    My rides. Also have a Sugar, no photos. Holding on to it to see if I need suspension or not. I'm old, rigid can be painful. Stem on mtb was a loaner, it's a Thomson now, saddle changed as well.

I have actually ridden the bike more than it would seem (with other wheels) and do indeed have perhaps 20 more bikes that get ridden more often on days of possible inclement weather.

    I collected the lugs and components over about one year's time span. I had the lugs, fork crown, BB shell and components worked on by a friend with a well-supplied machine shop. I then had another friend in Italy (with over 30 years frame-building experience, including for many pros) build me the frame, and yet another friend in Australia make me the decal set. I then built up the bike with my own personal choice of components.

    I doubt that I would be able to build another identical bike as it has so many unique elements to it, such as: pista fork crown for oversize round blades (I ended up getting dedacciai to draw me the fork blades as I couldn't readily find any available in the needed size), Passoni titanium handlebar/stem combo (even Passoni will no longer make these), Campagnolo C-Record Century finish hubs (made only one year in limited quantities), drillium and pantographed components (the pedals alone have over 80 symmetrically drilled holes in the cages, the cranks are the rare ones without the central flute but are otherwise fully pimped out), etc...

    It was a gas to build and remains a pleasure to ride.

    Stick around, you fit right in. You def. peeked interest with folks who have a good eye for details.

    That bike is a hoot.

    No dustcaps on the cranks? You weight weenie :P

    Love the treatment on the rear der. I've also got a set of C-Record century hubs at home waiting for "that" special project.

    Polyglot, am I wrong or is the dragon taken from the alfa romeo logo

    Is that some kind of italian family or regional crest?

    Crank dust caps are for Freds, besides how else can you highlight the Campagnolo Super Record BB . In its first incarnation the bike was under 18 lbs, without resorting to lightweight tubing for the frame.

    When you see the bike up close, a whole bunch of other details will come to light. The snake is the symbol of the province of Milan, the lily the symbol of the province of Florence. The framebuilder's signature "Faliberto Maasi" is featured on the top tube near the seat lug, as is the chainstay decal reading "Bravata Maasi" instead of the more common Brev or Brevettato. Perhaps Nic can translate that last one :biggrin:

    My current bike - now fitted with '04 Record hubs on Open Pro CD rims, a Nitto Pearl stem and a Campagnolo Centaur seatpost:



    My new bike - still a work in progress (taking delivery from the builder in a couple of weeks) because it's yet to have the SuperNova dynamo lighting installed - the frame has internally-routed wiring for this :-)

    Default The bikes I'm riding

    OK, I'm new to this forum, but thought this was a good place for a first post.

    I just brought the Pink single speed/fixed coupled IF back from a month-long research trip in Newcastle, UK. What a great bike to travel with (no cables to re-attach). Jerk, if I understand things correctly, this was once your bike, is that true?

    Dearest spookster,

    You are in E'ton? I grew up in Holyoke and moved to Easthampster! No ways! When I'm out there again visiting mom/sister, will have to ride.

    <3's and spokes!

    Yessir, Easthampton. The old Paragon Rubber building. Powdercoat is over the hill in 'oke.

    Stop on by sometime. There almost always invariably someone in the office...
