Let's see your Steel builds!

That is a gorgeous bike. Very understated from a Cinelli standpoint.

Holding off on the English dream race bike for now. Ended up getting this for the kids. Building a box for it this week. It’s a Scissortail built by Dewayne Norvill out of Norman, OK. Chris King violet everything, Quarq power meter, 1x, dropper post, and an Eagle cassette. Turned out better than I could have dreamed!!! :heart::heart:

Sorry for not seeing your comment until now… yes, original Campy high-flange hubs!

Powermeter on a cargo bike is sick! Love it! Fingers crossed you’ll be riding it at least as much as it deserves it :wink:

@hannes Have ridden it a ton so far! Taking a break due to COVID at the moment, unfortunately. 88 hours, almost 1200 miles, and at least as many smiles so far. The box is a work in progress. Here are some pics of it in action:

There’s a chance Richard would build you a new fork for it… worth a shot anyway.

This is my first bike since riding a BMX 20 years ago (I bought it like this, didn’t build :slight_smile: ):

I’d like to replace the handlebars with some dropped ones; does anyone know what parts I can re use and what parts I have to buy? I’m guessing the new bar, brake levers and gear shifters? Is there any guide for how/where shifters fit onto dropped bars? I’ve been trying to figure it out for a few hours but I’m quite overwhelmed by all the choices & information there is so I feel more confused than when I started researching it.

My Japanese Keirin Stratos. I ride a lot of single speed, this is one of two I have.

Lucky enough to have found this Festka xcr frame a couple years ago on the lfgss forum. Built up with ultegra and PowerTap carbon wheels. Currently can’t imagine riding anything else. :kissing_cat:

She’s turning 50 this year, so this Schwinn Suburban is my winter wrenching project. :slight_smile:

Strong custom blend from ~2009. Truthfully I don’t ride it too often, but when I do I immediately wonder why.

Well, steel and carbon… Weird seat is a demo model I was trying out.

2011 Enigma Elite

Bike has done over 30,000km all over the world and just had a full strip, repaint and rebuild by Enigma earlier this year. I have a few bikes but always say this will be the one I grab from the garage if the house was burning down… Still puts a big smile on my face with every ride.
Originally built with mostly SRAM Red but now 11spd Ultegra. Rotor crank & P2M, Ritchey carbon cockpit and alternates with 30 and 42mm SLR1 wheelsets.

The details of the paint scheme are incredible and Dave @Enigma offered to add a unique personal touch, so he painted the profile of the Maratona on the chainstay as a reminder of completing that event on this bike back in 2012.

Easily one of the most beautiful bikes posted. Seriously good looking. Nice choice of parts, not too many spacers . Great paintjob.
Fingers crossed you’ll enjoy many, many more kilometers on that bike. 30k is a great start :wink:
