Very, very beautiful ride!
I like almost everything about it, but personally I wouldn't have chosen the Delta's... somehow they look out of place on this bike. Can't explain... too elegant maybe?
What about Mavic calipers?

And what do you think about Simplex shifters? I think they would look great together with the other parts:

They are nice ! I have some mavic shifteres but I don't know where I put them… :oops:
But, if the derailleurs are Mavic, for the beauty, shimano shifters work very well, they are very soft, precise… I discover them (the bar end models) for making thumbshifters on my Merlin. Actually, I think that they are the better shifters for frame and its possible to use them with or without index. And for the 9 speed cassette (shimano dura ace), the compatibility is not bad.
I want to ride this bike. I wanted to miw some beautifull parts on it, on contrary of road spirit, which want to use the same group parts everywhere.

What a pity on road : hard to find crazy and rare parts like brakes levers, brakes… there is really more choice fo mtb…

Actually Pierre I rather like it - but ofcourse you know I need a tiny frame as well! If I my travels take me to the south of France i shall be asking for a ride on it! Most bikes are just far too big for me.

Really nice project!

David Blaine's latest stunt - the vertical bike...

Those cranks are the most beautiful I have ever seen, absolutely stunning (have I missed you saying what they are?)

I'm not totally sure but I believe they are Tune cranks.

They look titanium, I didn't know Tune made Ti cranks ? -Absolutely wonderful, whatever they are!
I'm pretty sure the chainrings are Boone, ~ fabulous!
