I may have got a bit carried away on eBay and I may be the new owner of a pair of Mavic lo-pro pursuit bars. I feel a new project coming on. And it's going to be an expensive one :p

A project starting with the bars- I like it!

So Mavic headset, Mavic starfish cranks?

What a coincidence, I just bought some last week and am hoping they arrive before this weekend

I can't wait to go from having a sore neck with my current Charge Slice bullhorns to having an extremely sore neck with Mavic lo-pro's :roll:

I reckon on my Bob Jackson they'll nearly be inline with the fork crown and about a foot forward!

Yeah, that's what it's all about! You're brave going brakeless though. I just put a front brake on my Equipe thiking I might get away with one of those finger brakes, but it's just hell to ride. I'll be putting a rear brake on it asap.

While I don't kid myself and claim I can brake as well as if I had hand brakes like some brakeless riders do, it is quite thrilling knowing the added danger is there

I will put brakes on it eventually...when I find the right type
Campy Delta or Shimano AX preferably

Thought i'd add my s/s as there's not enough bikes on this particular thread :wink:

a few details...

Reynolds 753 track frame built by Derrick 'Rick' Powell.
Rear end modified when the frame was restored (I believe).
Campagnolo Track drop-outs.
Campagnolo Record Headset.
Campagnolo BB.
Crankset is of unknown maker - 53/16 gearing with 165mm cranks.
Look PP286 pedals.
Cinelli Integralter bars with Shimano Levers.
Tektro front brake with Modolo brake shoes / pads.
Gipiemme Pista 030 track wheelset with Veloflex Master 20 clinchers.

Real good fun to ride, used as my daily to work.

A few images...

Does anybody know how to run brake cables under handlebar tape on chop & flop handle bars when using aero brake levers?

Lovely frame, but that's a massive gear for the commute! pretty flat run, right?
