    Another LeMond...

    This thread is loaded with sweet steel rides. Time to add my '01 Zurich. Built it this winter - mostly with parts I had lying around with some second hand gear mixed in. The 853 steel rides like budda.

    Nice bikes.

    It makes me happy to see the Simplex levers on the Colnago. I've got them on my De Rosa.

    Big improvement over the Campagnolo levers.

    Thanks. My first time with the Simplex levers. At first I didn't like them because I couldn't tighten/loosen on the fly, as opposed to the d-ring on the Campy levers. They're dials in now and working nicely.

    The Simplex/ Mavic Retrofriction levers out-performed anything on the market at the time.

    First I had Campy; periodically I had to replace the plastic compression washers.

    Then I tried Modolo's, until I snapped one plastic lever.

    I think I had Suntour Sprint friction levers. Meh.

    Then I finally ignored my weight-weeniness and tried the Simplex/Mavic. Oh; what light action on the pull! And lubed and adjusted properly, they were milkshake smooth on release. As a bonus, they never went out of adjustment.

    Looks like lugged, new production, made in Japan Panasonic frames are a thing.

    that's great and all, but for $1400, i can purchase a whole italian columbus bike that will retain its value with plenty left over.

    '76 motobecane with modern parts. Stuck with the 27" wheels. Found her in original state for free! Anyone interested in a set of super champion wheels?

    I made it 15 years on a bmx bike with no front and I had plugs in but they fell out. Still searching for an elegant yet cheap alternative.

    Close friend built and gave me this lugged frame for my birthday! (He makes 'em in his garage). Columbus Spirit tubing.

    Built it up with 11sp 105 and some 35C tires. Rides beautifully!

    Itís a bucket list thing. I built this frame two years ago, my first one. I had no metal working/welding/brazing experience at all. I spent a week under the watchful eye of Aaron McCambridge, AR Cycles, at his framebuilding school cutting, mitering, bending, and brazing metal tubes into something that resembles a bicycle. That was two years ago and I still smile every time I throw a leg over this.

    Hello, I want to share photos of my Waterford RS-22 I bought recently! I bought this used, and is in almost prestine condition. It has Shimano Ultegra 6500 groupset. It has a Mavic Ksyrium SSC wheelset. It appears it was ridden very little, and is a beautiful bike! It seems to be a 56CM, which is what the seller said. The frame was made in May of 1999.

    Well done. Good proportions. Maybe a side business? 1-2 frames a year. Bet it was fun.

    It was a great deal of fun, some 10~12 hour days, a lot of hard work. I did everything under the careful eye of Aaron. I had all the geo and dims from previous customs that were built for me so some of the hard work was already done.

    Iíll most likely build only one more, for me, and I think it will be carbon.

    Riding a frame that you built is super cool. That is a bucket list item for me

    Great work. Looking at that head tube, I am guessing that's a very large size frame?
