Caution! Road content, don't proceed any farther if you will be offended.

So here is my main road ride...

96 rwracing road frame, built of 853 top and seat tube, 4130 aircraft downtube, OX3 stays and Breezer dropouts. I built this as my main road frame as I was building another for a similarly sized customer and never got around to putting gears on it. Nothing spectacular for parts...

Raceface turbine LP cranks
Shimano 600 hubs
Salsa quill stem
Scott drop in bars
Mavic headset
Kinesis aluminum fork

I've got another frame sitting in the wings with vintage Mavic Parts and Campy Record Delta brakes...maybe next season.

very, very, sharp looking & a fine shade of blue to boot 8) .

Think I can detect a few mtb vibes in the frame there (such as the extended seat tube?)

I geussing your not runnig a fixed wheel was you've got brakes f&r?

Very sharp - you can definitely see the MTB influence as tangent mentions.

Look forward to seeing your next road project - old time mavic and campag deltas are classic bits of kit.
