Ride #2 was a total success. I feel fast and good. All I can ask for..

And yet I'll still be playing with the build some more. Natch.

This is gorgeous.
I think (I could be wrong) but Erik picked up a lot of Carl Strong's geo and that 8cm bb drop is going to make that bike rail on descents.
I vote for Record 11; Campy and contemporary steel = Sexy Bika.

Very well could be true. I liked these wheels on there, so I think I'll stick with Campag on it - that's a Record 11-25 cassette, a 12T is close at the dropout. I have some Record shifty bits and brakes I could use on it. And I should have a Rotor Aldhu 36/52 with a BSA-30 BB showing up that'll go well too. It has room for 28s, but I liked the feel of the 25s today. Tied a PR in a 25sec uphill sprint on it today, and I'm not exactly at race-weight right now. Good times.

Nice, the 6'3" I saw musta been with the coifed hair... Although, I didn't think bike-racers embellished their height the way most point-guards do.

Here's my stats:

Rider height: 1.92m/6'3"

Saddle height: 83cm
Tip of saddle to center of bar: 61.5cm

This is a good looking bike man, green is great, great proportions for a big bike, R8000 looks perfect on it too.

Awesome spec Dan!

I would try out the darker brown bar tape and saddle on it. Love how it sets it off against a green frame.

Enjoy the miles!

Good idea. Maybe some day I can get some of that nice handlebra stuff..

I put another solid ride in on it yesterday, and I just love how the frame feels and handles overall. It's a great bike. Climbs well, descends even better. And the lower front end means I'm #faster_everywhere.. Gotta love them free aero gains.

I'm a fan of Adarga leather bar tape. Beautiful colors, reasonably priced. The guy behind it is a racer whose family runs a large leather company in Milwaukee. I met him and picked up some of their white tape in person at their facility. No fancy showroom -- this is a real tanning/production facility with the tape as a side project. Relatively inexpensive (compared to HBra) way to see how it looks and I bet you'll like the feel.

Wonder if they'd recover an SMP for me

No need for Campy- no-nonsense bikes look best with Shimano groupsets, IMO. I recall seeing a very nice Alliance on the thread across the hall that somehow managed to make Ultegra 6700 look good. These bikes have a workmanlike quality that is complimented by similar parts.

Fair point. Though I did just pick up a Chorus group that's 36/52 and that would work mighty well on here, leaving the Record bits for my Kirk. Will see.
