Gaulzetti Interclub via Ryun (custom geo)

As many of us have done before, I lusted after one of Ryun’s bikes and this one actually fit me.

I’m told it’s an early production Interclub and it has all the right cool-kid features (isp, threaded bb, mostly internal cabling) that I was looking for. Initial impressions are very good. I’m not surprised that these go for $3k. It looks like it’ll be a rocket ship.

Build plans are up in the air since the “other” bike is in the house and taking the di2 mutt group I pieced together. Probably 8050 and pink WI T11/Belgium+ or even something aero if I had my way. I’ll of course keep everyone updated!

This frame was actually a bit of a consolation prize because the frame I wanted had just sold out from under me...but about a month later it was offered to me again. See last pic for a preview of that (just mocking up the fit).

Excuse the mess, I just moved and haven’t set up benches yet!

Thanks you two, the Interclub is aluminum but the Dreesens is steel. I’m still not sure which to build up first!

Both look like great frames, so it'll be cool to see them put together. Love the green of the Gaulzetti.

After 8 days at sea and between baby naps, I finished building this (mostly).

Needs more cable securing and I really would like a different color hub set but it's really nitpicking. (The red hubs belong on the Dreesens or our red Paketa tandem IMO) The internal cable routing complaint thread was laughable to me after setting up this frame. Getting a junction box into a bike with no open DT for it is a lot of fun (it's in the ST with cables going past the BB). The cables come out right by the shell and run back or up. One of the hardest wiring jobs I've ever done.

Unfortunately I've only taken it around the block but it's way different from any bike I've ever ridden fit-wise and it feels good from a quick trainer spin and that neighborhood ride. Looking forward to trying it out this weekend.

I'm also planning to swap my Grand Prix 4k 23s onto here.

It looks long but feels right. Took it out for a climbing ride with my wife today and it was great. We got blasted by sand blowing off the beach on our way home though so sand all over my brand new chain. Love that. I’ll take some new pics since I tweaked a few things and tidied up the wiring a bunch.

Two questions:

How old are you?
Why do you want 23's?

If you can do it maybe.
With experience, maybe not?

Cool bike btw.
Enjoy

Sorry,
Just looked at your profile.
A few decades difference.
Never mind.

Kick some ass and enjoy that machine.

Simply because I already own them and they're the fastest tires in the stash. I'd probably go one size up next time. On the 25mm wide Belgium+ rims they still blow up nicely and feel great at around 80psi.
