That is definately a " Big Ring Riding " weapon.

( some of the language on that site is a wee bit " salty " )

It's only a 55 ring coupled with a 11-16 set up.

I've now sorted a Ghibli front disk now as these are SOOOOOOO rare :)
Also got me a Modolo Gear Shifter on the way which I has when I first built the bike.

I think I will also put back the original forks rather than the heavy aero jobbies on the bike currently.

Going on from that theme of getting back to my original build of Dec 83 - scored a Dura Ace AX 120mm stem & 27.2 seatpost which are also rare items. This machine will look a bit different the next time I take some photo's of the changes which will be around Xmas time. :)
