Looks fantastic and I love that you built it with Record 10 speed!

Are there any hills where you live because that cassette gearing looks TIGHT!

"Eagle eyes" pritchet74 -- That's certainly an eye for detail!!!

Just got a new 10speed cassette in today's delivery and have just finished switching out the old straight block (we used to call them "corncob freewheels/cassettes" in the 70/80s!) for a 12-25. Nothing too extended in terms of climbing around here but still ...

Been enjoying this new addition to the family tremendously! It's been many years since I've had a steel bike in the regular rotation of rides and I feel very fortunate ...

From this weekend's ride, parked in front of a little country church's steps.

Set up looks perfect. Enjoy the ride. When I got mine was worried about it being to stiff, but it really rides great. Rides lighter than it actually weighs to me.

Yes, the all black bits really let the frame and paint design stand out. I think Dario would be pleased.

That is an incredible Peg. Love the color and the black components. Simply stellar.

I'm not so sure, just look at that seatpost!

I think any bike of his that was ridden hard and enjoyed would make Dario happy. Seatpost setback often is about saddle rails. It’s very subjective but to my eye, that’s a very balanced set-up. It’s all good!

What a lovely response!

Sure Dario preferred offset seatposts, but full enjoyment of his bicycles was likely his first priority and proper fit is foremost in that equation. I'm assuming that macaroon was just joshing, but I appreciate your re-orienting us to what is most important Climb!

I agree - I'd wondered how stiff it would feel but it's quite comfortable for me and it certainly "rides lighter" than its actual weight.

That's a gorgeous bike--I love the paint job! What sorts of wheels are those? My Duende build should be ready by the coming weekend.

Sorry Lucasf- just saw this! They are Reynolds DV 46 tubulars. An old set ... that bike shares a matching pair of DV46s in clinchers too, depending on the mood.

Without a doubt the best "deal" out there for a great set of used tubular wheels. I picked up 2 sets last year because they were so cheap! Very strong, light, great ride quality - what's not to love about the Reynolds DV46 (Stratus) wheels!!!
