New Road Bike!

IMG_0983In the process of building up my first road bike in 10 years. I have been riding my crosscheck as a commuter and touring bike for the past 5 years (Should’ve gotten the LHT, but oh well) and I’m sick of people flying by me onĀ theirĀ road bikes.
So i was given this beautiful Mercier Frame with Matching Chrome Fork. The previous stem was stuck in the fork to the point where I spent over 6 hours trying to get it off to no avail. But at last I got it free. I mean how could i use a carbon fork on a lugged frame? Especially a frame that came with a matching chrome fork.
I have a full tiagra drivetrain
FSA External BB (Never had this)
Campy Brakes (Bc the tiara ones are ugly)
speed play frogs
generic headset (Campy one was done,might put it on at a later date)
Civia bars (Bryant 44cm)
Nitto Technomic Stem, 110
Avocet O2 Ti saddle
Bontrager Race Lite Wheels
