I bought this bike in 2006 to supplement my 1990 Gary Fisher Sphinx
(a very early monster cross). I like to commute with fenders and
taking the fenders off every time I wanted to go for a single track
ride was getting tedious, so I decided a second bike was in order.
I also got a second wheelset for the Indy Fab for faster road club
bike came with an 8 speed Shimano STI drive train. I much prefer
Campy Ergo (or bar end shifters), so I upgraded to a 9 speed Shimano
cassette and chain with 10 speed Campy Ergo shifters. I also upgraded
to a Rapid Rise (low nomal) XTR derailer, and am curious to know
if there are other Campy-shifted Rapid Rise drive trains out there.
The shifting is excellent, btw. Note cable routing on the rear derailer.
