so after an order frenzy, a trip back east to Philly, and a bit of waiting the Scattante Titanium Cross frameset I bought back in beginning of March is nearly complete.

whats new? well, lets see, a lot! I got a screaming deal on a Super Record rear cassette (12-27 tooth), because I wanted some more titanium! 😉 along those same lines I got a Moots Ti Stem, 110×0. the stem was originally a red face plate version but I soaked it in drain cleaner and scrubbed the anodizing off which gave it a nice brushed look, and I then removed the red MOOTS decals along the side. next are the titanium spacers under the stem, Campagnolo cables and housings, Shimano XT PD-M780 Clipless Race Pedals, and the Ritchey Carbon WCS Logic Curve 44 compact handlebar.

the brakes have made a significant shift, instead of Paul Components canti brakes, I went a different route (the same as the Trek 750 Multitrack touring project) and purchased Paul’s newer MiniMoto road pull v brakes.

for a saddle bag I wanted something super lightweight and minimal, after doing a bunch of research I ended up deciding on a bag by ILE (Inside Line Equipment). ILE also does a bunch of really nice looking backpacks that I’d love to own. lastly I ended up purchasing some Honey Brooks Handlebar tape to instead of the Toshi’s, it just goes so much better with the Cork Berthoud saddle.

pretty much just deciding on a chain, waiting for a honey chainguard from Walnut Studiolo and the custom titanium seatpost I had commissioned by Demonchaux in Japan (handmade in Taiwan).

more when I get it 🙂

    hello from romania. really nice build you got there… i like how the stem turned out considering you removed the decals and anodizing, giving the bike a really clean look. i would like to see more photos of you working on those little – but very important – details… nice work so far! waiting for the finished product! cheers!

      Hey Alex from Romania, thank you for the complement!

      Haha, I’d love to take more photo’s of that stuff, problem is that I never want to take a photo when I do, I need to invest in more gloves because I get dirty!

      If you’d like to see some more shots, mainly from my phone, you can find me on Instagram, http://instagram.com/peterlombardiphoto

      Thanks again for the compliments, I’ve been trying to find the time to take some pics of the finished bike (I’ve been on a number of rides on it and it’s a blast!), hopefully the weather will get better again next week and I’ll get something up.
