Here are some pics of the Hei Hei i´ve been working on lately. It´s not finished yet, and i need some tips and opinions, so it´s time to post some pics and read what do you guys think of it.
The thing is, i´m always worried with building a bike that is period correct, wether there are bling CNC or rusty steel parts to do it.
In this one, from 97, i have a slight dilema which i´m going to share with you guys.
First thing: Pics.
Parts that i´ll keep for sure:
White Industries hubs, 117 ceramic rims, Onza Aggro/Rip
Syncros ti seatpost and bar, Syncros Stem
Proshift brakes and levers
Action Tec BB
Parts i´m not that sure:
Proshift shifters and derailleurs
Cook RSR crankset with Real rings
I think that a good old bike should have period correct components, something that shouldn´t be more than 2 years older or newer.
That said, i have chosen these Cook Bros cranks instead of my Syncros Revolutions. But the thing is, i´m not sure if they look good on the bike. Something about them doesn´t seem right.
The Proshift shifters and mechs have the same problem. I think they are nice, they look nice, and are a great match to the Proshift brakes and levers the bike will have, but...
... everybody knows they don´t work as they should, a complete rubbish...
So, this gets me to a dilema:
M950 is not a real retro groupset to me, even being the most correct to the frame´s age.
M900 is a bit old, and it doesn´t feel right when combined to a Carbon Judy and CNC brakes, for example.
What should you do?
Stick to this, or change crankset to Revolution and gears to somehing more "usable" (but what?)from Shimano or so?
I aprecciate all the opinions i can get. Thank´s in advance.
