    from the old school to the new school - roadie porn

    I just brought back my old-new bike. This is early 90s Cannondale criterium frame (3.0 series), it's the biggest they've ever made 66cm. It was catching dust for the last few year and we have decided to upgrade it.

    Here is the parts list:

    Ritchey Comp carbon fork, nothing else fits this beast
    FSA Orbit X headset
    Ritchey WCS stem and bars + Look tape
    FSA SL-K MegaExo compact crank
    Look Keo pedals
    Zero Gravity Ti brakes
    DT 240s hubs, DT rims, Revolution spokes, brass nipples (28 fron, 32 rear)
    Ritchey Race Slick tires
    First generation Syncros post
    Fizik Arione saddle
    everything else is Campy Record

    weight 8kg

    I think I'll start shaving my legs

    Thanks, I think I could change few things here and there but it would cost too much and it would not have any practical outcome, so now I'm just waiting for the roads to dry off...

    Yeah, I suppose I'm large, right now it seems like there are 26" wheels on the bike, but it's just because the frame is so big.

    Don't you love the optical illusion the wheels give on a bike that size? I built a 72cm Serotta for a customer a few years back, and the effect was even more dramatic. It was made even better by the fact that we had a really small Serotta in at the same time, 44cm, it was like pygmy versus goliath, the one bike could almost drive throught the others front tri!

    In the shop they had the famous "spider bike" Simoni was riding during his '03 Giro win (lended for some marketing purposes). It looked like a kid's bike next to my monster...
