My next bike

Someone should guess the builder pretty quick. She should be getting built over the next week.

You called it. A post I picked up from you will be part of the build. This project has been in the works for a while. The finish is Birch.

She's off to the "shop" to hopefully get built up over the weekend. I'm really excited about this since it's a project that I've been contemplating for several years and been working on for quite a while. We are going to be a Moots RSL Disc built up with Campy DR12EPS DB, Shamal Wheels (WTOs weren't available), a 3T Ergonova Bar, Enve Stem and Post, Fizik Arione (subject to getting swapped out for whichever Selle Italia saddle I'm told is best for me) and Favero Duo pedals. The cages will be Arundel Mandible off of the Sarto Dinamica I'm looking to sell. At first, the tires will be GP5000TL, but I may need to swap them out for Italian tires. This is going to ultimately be all Italian parts on an U.S. built frame.

What inspired all of this was when Campy and Moots collaborated with a Moots RSL Disc built with Camp SR EPS DB and an etched finish. It was just so awesome to see in the internet, but then I got to see it in person because Tom Kattus (called the Pope and long-time head of Campy N.A.) was riding it. I was longing for something that awesome, but not exactly the same. Hence the Birch finish instead of etched).

This may end up as the coolest bike I've ever owned for a while. I won't be at all sad if I think my next steel "new" bike is even better. I'm hoping that one will feel like a light saber.

This is a far more reasonable pursuit than all the cars that were really cool when I was in high school. Plus, I'm pretty sure things like a Ferrari F40 and Porsche 959 are still way, way, way out of my price range. After all, I don't want to go all basic bitch and think about a Lamborghini Countache, which I've heard was actually uncomfortable and didn't handle well. I don't care about the Lambo, but I'd sure as F love a 1990s Merckx.

love that finish of all the new anodized finishes,the logos in particular.sorry but I still cant warm up their new 3d printed dropouts.maybe better in some way but sadly just not nearly as pleasing to the eye as the breezer dropouts imo.
gonna be a great bike though! congrats

I like Enve...but a moots needs a moots ti stem.

I do like the low topcap though.

At some point I may go to a Moots stem and post, but I need to be completely sure of stem size before sinking that kind of extra money in. I picked up the Enve stuff on the forum and it will match about anything whereas the Moots stuff will really only work on this bike. It’s well beyond a #firstworldproblem.

agree with you there... RSL stems are kinda over priced...I have to get another seat post myself down the road since the one I have is for round rails.

The RSL stems are crazy expensive. It’s even hard to rationalize the regular Moots stem as anything other than jewelry for your bike with a higher bling factor than carbon.
