I picked this up for a bit of wet weather and canal path duties and equipped it with a veloce group set that I had in my spares bin. It also got some frogs legs cantis, some randonneur bars and a brooks all terrain saddle.... I found some shorty guards in a bad way, and sprayed them black too.
The wheels are quite rare, large flange campag ones that apparently don't exist, according to velobase!
Anyway, it's a monster of a bike, that eats miles for breakfast!

Those look like the Sheriff Star hubs. Very nice. Did they come with the frame?

Is it a cyclocross or a touring frame?

That's why I bought them! It was drunken ebaying....as it happens,vthey are lovely wheels.
The frame is an older cyclocross frame...it is very comfortable though, as with all gazelles, the top tube is short in comparison with the seat tube.....I love it!
I've deliberately got it set up heavy at the moment, as I'm training for L'eroica...hence, the picture was taken in high beech, Epping forest. There are loads of steep climbs there.

Nice bike :D , I have got one of his brothers here in The Netherlands. These bikes ride indeed like a charm.
