New Crank and Post get the old Road Bike standing at attention again


A nice rub and tug for the old road bike.

Actually, this bike doesn't suck.  Now she's got period specific 105 FD, RD, and hubs (on wheels taken from a Schwinn Paramount of same era).

The recent makeover brought the rear derailleur, FSA Crank and ISIS BB, and Syncros 250mm post.  Lost 3/4 lb and took her down to a svelte 22.03 lb.

A brick, IKR?

Next dream parts to get this old girl to sub-twenty pound range:
  • 105 period specific brakes
  • 105 period specific shifters
  • carboniferous forkus
