Shopping season

It is that time of the year when most cycling buffs start thinking of upgrades and new projects. I’ve been pretty happy with the chinese carbon racer so it will stay as is for one more season (at least if the barrel adjuster issue can be fixed). I have two vintage racers (Bianchi Mondiale and Olmo Competition) I’m working on, but I already bought some SRAM Omnium cranks and s900 brake levers for a fixie build. I would really like a chinese carbon track frame, but the “killer whale” design (FM126) just does not appeal to me. We will see what comes of this. I might go for a second hand Cinelli, Low or Look if something pops up, but custom Mielec build also intrigues me. Let’s see what Santa brings.
