Some very nice parts and certainly different, but still not sure whether the old and new go that well together.
Maybe one or the other would have been my choice, but as long as you are happy that's what really matters
Can see that its been put togrether with a lot of care and attention to detail, enjoy your new ride.
I'll admit the thomson bits wouldnt have been my first choice, however they do the job and are of a suitable grade (I also had them in stock) and to be honest the quality of the CNC work on thomson stuff gives it that retro feel on a modern product. The rest of the modern components were chosen due to wanting them to work well, but keep the retro spirit of the frame, hence the new middleburns & 9 speed thumbies.
