-horizontal dropouts to run SS/fix
-Top routed cables
CXP 30's laced 3x to suzue pro max hubs
Tufo tubular clinchers (sorry I had a flat, bike shown with moskva front wheel)
Raceface SS crank 36:16 SS/ 36:14 fix
Campy carbon record levers
Deda zero stem (to be replaced with 90d Kelly)
Salsa bell lap bars
Stronglight hs (to be replaced with a rasta king)
Grumpy front canti and shimano rear
selcof post, flight saddle
I think that covers it. Ride it smooth with a reynolds 531 and 853 mix, keeps frame weight just under 4 pounds. Lots of commuter miles and portions of last race season under way.
I look foward to a new fork, ti or carbon and converting to a single chainring race beastie, but I am in no rush.

|Never thought we'd actually see this finished... If it rides anywhere near as good as it looks, you are indeed lucky.

|Nice looking machine! It would make me cry if I ever scratched the paint job. Nice looking handlebars, must consider getting those bars one day along with ....

|Luckily, I have two containers of exact touch up paint.
The paint was not super quality and after a few years, I'll opt for a re-spray on a trip to the UK or a new frame.
Commuting through NYC for a year will chip, crack and gouge the paint surface. But still looks good.
Actually I am getting tired of the salsa's, swapped them off my colnago and relaced them with deda 215's. They are good for climbing, but geting the way regarding width, squeezing through traffic(auto and ped). I also feel that the levers are on a angle slightly.
A few upgrades include king rasta hs, aspide saddle, kelly stem, perhaps the candy eggbeaters, spooky cantis and top mount levers, perhaps a ti fork and optional rear gears (campy 9)
