Just got this in the post from italy, nice new breezer storm frame, was hoping for this to be my 1st steel retroride but as luck goes it turned out to be a 1997 frame, still retro but its the 1 year they used aluminium tubes
, Still its beaut, and I like it.
I would have liked to built it up in its 97 spec but after reading up the spec sheets I dont like the idea of using Tektro v levers , C-star V"type" brakes, STX !!! & Alivio...................it just seems so wrong for such a nice frame.
So I dug out an old dx grouppo & some Ritchey brakes , halfway there
(not sure on mixing red anno on it yet)
