my latest project. I walked into my LBS this past July and saw this
bike all built as a demo. I fell in love with the color scheme,
(British Racing Green with cream panels) so I took it out for a
quick test ride. I wasn't impressed with the store's component selection
so I negotiated for just the frame fork and Chris King headset.
completed the build with Campy Daytona brifters, Campy long cage
rear derailleur, FSA compact front derailleur, TA pro vis crank
set with 46x36 chain rings, Campy Daytona hubs laced to Velocity
Aerohead rims with 700x25 Panaracer Paselas, Thompson seat post
and Ideale model 80 saddle, Specialized stem and Nitto bars with
Brooks leather perforated bar wrap. I also added Tektro long reach
brakes, a set of Woody's Leopard Wood fenders from Bend Oregon,
a Nitto Mark's rack and a Nigel Smith Lil Loafer bag.
bike is designed to be a "Sport Tourer" and it certainly lives up
to that claim. It's got a very lively ride quality and has become
my favorite ride.
for your great site,
