gorgeous, and such a dramatic transformation!

if you ever want to go even more retro on the cockpit, you can get gold hudz for your ergoshifters

Awesome!
I'm going to use those tyres on my steel road bike.
Good one,

Thanks guys!

Only thing I’m not 100% on is the bar tape – as Robert said, the logo just sticks out a bit too much and also it is quite thick with the gel included. Makes it hard to wrap tightly and difficult with the end caps. I use the standard black Cinelli tape with Fizik gel inserts on my other roadies, easier to wrap and the logo is much more subtle. Might have a look at the Rivendell tape or someone else?

Also, the front tyre is on the wrong way so the hub logo is backwards :oops:

I love this stuff for retro look. Much thinner too. http://www.fubarbicycleproducts.com/fub ... rtape.aspx

brendan this is prolly nothing but let me know how those tb14s go. someone suggested to me to be aware of brake useage on those rims, apparently they wear out super fast. Heresay really.

How's the bike going?
Just thought I'd let you know 1500km and the Veloflex Masters are toast. The rear is all cut up from the glass all over Sydney roads. Pity, they rode and looked fantastic.

Ahh bummer - I'll have to see how far mine go (both the rim wear and tyre wear!). Don't have an odometer on this bike, but I've probably only done 250-300kms on it since the build.

Cut up is fine. How many flats? Is the canvas showing through?

I mean cut up as in the last cut exposed the tube so it expands out the tear when inflated. Only punctured the rear once but had to finish the ride with a bank note covering the hole.
Canvas not showing, I'm going to get another tyre and refit them later and see if I have more luck - they're great looking and handling tyres.
Ordinarily I'm not too concerned with cuts in tyres until I start to get regular flats, like 3 in a week.
