Finished and had a good solid ride she flys.. Went for full dura ace 7700(calipers 7800).. Have fulcrum 5's on at the moment but have a nice set of hope pro 3's/mavic open/rev spokes being built.. Will use these as April - September wheels and use fulcrum ones for winter duty..

Cheers :)

I really wanted a set of dura ace 7700 hubs/rims to finish her off .. And had a nos set lined up but the more I weighed up the costs and weight I've opted for a custom set of hope pro 3/mavic open pro/rev spokes/alloy nipples.. Should come in under 1600g if listed weights are accurate.. Titanium skewers too will keep weight down..

Hopefully arrive Thursday to finally complete :)

Good weather wheels arrived and fitted.. Bit too bling ? Probably .. But I'm a self confessed bling whore :lol:


Got the wheels from "The spoked wheel" £100 cheaper than anywhere else :shock:

Nice 60 miles this morning and the wheels add a good bit of zip ..

Hey here it is!! turned out very nice, bet those wheels are lovely very good choice of components. This TCR is making me jealous right now. I haven't ridden a bike in over 2 months now with the forthcoming move!! Fingers crossed I'll finally be moving in September and all my projects can come back out of their boxes then. New house has a garage.. he he he

Peachy - that's a top notch looking ride - stellar work all round. You've got the components & colour choices spot on and it looks in absolute top drawer condition!

Just took possession of an older, rough round the edges TCR pro compact - building it up from spares from the parts bin. Mine will be a feral cousin to your pure bred machine!
