Sensational build up, BITD in VTT mag (french MTB mag) there featured an similar style Campag Euclid Ultimate (in Team Turquoise)--I only remember this as it helped me pass my French GCSE!!!

May I ask what stem that is? It looks really good and I'd like to source one for my FUNK build.

I wouldn't have thought white everything (well, almost...) would have worked, but that looks fantastic. Love the Campag option. 8)

That is nice! The overbuilt campa option just goes so well with the overbuilt yeti!

What bars are they Nick?

Really nicely done, really nice 8) Flites nice but a black turbo with white writing would work too I reckon. Do you still have the red bike? The all white and all red would make for a striking pic.

Hi Kaiser, yup still do. Fortunate enough not to have had to have shed them for the sake of progressing projects.
One red. . one white. . one blue. . fitting for an olympic year! Another colour will follow later this year. .

Bars are a home machined tribute to the syncros shotgun bar. I like early shimmed bars, and I needed plain gauge and straight to get the "period correct" super narrow that I ran in 1990, and still get the Bullet shifters on without a bar-bend interfering. I don't run my bars much wider now!

Stem is an FTW mod'd ATAC. There are a few out there if you hunt. Basically it got a bored front, a counterbored/ recessed stem bolt, and Ti hardware.

Thanks all for your compliments, it doesn't make for such a good read to respond to each individually, but heartfelt thanks to you all, all the same :-)

Nick its stunning and superbly done!

One of my favorites so far.

It reminds me of my 1st FRO which came all in white, frame, accu trax & A-tac stem.
