Just been polished and cleaned after it's first 100k ride in the woods/fields of the wonderful dutch unhospitable rough hard to get trough terrain :roll: ... :lol: :lol:

Anyway it was a lovely ride and everything worked fantastic and it's an honour to ride this fine piece of mechanical art!

thats beautiful kleinzero! well done! i really think that colour combination is fantastic, and great to hear you are riding it off road and enjoying it. i like your parts choice too, a blend of modern and retro that will mean its functional to ride for a long time!

uber cool!! this is retro modding to the next level...
But coolness istn't everything, how do the 10 speed thumbies work? And what about those paul canti's, are they better than the average retro canti?

Thanks! The Paul canti's DO work, had many canti's before but these ones do the job well and the Sram thumbies are perfect as well and feel very ergonomic, the click is very firm but good to use and because the lever is short they look compact, wich is nicer looking imo. 8)
