Milwaukee Cream City Apr 22, 2009

So I finally got around to building the Cream City track bike up. I had enough spare parts around that the build came out pretty classy. The wheelset was borrowed from my Merckx for the pic and will be replaced by a Profile and Velocity wheelset this week hopefully.

Build so far:
-60cm Cream City frame and fork hand-built by Waterford in the US
-Phil HF SLR 36h 3x to Mavic OP CDs [front wheel is trashed still]
-Campy Record Cranks, Bottom bracket and NRecord Pista 49t ring
-MKS pedals / Dimension plastic clips / Toshi doubles
-C-Record Seatpost
-C-Record / Chorus headset [Contax model, no greaseport drillings]
-Cinelli Unicanitor [Old shell] – ripped off the torn up buffalo leather
-Cinelli 1a stem + pos risers / stolen grips

Haven’t really ridden it all that much. Since it’s raining, but it’s very similar to my Merckx’s geometry.

    Dude, you know you need drop bars on that. Seriously. Otherwise looking good.

  • diegoTR

    looks clean,i like that you consider c-rec’s “spare parts” lol

  • prolly

    Meh. I have drops on my Merckx. Riding track drops in traffic sucks. I prefer Criteriums or even road drops to track drops for city riding. I plan to put pursuit / tt / bullhorns on this ride when I get the chance. .

    Nice rig, how tall are you John?

    Seat post isn’t c-record, but still very cool.
    Also, good to know that unicanitor is stamped on the shell, maybe i can find a bombed out one for cheap.

  • prolly

    Yep, you’re right… this one is chorus.

    This one on my Merckx is Corsa


    Yeah, you can get the Unicanitors for cheap. Even the beat up leather ones have a nice clean shell beneath.
