    Yes, the N+1 is a slippery path, especially when your significant other can't really figure out why you need so many different ones ☺️

    To the OP. Enjoy the bike, soon you will be spending on upgrades or a new bike, most people do. I have a question on the two ride reports you posted. Is the amount of water listed what you drank or what you took on the ride?

    Neither. That is supposed to be how much you should drink for that ride..

    I already have the hitch to grab an 11 speed 105 group and put it on. But I might fine tune my vintage bike and just sell it to get a better frame. I enjoy too much wrenching on the bikes so I might just build another one to sub it ☺️

    Every frameset I've ever purchased had a default steerer that was at least as long as this one.

    I actually finished the vintage dude and took some nicer pictures of it.

    Riding the toe clips is an interesting experience ☺️

    What do you guys think?

    As a matter of fact you were right.
    The trek is gone and I have a caad8 frame hanging in my basement (already baptized "skunk")
    I also have a complete SRAM Force 22 ready for it and I'm shopping for decent value wheels (looking at Fulcrum Racing 5 LG) to finally put it together.

    I'm also joining a local club, I'm already training on the running and I'm hoping that group rides will help me with a bit more saddle time. The club doesn't forbid Tri bikes so I'm going to use that one until the skunk is ready to go

    The OLMO is a beauty. You'll get used to the toe clips.

    Heh, stopping with the toe clips still tight will be an even more interesting experience. You've been warned...

    Nice should a nice build. Check out November Bicycle for wheels. Seems that wheel builders can do more for less than manufactured wheels.
