I'm putting STi levers on the base bar rather than having separate brakes and tt bar end shifters as I want to use this as my main ride but be able to practice tt position for my race bike.

Thanks for the private message Nob but I am unable to answer as I'm new to the forum. I'm happy for you to pass on my details, maybe Facebook search Mick Chaganis
Profile pic is a black and white pic of me and my daughter. Thanks

I passed on the info to Alan but you have a frame with pedigree there that has won many events...

Thanks, I'm trying to leave structure of frame as original as possible but I can't think of how to have front and rear derailleur cables without modifying the frame a little, I only has a rear derailleur cable mount. All other parts are just bolt on.

Nice to see both Alan and Dave next to each other - but not as good (or frightening!) as seeing them together on a tandem coming down 'Boro' at great speed! A wondrous spectacle :shock: :D

Just letting you know that I'm back on the Carless project, got sidetracked modifying my new TT bike and finishing my mountain bike project. Sanding the frame ready for spraying. I have mixed up as close a match as I can get to original but may go for red Carless decals, cables and bar tape.
