Amazing build. I thought the DA7600 cranks should go with a 109mm BB to produce a correct chainline, how's your chainline?

It would make sense if the BB has a JIS spindle, which will make an ISO crank sit about 4.5mm farther out than the same crank would sit on an ISO spindle.

It's strange, though, that that's what the shop would recommend.

damn dude, this is done so well; don't ditch it. the worn blue concor goes perfect w/ the frameset being partially patina'd & aged frame signatures. those Salsa stems w/ removeable face are one of my favorite quills, the crank will forever be just as solid as all the other bits while looking like it's been mashed upon nonstop, & the tires show you're willing to put in the cash for a quality ride w/o a crap given about hype or rollin' a 'fashion statement' through the streets

I'm really liking how the head tube has aged and developed the patina. Sand the whole thing down.

the rest of the frame is chrome underneath so the headtube is all the patina im gonna get.

my local shop courtesy of King Kog in Oakland, CA. Not sure where they got it from though. It has Gipemme dropouts so I'm assuming it came from an old italian track bike...
