Will they make that "train approaching" noise?

They are but I'll be running tubes.Tried tubeless on the MTBs and didn't see any real benefit.

I'm not sure but the hub makes a very nice sound....a bit like a safe being opened,more subtle than the loud clicking of the old Pro-2 MTB hubs :thumbsup:

8.25kg/18.1lb :thumbsup:
TBH I'm happy with anything sub-20lb.It's a bit heavier than my Canyon but that was to be expected.

(Almost) finished my build!



Just got lights to fit, and bars to wrap, and I'm done. Just been out for a (very) quick ride. Very nice to ride. I love it.

Even built the wheels on this myself, first wheel build project. First 11 speed, first hydraulic, first disc brakes, first through axle. A lot of firsts for me on this bike.

Sold the Ron Cooper, which was too small, and bought this in heavily-retouched banana yellow.  Components moved across from the Cooper except for the bars, which I had, the Italian threaded 6400 BB, the Campag seatpost and the Nitto UI-12 stem from Japan.  A quill stem for 31.8 bars!

It will have STI at some point but I've set it up with bar-end shifters for now and left the cables a bit long so they can be reused.

Made in 1995 and originally sold by Vanheste in De Panne.

I'm thinking of having it painted in Team Telekom colours.

My steel do-it-all road bike, on a recent credit card tour.
Old 5 speed frame converted to 1x11 spreading the chain stays (scariest fettling ever done).
Shimano 105, and odd set of pieces to accomodate the 1 inch steerer and french threaded bottom bracket.

I was finding the gearing on my Croix de Fer not very optimal for me, so I changed to have a shimano 36/26 chains and I found a 2nd hand 11-speed cassette at a decent price. Its 11-23 so I've sacrificed big gears and really small gears to have many in the range I usually use, all on the big ring.  Its still a bit of an experiment but I enjoyed the choices available on a wet and very windy weekend. The CdF is a nice ride, and although this slows it down a bit I'm happy with that for now.

Good work!  One of the many things I love about cycling is the ability to experiment for relatively modest amounts of money and faff.

You’re probably aware, but that is Vlaanderen 2000 team finish. I’ve got an SLX one, with the original steel forks.

I didn't know that - I only know it's probably a 1995 frame.  I have an SLX fork for it from the same era but it needs a longer steerer brazing in (which I also have, SLX too!).

The original finish is really shot - it's more touch-up than original - so I'm going to get it repainted in Telekom colours like Olaf Ludwig's old ride: https://www.speedbicycles.ch/velo/533/eddy_merckx_titane_team_telekom_olaf_ludwig_1995.html

That really is lovely. Must have been quite early for a Ti frame - and maybe a bit noodly given the small pipes.

I’ve got one. They’re basically Litespeeds. It rides pretty well, I certainly wouldn’t call it noodly at all as far as I can remember - it’s a bit too deeply buried in other bikes to get out easily.
