Waterford RS-22

Got the frameset from eBay, built it with Dura Ace 7900 parts and Wh-9000 wheelset.

That seat lug looks a little over tightened, waterfords used to take a 27.4 seatpost. If you have a 27.4 frame over tightened on a 27.2 post it will damage the frame.

Cool bike.

Cool bike.

I pulled out the seatpost, measured inner diameter of the seatlug.

It's 27.2mm

Cool, I would probably call Waterford with the serial number just to check, but maybe I am just paranoid.

Stainless headlugs, fast back stays and current decal set indicate modern 22 so would have 27.2 id.

Cool bike, always loved building the ones with stainless lugs! I may have built that one too, if so, it will have my initials (DW) stamped just behind the plastic cable guide under the bottom bracket, kinda between the chainstay sockets.

As for the seatpost, I think based on the design of the seatlug this one is 27.2mm.

Yep. Can't beat that provenance.

Beautiful. We need a better shot of that front end though.

That is so cool, made me check my RS-22 ...

And Dave Wages built it also ... I had not thought to check. January 2001 was the build.
