And here is a Saluki we put together. The frame was custom painted here in our shop Elliott Bay Bicycles, and the parts were chosen to be top of the line Rivendell-style. A Phil rear hub with Schmidt front dynohub and light, TA Cyclotourist cranks, XT derailleurs, bar-end shifters, Nitto bar, stem, and post, Brooks saddle, Velocity 650B rims wrapped with Mitsuboshi tires, plus Honjo fenders and front and rear Gilles Bertoud racks and bags. The perfect bike for Randonneuring or credit card touring.
