And nice one with the cranks - they look so nice and good choice with the campag - suits the frame absolutely !
How much does the bike weigh?

Weighing in at 21.5lbs so far, without seatpost, saddle, rear mech, chain, cantilevers, shifters, and all cables...
Wow that’s very light! I guess in total you’ll be looking at under < 23 lbs!

Re: 1990 Kona Explosif

I would weigh all that stuff outstanding at a bit more than 1.5 lbs, especially Campy!

Re:

Big push towards completion this week :cool:

Rear mech back from the menders and cleaned up. Needs Campag jockey wheels but they can wait. Chain (C9) installed ready for gear setting.

The inner chainring was a Sugino item, which has now been changed for a 26t Campag ATB ring to complete the chainset.

Olympus cantis installed, and I have to say they were a breeze to set up, and they have a really positive feel :D

Bullet shifters installed and given cables, but I lack cable outers at the moment so I’ve done all I can for now.
