Putting It All Together
The Specialized Allez frame arrived on Friday. I started putting the bike together on Saturday by digging into the Twin Cabinets 'O Bike Parts. I managed to find a complete Ultegra 9 speed groupo and added a few items picked up at swaps this year like the Hed Jet 50s I got at Cronometro and FSA handlebars purchased at the National Sports Center MCF parts garage sale. Among other parts I added were a Ritchey WCS stem, Thomson seat post, Sram chain, Dura Ace casette, FSA carbon crankset, Hutchinson tires, Salsa tubes and Cinelli bar tape. I got the bike part way done on Saturday as I worked around biking and coyote hunting... Anyway, I finished it today.
