This is one of the bikes where I feel the front brake connected to the right brake lever is always best. It just looks so much more balanced when there is cross-over from right to left side.

But why in front of the bars instead of (more usual) behind the bar next to the stem... :?
Really nice bracket set, in steel cranks and aluminium rings. Very special, never seen before... :)

I've seen both methods, even on old catalogue scans...

Double Dee's 1980's Vitus 979 with Mavic SSC

viewtopic.php?f=23&t=246927

Thought I'd add some more breadth to the choices, now the weather is sunny cast your minds back to the classics season, and the recent Giro! This was my favourite build, and it rides the best of all of my retro bikes. I treated it to our club Paris Roubaix club run, 12 sectors of genuine pave and dirt tracks in 65 miles round Cheshire, rattled it down a mile long cobble descent in Alderley Edge, no problems. Competition looks fab this month best wishes :-)
