Finished a clean up of this oldie

Giant CFR with full Ultegra 6500 group. I should take some better photos of it, but just wanted to ride it. Dirty now so might do something when the light is a little kinder to photography and I get around to cleaning it.

Not the seatpost unless it never leaves the road. Off or above.

Nice bike! That'll wake up the 15yo in you! 8)

That's a very nice build, David. Particularly like the steerer/stem arrangement: ends up looking like one of those late run itm quills.

There is no problem using a carbon seatpost offroad, plenty of mtb's come with them as standard.

True but the only thing I would worry about is the QR on the seat tube not seen too often with carbon

My first and current roadie. 2010 Malvern Star Oppy C6. The carbon clinchers are CoreCarbon 38s, build by Dan of Shifter Bikes. A few changes since this picture was taken - new saddle, stem, handlebars after a bike fit and black bottle cages. It looks mixed and match at the moment, hence the pre-changes picture. :)

Love those wheels. I'm generally not a carbon wheel fan but those look great. How do they ride? I've never heard of that brand before i saw your post.

I was even lucky enough to find a brand new set of Zipp Zedtechs here on BNA. There are only 3 extremely minor differences,equipmen wise between Andy's bike and my build being a Sram XG1090 cassette, SRAM 2013 chain catcher and Speedplay steel spindles. The Schleck bikes are 56cm compared to mine being a 54cm.

Cooper T200. She's new but doesn't look it.
I swapped out the brakes and put 1055 levers on her but that's it out of the box.

Available from neoppg in the marketplace. A+++ for the sale 8)

Lovely frame and build, classic beauty.......... I like a lot.

At last a Brooks saddle that enhances appearances - a very original, smooth looking bike build....... no chance 'hipster'........a real hipster would get the WB set right on their camera.......... :P
