hard to believe but I've been waiting for more than 8 weeks for two black Araya RM20 rims from California! :shock: :? Now I give up and will look for other rims for my bullseye hubs.

Today I finally found time to improve my cockpit

Image

I'm no longer quite young and need angle in the cockpit :mrgreen: the new and the old A.TAC

At the tire you're right but the Mavic rims are good and will remain so :wink:

Now with Panaracer smoke/dart special edition (extra thick 2.25) from 1991!

This build is done :D

Just saying the rims don't match the build from a period correct perspective.
