Here is what the SPIN looks like today (through the lens of the wifes purse camera).

It's getting stripped of the TLO's and the stem today. The Schmolkes are going back to the fatherland
to be molded with a NoRa stem that also is getting the cable stop built in, couresy of Oliver :P !

Meanwhile I will mount some stripped 3T bars and the 11sp ergos on a spare extralite oc stem.
Fugly but effective. Yea that is a 10/11 setup, works like a dream. I've ordered the Campyxshift
conversion to be able to use it with my 11sp casettes.

This bike is soo getting the electronic Campy group as soon as it gets out; with the old style ergos of course.
So c'mon Pritch get the darn thing done so I can copy :twisted: !

edit: weight 6.3 kg as in this pic with 34 FMB's and Chorus 29 cassette, 6ish flat with fancy Superrecord Ti sprockets and tinier tires.

I love that it's dirty. That's how cross bikes are meant to be!

How do you like your Extralite stem? I have a Schmolke bar, but haven't decided on a stem yet.

Like the stem I am semi-limp/not-too-stiff :oops:.

Really nice for cross, trails etc. really hard to clamp the Schmolke bars due to sharpish edges and
small contact areas. Be warned. It's holding up nicely though, kinda like me come to think of it :D !

It is soon getting married to your old NoRa stem!
(Oliver says Hi) Hope to make it happy with being
bonded to a TLO, sitting on a Spin, like it was born
to do!

The little darling now in winter guise, we're back to Campy 11 and with 3t bars (the Schmolke bars with Oliver for stembonding and cablestop magic).
Wheels in pic are Corima Winium with Extralite hubs. Better stopping power than Edge, sturdy as heck, same weave as Schmolke, Clavicula - and soon NoRa stem.

Pretty sure it's an Emporelli cage.

I didn't know you can get the rims only for the Winium wheels how much was the wheelset weight with new hubs?
