Well, here are a couple for those not on IG..

20+ mph swirling winds in the hills today - a sheltered photo shoot was a welcome break to gather my resolve.

Some of my best rides evah were on a fillet Kirk with wheels similar to yours:

I'm messing around with aero wheels on it right now (and they're fine), but I really need to get the old school wheels out of the bike room and back into action.

I came so close to stealing your colorway - but in the end I had to respect it and go original.. Yours is absolutely gorgeous. Dig the bars too. I do feel like the Ritcheys are a little small in the drops for me - those 3T Tornovas might be the ticket. I do love the ride of the Nemesis with the 27c Vlaanderens - not a huge fan of the braking on them though. I have some Belgium tubulars laced to silver WI T11 hubs I'll be putting on here before too long - or maybe use my tubeless Pacenti/WI-T11 pair at some point. All part of the fun!

Awesome color choices to both of you.

I am also going with the 3T Tornova handlebars because they were as close as I could find to the Nitto Noodle bars I’ve been loving on the rando steed. I can let you know how I like them and post a photo of how they look. Dave’s lovely creation for me arrives Friday for assembly to begin!

I run pretty light for my rando setup. The attached photo was my setup this year for a 600k, 1000k and 1200k. Batteries have gotten to the point where you're probably fine with them for most rides, but I don't like the stress of worrying how much battery I might have left or which thing I need to keep plugged in. I generally ride with my Wahoo plugged in, and once the sun goes down, I unplug it and turn on the front/rear dyno lights.

I'll be sure to post the final build once it's finished!

Since I don't do front racks, I prefer my lights to be on the fork crown. I went disc for this reason so that I didn't have to deal with caliper mounts + light mounting.

Magical. Did you do one up that you've ridden already, or is this that first one?

Stainless?

I love the subtle dimple for rotor clearance.

Yes - I have ridden one. This is the first built for a customer. It is steel and not stainless.

The dimple is there for clearance as the wheel is installed. It clears without the dimple with the wheel installed but I wanted to be 100% sure that the rotor wouldn't rub the paint when the wheel is being slipped into place.

Back to the bench.....
