Can't swing a dead Ottrott around here...

without hitting a Paceliner.

First off, I need to say that I feel sorta sheepish about this whole thing. I know that had Clancy been healthy enough to ride this thing it was his grail bike, and I feel blessed that I caught it when he gave it up. It was impeccably packed, and while I know its not NOS it would pass.

So, when these bikes were new I was between a legal and a restaurant career, and couldn't even tease myself with one. So I ignored them. But the market now what it is, I couldn't resist a perfect Ottrott for less than 2k all in, not counting parts on hand. It helped that I finally acknowledged that my c40 was a size too big.

This sob fits like someone had me on the fitcycle. I know folks had questions when the ad was posted but yeah, s/n is 53 but it has a 50ish tt effective. Its the only bike in my stable where I can fit a proper 11 cm stem.

Its built. SR11 thanks to the brouhaha thread, a quarq that was here, as were the bars and ee brakes. Wheels will go back and forth between the ccu's (Yay! Vlandeerens fit this frame!!) Lightweight 3's (thx again justin) and some uglified Ventoux's. I did candy red on the stripped cranks- those of you who know this color know that photos don't capture it, but thing 50's candy apple red over carbon.

No weight or glamor shots. I pretty much suck at bike photography. But a couple of teasers from tonight.

Congratulations and enjoy the ride. It will be buttery smooth.
The front end looks kind of steampunk to me...pretty cool.

Wow well done Greg. You gave it the build it deserved. Nice personal touches too. Welcome to the club!

What bar tape did you use?

Cheers

I love the title of your post and that bike is pretty sweet too. I’ve always wanted one myself. Congratulations and please post more photos.

Photos of complete bike. Still needs a longer stem. Ride report will have to wait as its sloppy here. Color balance on the photos is a little cranked to capture the red in the frame.

Pretty happy w/ the weight, 6.8kg with a heavy saddle.

That’s a gorgeous bike. I’ll keep an eye out for it if these roads ever dry up.

Very pretty.

I notice that you've got the shifter cables crossing, is that standard for you? it makes for a cleaner cockpit so I've flirted with the idea but was always concerned about the cables rubbing and possibly affecting shifting.

Nice looking ride. Good looking pooch too.

Finally figured it out, that's why Froome stares at his stem. He has a similar cap.

Enjoy.
