Thought I would post up my daily rider road machine. Since John has been busy collecting parts for his Merckx, I thought I'd post a few pics to show him what classic road bike parts are all about
Seriously though, I built this frame up in the early 90's when the shop was still called RW Racing and spent a few years collecting my old racing kit back up. It's now my daily road ride and is a joy to see the current techies gaze in wonder at the components and state, "I've never seen anything like those before!"
Here's the build...
Frame: Mix of first generation 853 (pirated from Treks dumpsters
,) True Temper OX3, and 4130 with Breezer dropouts and painted in metallic charcoal.
Fork: Easton Carbon aero blade
Headset: Interlock Racing Designs threadless
BB: Interlock Racing Designs sealed bearing
Wheels: Mavic 501 FW with Mavic Open 4 hoops, Conti tires
Freewheel: Sachs 8 speed
Brakes: Campy Record Delta brakes
Levers: Campy Record Carbon/Ball Bearing Ergopower
Post: Thompson (not retro but def functional and clean)
Rides like a bullet (when I've got the legs
) and is a lot of fun.
