Very nice :)

It the only Manitou I've seen though with cabling on the downtube. Is this specific to the Campag build?

:? The rear end looks more like a Marin kris, my manitou had a full CNC'd rear arch and like andrewl says, they only had top routed cables :?:

Still nice idea though, a team bike that could have once been had campag have gone for it.

:wink:

I did the same with mine, these answer alumlite bars have 2 shims that fit either side so that you can fit after you have easily inserted the bars.

:wink:

Ah - yes, looking closely I can see that.

I've done that with a Syncros stem in the past but wouldn't fancy opening my Manitou up that much... I think I'll stick with my flat Hyperlites.

Smashing setup, even though it's a "fake". Love those Campy bits. :wink:

Why the choice for a double crankset in stead of a tripple?
Nice one again Kris.
