Vintage Moser - Modern Build

Postby happytramp » Sat Jan 05, 2013 01:20 am

Just finished my new bike. Since I've always liked steel frames I decided to to use an old (late 80's) Moser as the basis for the build.

A 1" full carbon fork, a second hand set of Kysrium SL's, and a Carbon Centaur group took the edge off the weight.

Haven't ridden it in anger yet but it seems decent so far. Weighs in at 8.17kg.

Cheers, no idea what kind of bottle cages would look good on a bike like this though. Molded carbon? Traditional Alloy? haven't a clue.

What's the score with a modern carbon fork and handlebar stem on a 1" steerer? are these available or are there conversion parts?

Nope. No conversion necessary. 1" threadless forks and headsets are readily available (getting full carbon one with a long enough steerer was tricky enough though). The only thing you need is a shim so that 1"1/8 stem will fit tightly to a 1" fork steerer.
