Nice bike. I'm a real campy guy but these Mavic parts are very nice and can be used in hard conditions.

Love the color of the saddle, handle bar tape fittimng to the text on the frame. Nice project!


Those Mavic rear mechs had a weak tension spring for the pulley cage/jockey wheels as I had one explode on me during a 25TT in wales back in 81.


yet despite your weak spring rear mech issue 32 years ago many live on till this day ....
