Here is my Mike Kowal. I had it built with custom geometry, (the seat tube slopes back slightly more than usual giving me a longer top tube) to allow for my 'uncommon' body proportions. I do wish I had had the facility to have a rear brake fitted. Campagnolo take care of stopping, headset and BB, Shimano brake levers and Miche track chainset and hubs.
