    New Il Pompino build

    Just finished building my Il Pompino. Took about a month and I spent way more than I ever thought I would on it Maiden ride went well except I did not tighten the right front v brake down. That made for an interesting first down hill. Also need to toe in the pads some, they were squealin like mad. Other than that it rode great. I was actually pretty surprised there weren't any clicks, squeaks, creaks, etc. Here are some pics. They are kinda crappy, but you get the idea.

    That's a great looking build. It must be one of the most blingy Pompino's I've ever seen. A top class hooker would charge less for a Pompino then that build must have. I built my Pompino so when I parked it on the street it wouldn't attract too much attention. Can't say the same for yours.

    What make are the cranks, I can't tell from the photos?

    They look like Truvativ Stylos.

    They are Truvativ Stylo SS with Salsa 42T ring. I went a little overboard on the build. Actually, if I just cut out the King stuff and the Moots post that would have cut the costs quite a bit. Here is a build list:

    Pompino F/F 54cm
    King Single Speed Rear 16T, King Classic front hub
    DT Competition 14/15 spokes and blue alloy nipples
    Salsa Delgado Rims
    Kenda Kwest 700x35C tires
    Truvativ Stylo SS Cranks with FSA platinum BB and Salsa 42T ring
    Eggbeater SL pedals
    SRAM PC-? 8 speed chain
    Salsa seatpost clamp
    Moots ti post
    WTB Pure V pro gel saddle
    King headset
    One One Mungo bars
    Planet X stem
    Diacompe 987 levers
    Avid Single Digit 7 V's
    Dura Ace housing and cables

    I bought the frame and fork on Ebay. I think it was $265 which I thought was a decent deal. Must be some kind of importer or something cause I bought the bar and stem straight from On One. The package I got had all of them together. Weird.

    I must have picked up the same deal on eBay. Guy had multiple frames of different sizes. Frame and fork for $265. Even came with an On One ski hat. Still working on the build.
