Nicely done, glad to see the MAvic headset went to a good home 8)

Is the frame made in France? Any idea on tubing?

Think the build might deserve some more boutique stem, bars, post and saddle although understand they match the frame.

Frame is Ritchey triple butted made by Grisely in Canada.

Considered putting a Syncros stem on it but the seatpost is a stupid stupid size so will always be an eyesore. The stem and seatpost are from the original kit so... can live with them.

Every so often I see a bit of kit that takes me back and makes me go all quiet.

Those hubs... 8)

Thought they looked great back in the day, along with the headset. That's a fantastic build, and congratulations on having the patience to hoard all that kit for so long.

You might be right about the levers - I live in France and spend a lot of time looking for some Mavic brake levers to complete a groupset I have on a road bike. Haven't seen any yet, other than a NOS pair on US eBay at $300. I've got that in my favourites just to shake a fist at it when I'm drunk.

Lovely bike.

I was so lucky as to aquire some Mavic brake levers for my Alan cross bike last week. It's all coming together at the moment!

Now just need some old-school SSC brakes/levers and headset for the Brouwer.... And a 27.0 seatpost. Then I'll have Full Mavic MTB, road and cross. OCD? Me?

Don't think the 25,0 seatpost for the Alan will ever materialise.
