Chili rebuild

Salsa Chili con Crosso, Reynolds 
Carbon fork

Square Taper cranks from Good Friend B.K Syracuse, NY

White Industries Eno with Velocity Rim

All City Gonzo SAddle, Thudbuster, Salsa Clamp. All stuff that really works.

Cane Cree 110 headset, Thomson, Nitto Noodle Bars

Mafac Brakes , Mavic front hub, Mavic Open 4cd. Road tires for now.

Dura Ace levers, Lizard Skins DSP tape.

CAteye Strada computer, Thomson and Princeton Tec Eos,. Three great products.

Dia Compe 987  brakes with Koostop Salmone pads
Now I will get two more bikes ready for TI and then according to the weather I will pick my beast. Old cateye computers interfere with some lights. Or better said the lights interfere with function of computer. The cateye micro wireless uses the same technology as the old one. The new strada digitals are the way to go. My front chainring is a surly 32 tooth with a 16 tooth in back This gives me about 54 inches of gearing. Low enough for hills and good enough to roll on flats. 
Next TI bike coming soon. 
Thanks to B.K. for the cranks and Dave for the seatpost.

Nice! The green Chilis were the best looking ones too. Hopefully it is nice and you won't need the SS rig!

Jakey, that sounds like a plan. Once the weather becomes human again we will plan a nice ride.
Until then,
