Thought about this...and did a u-turn on the 11 speed groupset.

Stayed modern, but went 10 speed centaur. Front wheel is borrowed from another bike as I still need to build the matching 32-spoker

Was going to leave it like that until Sunday, but the after-dinner TV was garbage...

So... first ride.

Just a 30 mile shakedown, but really fun. Hard going into a strong headwind on the way out and then absolutely flew back. Need to tweak the setup a little to be comfortable on longer rides... but she's definitely a keeper!

The Cinelli Giro d'Italia bars that she was fitted with are a bit weird.... very little room on the bottom of the drops so I assume they were designed for hauling on the bends. Theres barely enough room for my less than enormous hands, Ill swap them out when the bar tape gets dirty.

Very nice! The bars look like they've been cut down, which would explain why you don't have a lot of room on the drops

I did wonder about that being the case.

So many things about this bike are/were clearly down to it being a high end custom build.

I'd have to laugh if they cut the drops to save weight... this ain't the worlds lightest frameset!
