This winter's build, out for its first real trip last weekend, in Belgium. The cold but sunny weather made for some nice riding.

It's a Robust frame from St Etienne, found on French ebay last year, built with a deliberate mix of Japanese, English, French, Swiss and Italian parts.

Now that is very lovely. While way too big for my tiny legs, it just looks a great setup and everything looks like it belongs. very nice :)

Really nice looking build.
How well do the Campagnolo shifters work with the LX rear mech? My hands don't like Shimano ergonomy, as opposed to 9/10sp Ergopower.

Thank you! This particular combination (Campag 9-speed, Shimano SIS and a Maillard 6-speed block) works really nicely. Very crisp shifts.
