You need to get that beauty out of the city on to some good country roads to really put it through its paces!
Thanks! I'll post the build spec sheet later, so you can see the exact tubing.

I try to get out of the city on weekends, but have been doing a good amount of trail running races, that have kept my bike mileage fairly low sadly.

Welcome to the forum!
Beautiful Waterford!! Love the polished stainless stays and lugs!!

Excellent choice on components too! I'm a Campy fan too!

Hope the ride is as amazing as the looks!

Wow.... and 63cm ctc.

I think I'm glad I missed it... too much other unfinished business

Figured I'd update this, in case anyone is having similar issues as I, regarding brake caliper clearance. My Campagnolo Record calipers were not providing ideal clearance for the Continental Grand Prix 4 Seasons 28mm, so after much research, I decided to try an eeBrake G4 Caliper. I just bought the front caliper, to see if indeed the clearance was better, and it is def cherry! So, I ordered the rear caliper and Campagnolo Carbon pads (for Shimano holders) this morning.

I was sorta unsure of the aesthetics of the eeBrake, but wow, in person they are beautiful...and suit the bike quite nicely, IMO.

Also, thanks for all the kind feedback thus far

I built it up with a Campagnolo Record groupset, Campagnolo Bora Ultra Wheels, Deda Elementi Superleggero RS Seatpost, Zipp Service Course SL Stem / Handlebar.
Nice bike. Nicer neighborhood. UWS?

(i thought photos would show, too, particularly the first one of the brownstones across the street.)

I did for a long time. W75th, then W107th. UWS, with access to CP and RSP, is the most livable part of city, IMO. Gorgeous block you have there. Enjoy it and the ride!
