Got any boutique or bling? Any nice bits of kit to show off, modern of course, sometimes seems that modern kit can't compete with retro in the desirability stakes.

Here is my Groovy bars and Pauls levers

Modern ? (it's new) Retro ? (its design hasn't changed much since it's introduction) Timeless ? (is it going to look the same if bought new in another 10 years) :?

The Dangerboy V levers are 98+, and the Alteks, well, they're timeless.

I present for your viewing pleasures a completely bonkers French rear derailleur. The 1998 EGS Upcage dripping in CNC'd style and titanium bits.

In my opinion it makes the likes of Pauls & Precision Billet stuff look like simple reverse engineered Shimano stuff.

Totally bonkers!
