The SRAM looks cool, but I would prefer a quill stem and some of those 26mm Nitto compacts.

The lug thinning on this is stunning. If someone had said "vintage 3Rensho road frame w/ SRAM components, a Ritchey/Deda cockpit and a threadless adapter set-up", I'd probably have made a sad face. But you've pulled it off somehow. The only thing i don;t like are the red chainring bolts. But this is slammin'.

i completely understand the parts that are on it. but this baby is begging for 7400 DA :P

for reals though! this would look so much better with 7400 da cranks. Nice build regardless of that.
