If looking to copy this setup, here's the (cheap, but surprisingly nicely shaped) handlebar I used: https://shop.fullspeedahead.com/en/v...handlebar-3384
Thanks--that is a nice price for a new bar. Compact profile bars are my favorite and I've done a number of them via quill stem conversion, which works out really well (see Schwinn Prologue with Di2 above ).

Your Prologue is one of my favorites in this thread. If you ever get tired of that quill adapter, let me know

There's a thread about it in this forum, if you didn't already know. Ask away!
Wasnt sure what the stem height could be- see that now, up to about 50mm.
Very neat- that should work great.

PM you info to buy one still?

I like it better than my Trek 660 conversion, too. Not that the Trek looks bad. I just managed better component choices all around on this one.

Search ‘innicycle threadless conversion’ on Amazon and you’ll find it in black and silver. I can post links, too, but generally try to avoid that.

Among a few things, I think two of those reasons are 1) the stem is dead horizontal vs. the many that are angled up 2) The larger diameter tubes of the frame help visually "shrink" the converted stem, where as the stem will look a touch bulky on traditional diameter tubes.

I've posted my '80 Colnago Super here in the past, but I feel it deserves another photo now that it's received a few finishing touches! The latest additions are the Campy aero seatpost and the Dura Ace C35 tubular wheelset. As it sits in the photo, it weighs a svelte 19.6 pounds. Not too shabby for a 60cm steel bike.

The wheels made a huge improvement over the Ksyriums I had on it before. Not sure if it's because of the the aero rims, the weight savings, the tubular tires, or (most likely) a combination of the three... but the bike feels much more nimble and responsive.

I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but I really LOVE this bike, and I want to show it off!

I just finished this fun build up. 1991 Bianchi Virata frame made up in Tange Prestige. Originally had Shimano 600 tricolor now replaced with XT, XTR, Veloce. 😁

I went ahead and dimpled the chainstays for 650B conversion while I was at it.

Recently finished this 1987 Cannondale SR. Fork is a 1" threaded Kinesis out of a more recently built Motobecane. Componentry is slightly newer and consists of 7400 Dura Ace drivetrain and brakes, Rolf Vector Pro wheels, and Dean ti seatpost. Brooks saddle+bar tape and Thomson stem are the only truly modern parts. Please forgive the awful photo quality.

Shogun Selectra, Newer Shimano Sora R3000 9spd

Love the shifting and hood ergos. Bike is about 23.5 lbs with my zonda wheelset.
Still has the Biopace 52/42 chainset and flat pedals.

Got a fantastic deal on the STIs: about $24 for both L & R, sold on eBay as "damaged/crashed".
Bought new hoods for $10, cabled them up: work fine!

@chainwhip,

I run Sora R3000 on my Ironman. I have only good things to say about it.

Nice Shogun!

Thanks Andy_K and BFisher.

Accelerates nicely with the Zondas on it, but will likely run with some older mavic wheels.
Fit 25c easily, and I may try 28s.
