Very nice build some very nice parts on there! Personally I would put a black Kore Elite stem on it they look a lot more tidy, but thats just me!

Thanks all for the compliments! This one has been on my list of must haves for a long time and now that it's done it can join the ranks and get regular workouts with the rest of my collection.

@gtRTSdh The cranks are Sweet Wings by Sweet Components and I think theyre from '94 or '95. They're made of tubular steel and are crazy light. The designer is still making bike parts under the eecycle Works name but has moved to the road arena.

@CHASE76 The stem is the only part of the build I'm not 100% sold on but it was here and it fit.

Here are a couple shots from last night's ride more will come over the weekend when I get a chance to dial everything in.
