8) love that you went full campag, my favourite colour of the 2 also.



I’m liking the Green more than the Red (at the moment) but let’s wait and see what version II turns out like - I suspect it might be a close run thing



I like the brighter red against the chrome, the green is more 'lotus' for me though, not as much as black and gold mind :) Also the size/shape of the frame, a longer seatpost and i could more or less ride it.

I think the red might surprise a few when seen in the flesh... I did fancy doing a Black & Gold, but I’m reserving that in the slim hope I get hold of a carbon sport...

The seatpost has plenty more length tucked away in that tube, if you make it to MM2020 you can have a go! :lol:

That is rather lovely. Never built a campag bike. Chapeau.

You're both just imitating...

Oh.... sharp eyes.... it’s like you’re RetroSpuds wing man..
Yes, I swapped out the Campy chrome end for the aluminium GT end as the Campy was just too sloppy in the Kalloy hanger/clamp combo thingy. Also the Olympus levers got the same treatment.

Depends on a couple of things I'm waiting for to finish off the build (hence the radio silence of late)
