    Default BONZ Zanconoto Super Bike

    Holy Crow. Just spent an hr. unpacking yet another stunning piece of work from our own Mike Zanconoto. Level of detail into this unique bike is heartwarming and technically right on the money. Many more shots to come in two weeks once parts find their righteous homes. Here are a few teasers.

    yes, the fork was built to be tall enough for Pauls Racer brakes. The fender ends up about a cm below the bottom of the crown.

    Hydro guides. They can be handy for external wiring (lights, etc). Is that whats going on here?

    thanks, I recognize them now. The black things threw me off. I was guessing they were for light wires. I'd like to see them in use if that's the case.

    Default Awesome Color scheme.

    Wow! This is gorgeous. What an awesome color scheme as well. I really like Mike's work more and more. I love my Zanks, I am sure you will love yours as well.

    Looking forward to building this up. :thumbs_up:

    It'll have a mix of silver Campagnolo stuff. Partly by design and partly just 'cuz that's what I have sitting around. I have a set of 28/32 wheels with Velocity rims. I'm going to eventually have them rebuilt with box section tubulars, hopefully Nemesis rims, and live happily ever after, never ever lusting after new equipment....... riiiiiight.

    Ride report to follow. But it will be a couple weeks 'til I get home to assemple this.

    1st pic from a ride two weeks ago. 2nd pic from Monday with new tape courtesy of Handlebra. Seems like most of my other rides are getting the cold shoulder. Probably time to unload some of them.....

    It's a full centaur kit except the shifters are chorus. Brakes are the tektro CR20 that were terrible at first but are much better with some wear on the pads.

    Ze part are trickling into casa Too Tall. There will be some delay painting the fenders which in hindsight will look just amazing painted. Sometimes you need to see everything together before knowing. WHO KNEW? Bonz, that's who knew. Smart man.

    So, here's my addition to the Zanconato Gallery. Did my first ride yesterday, though it was only about 20-25 miles. Easy. Still, enough to get a good first impression. Solid, precise, smooth are the words that come to mind.

    The handlebars will be changed out. I wanted to try something different, but these ain't cutting it. Good bars to be sure. Quality. But the wrong bend for me. I just like the round shallow ones from Deda.

    It'll get a longer ride in about 1 hour.

    BTW, the wheels are the Nucleons with the damaged rear from a month or so ago. Fixed it with some spoke removal and judicious use of a block of wood and a rubber mallet and some pounding and wincing. The rear wheel is probably living on borrowed time but yesterday rode nicely. The plan still calls for a set of Nemesis as soon as I acquire a 32 for the rear and have them build up. Hubs and a 28-hole front rim is already sitting in the garage.

    More to follow.






    Epilogue

    Here's a shot from the iPhone. End of season shot and it's still a work in progess, but getting refined. The bars are changed out for the only choice - round ones. Raced this bike a couple times. I'd buy another one. Probably get a level top tube for Act II. To much of a 'grouch for the sloper. That said, there's nothing wrong with how it rides.

    Next project is to build up a set of the Nemesis wheels and get some tubulars on.
