Not a knock on the build at all, but those 99 Ultegra Shifter/Brake levers will fail on you. If you can, upgrade to the 9spd Dura Ace units, they were far more durable.


I'd agree the 9 speed DA STIs were a far better unit. However the 9spd Ultegras are perfectly good, have a 10 year old set on my winter bike which have been on 3 or 4 other bikes previously. They're getting tired but have 1000s of miles on them and are still going....

Looking forward to seeing the Bonty :D


Me too! I received notice from the post office yesterday of an attempted delivery, so hopefully when I go to make the pickup today it's the Bonty that's waiting :D .

Thanks again to everyone for all of the positive feedback. As a fairly avid collector and builder of bikes for myself it's refreshing to have a renewed interest in road bikes and to be able to look forward to slightly different types of projects in my near future. Maybe it's just a fresh justification to feed the addiction, but whatever it is it works :wink: .
