Default Another Slim Chance completed!

Here is the Slim Chance I finished today for my girl. Hope she likes it when she comes home tonight and sees this surprise in the living room. It took a while to find all the parts. I also had to polish the frame a bit. A respray would be better, but I didn't find new decals yet. This does the trick well so far!

frame: Slim Chance 52cm 066S22
gruppo: Campagnolo Chorus 10-speed
stem: Nitto Dynamic 8 (8cm)
bars: Nitto M190 Euro 80 (width 38cm)
bar tape: Deda
seat post: Nitto crystal fellow
rims: Campagnolo Omega V
spokes: Sapim DB, alloy nipples
tires: Deda Tre Corsa RS 700x23C
pedals: MKS Campagnolo Record replicas
saddle: Selle Italia SLR gel flow Lady

Spikes,

in the pics it does not look like that bike needed a respray. the paint looks great. good looking build. i am sure your daughter will be really impressed and love it.

my little girl is still very very small. but her xtra small Buck Shaver is in the garage ready to go! maybe i should start looking for her Slim now too!

Sette

Hi Sette! Good to hear from you again. My "girl" is actually my wife, but she loves her Slim and she can't wait to take it out for a good spin. Good to hear you look really well after your kids ;-)

Is that a New York frame or a Somerville frame?
Just curious, bike looks very nice either way

Hi Scott,
It's a 1991 Slim from Somerville. It is made with Columbus TSX tubing.

Regards,
Spikes

All the bikes you've built (that I've seen) are first class.
Very inspirational.Well done!
