my faithful companion since more than 11 years now :)
since a while as "Kleiningham" with RM-2 dirt drops and XTR M900 STIs on DKG plates and Suntour towers, and DiaCompe brake levers. Now after quite some adjustments and fine tuning it rides, brakes and shifts surprisingly well. I really like that set-up.

Love it. And a rider, to boot! I think the forks and drops really make it stand out from crowd. 8)

The shift/brake levers are a cut above. Excellent effort there chap.

not entirely unlike my SS 94 S-works....

Except my Salsa drops are closer to conventional shape and I need a higher stem. Oh and the gears

I really like the drop bar set-up for very long rides. the above pictures are taken from this years Strathpuffer 24hr race (solo)

As I said elsewhere, I've got a weak spot for drop bars... When coupled to understated kleins even more...
