelset, hopefully by tomorrow I will have another upgrade to show.

A lovely bit of restoration and nice to see another TCR thread...one of my favourite bikes, 'back in the day' - here's mine, from last year. Still stuck indoors and waiting for some sunshine and a proper ride out.

You've got it spot on now, the bike was crying out for those wheels. very nice!!!

I feel terrible, mine has been sideline due to forthcoming house move, am putting the ONCE on hold but probably going ahead with the silver one for a daily ride.

Just upgraded the fork. Look HSC2 full carbon, weighs 350 grams. Better handling, shock absorbing and looks. Really awsome. Bike is with 8,160 Kg.

Yes, and LOOKs great, to :)

Now I must think of ways to trim about 170 grams in order to go bellow the 8 Kg mark, without spending to much money. A carbon crankset would resolve, but most of them are a bit expensive.
