You know, I almost grabbed that group, decided I should wait a bit, came back last evening and saw your post. Glad I waited, as this bike deserves Campy!

Now I have to add Rolf to my list....

Switched wheels out to these Altamont / WI T11 and went to a SS RD w/ 11/30. Not sure how I like the Boyd's just yet. And I'm planning to go back to Thomson stuff on it. Need to play with the cages to get them aligned better too. Minor trifles though.

Overall, I really dig how this one jams. A lovely steel ride if ever there was one. It's fun to have the opportunity to give it some solid miles while we're having some cold dry days out here.

Me too.

Gumwalls and silver-spoked handbuilts are a mega plus.

Super. Can you tell what is the outside diameter of your downtube please? Bike looks very proportionate.

I don't know, and don't have a good way to measure since it's so shaped. If you're really curious, I'd check Alliance's site for the frame specs and/or shoot Eric a quick note. It rides very, very well.

Yep, 27.2 and seems to have quite a sleeve in the seat-tube - though it's a 31.8 FD clamp iirc.

Edit: FD clamp

The Downtube is 38.1mm with a bi-oval shape.

The seattube is 31.8mm with a shim bonded in for a 27.2mm seatpost. Sometimes I'll weld a seat collar in instead of the shim, but it's a heavier solution. This is one of my Race Day Road framesets, so saving that extra weight is important on this model.

Thanks,

Erik

Yes ----> https://forums.thepaceline.net/showt...light=Alliance

It's now in the capable hands of a forum-pal up in Seattle - though with their weather the last month, it probably hasn't seen the asphalt too much...
