    My latest road SS

    After months of searching for a frame and parts hunting.......

    Im just lusting for the Shimano Oval Track Chain that seems to be sold out worldwide









    what else can be put on there for that extra bling factor?
    Not a weight weenie so any idea of beefier but nice components are welcome

    Spoke cards, bandanna? Just kidding, I like it! Nice and clean. What gears did you end up with?

    Here's my "road" bike, I have another set of cheap wheels with road tires but I like these in case I have to ride on the dirt shoulder on narrow roads.

    I have a rush- so I'm sure you'll love that bike.

    You need a brass bell and some wood fenders?

    nice rides. i have an 80's bianchi waiting to be transformed to SS. what do you guys use to plug the downtube shifter bosses? terrified to scrape my flesh.

    everything sucks but my vacuum cleaner.

    To 120 --- Currently on a 48 x 16. Hunting around for a couple of nice 50 and 52t rings.
    This is a pure road ss and terrain is pretty flat around here for me, moreover it's for chasing those sub 6kg carbon 11spd bikes


    Umarth --- the feel was great. the Stanyan is not the fastest accelerating bike I have due to the geometry but this is one bike that will go the distance.

    Fishcreek --- think Im gonna get this to plug the shifter boss unless something else comes along

    I have something similar, but it's scandium and carbon. 48x16 is a great gear. I'd add a water bottle cage.
