7005 CX frame for east bay rider

 This guy was out of racing for about 15 years. I have some distant memories of seeing him back in the day. Last season he showed up at a race and decided that he needed to come back and join in with all the other suffering fools. This will be his ride: NOS  Easton elite tubes paired with some newer stuff from Taiwan. The result is a pretty robust frame that is under 3 lb.
 The head tube and BB are the stock items-no PF-30 or oversize stuff here just the normal build. It saves weight and has a more classic look, even if the frame is a 2013 model. No Di-II, no disc brakes. It's all simple and straightforward. I don't dislike the newer stuff but a build like this goes easier .
