Yup -- now to save up the scratch to buy it with the matching bottom bracket...

Oh, and I forgot to post pics of the superdupersweet Paul comp skewers I picked up for it. I got one of the first sets of the new 25th anniversary skewers Paul released recently. Just my luck too because of all the colors they could have chosen for these, they chose orange

I want a set. Wish they were just black and silver, but I would still ride them.

Only bike I've liked those skewers on so far!

Ha - thanks. I say go for it -- it's a beautiful stem. Like all Nitto stuff, the Fairweather/Nitto stem I received is beautifully made.

A BURD on a bike is better than two in the...bush?? lol

Gorgeous build and I hope it rides as good as it looks! The BURD derailleur is very cool. In fact all the retroshift stuff is cool.

Well done!

Thank you kindly. It definitely rides as good as it looks, and I'm totally not biased. At all.

I really like the Retroshift stuff too. Cool parts, local to me and the owner/founder is a really great dude. As noted I did opt to switch to D.A. downtube shifters and rear derailleur for this bike but that was not because of any issue or anything with the Retroshift stuff. The Retroshift parts were perfect and worked exactly as they should. They just didn't "fit" where my vision for this bike was. That stuff will live on a new bike. Soon.

Picked up a new saddle for the Cielo - excited to try this one out! I've only heard great things about the Cambium and I feel it'll be a very appropriate saddle aesthetically for this bike.


I also must admit I'm considering a new wheelset for this bike... I happened to pick up a beautiful pair of Dura Ace 7800 hubs recently. Front is NOS and the rear is very very lightly used. Anyone have any good suggestions on rims to lace them to for this bike? So far I'm thinking either H Plus Son TB14 or HED Belgium, but not at all set on that.

You may want to consider (our very own) Kirk Pacenti rims...

Can you explain the use of the shifting device on the right brake hood?
Thanks in advance.

I have heard very good things about the Pacenti rims. They are on the short list for sure.

Oh yeah, and, installed the Cambium. It's excellent. Took it on a 40 mile ride for the first ride on the Cambium and am really liking it. Much more comfortable over longer rides than either of the Fizik saddles I'd had on the Cielo previously.
