At long last it is ready to ride .

Image

Image

Frame and Forks : Colnago
Brakes : campagnolo Record OR with chill pills
Shifters and brake levers : Campagnolo Ergopowers
Stem and bars : 3T
Chainset : Mavic Paris dakar
front mech : suntour xc pro
rear mech : Mavic road version
Aheadset : King
Pedals : 737
Seat post : Ritchey made by Kalloy
Seat : Flite , Italian flag
BB : Campagnolo

wheels are from another bike , but I have some nice 231 rims waiting for some mavic Paris Dakar hubs .


To do urgently is to change the awful bar tape , a green matching the saddle would be nice .
I am struggling with the position so the stem will have to change too .

It is riding very well , and climbs like a goat .

Very very cool Chris. I like that a lot.

Does this mean we have another addition to the meeting of the drops?

:D

thanks for your comments .

it is actually not that old , 1996 . It is a MTB frame and forks , but decided to go with drop bars after seeing Kev Yetis and others .

Yes Gus , now ready for a drop bar meet .

Wow Chris. Thats lovely, really nice. 8)

I do like MTB's with drops. Some nice green cork ribbon will finish it off a treat!

With the stem you'll need something with a 25-30 degree rise. There are usually loads of "Profile BOA" on ebay that will do the job relatively cheaply.
