Belgian beer corks, Ommegang to be exact. My version of the Buzz Kill, I call it Buzz Thrill.

Very nice! Are you going to paint it or just leave the bare carbon?

Oh, for sure I'm going to leave it unpainted. Few weeks ago I was quoted $500 for one color from Spectrum down in Co. Springs. No F-ing way I said!! At most I'll probably have some decals made up to appease my sponsors.

Mew, I'll meet you at Amante, hope you have a brutal ride planned so we have a chance to puke up our lattes.

Giuseppe, you must be one flexible dude. That's quite a drop to your bars.

Nice looking ride though. How do you like your Flite saddle. Is that the reissue?

I did toy with the positioning of this bike for countless hours, I am flexible, decent shape. Usually ride a 120mm -10 deg stem, this one is actually a 130 0 deg. The idea was to make it a more comfortable in the drops for long efforts when I find myself alone in these gravel and enduro races.

Used to race on the Flite when it came out in the early 90's, had three of them back then. This one is a brand new reissue. Happy with it even though I've been riding San Margo Regal since way back when.

I just bought this beauty on ebay. It is Tange prestige steel-tubing. It is nos, have never been build, and i guess it's from mid to late nineties. The frame is super light, and the craftman-ship very nice. note the small tubes for the gearcable-routing around the seatpost. On the pictures you see some small dents in the paint, these have now been repaired.

It will be build up with Campagnolo Chorus 9speed, the best drivetrain i have used, some Miche-parts and Shimano Ultegra cantilevers.

CASCARSI is the own brand of cycling shop 'De Meulenreek' in Geffen, NL.
They sponsered semi-pro teams.

I will post more pics when the build is progressing
