Well I finished my Steyr Clubman today. Itís a really neat bike. Vintage Steyr Clubman frame and fork, Suede Selle Italia seat, bull horns, cane creel levers, Maillard hubs, aluminum Weinmann front rim, steel Rigida rear rim, original cottered cranks, single Suntor mighty shifter, Simplex rd and aluminum seatpost. As you can see itís a 5 speed conversion. I live in a flat area so the gearing is well suited for my riding. I built it with parts I had laying around with the exception of the brake levers and seat post. Iíve only ridden it 1 time, but I am happy. I gotta say, with these bullhorns Iím really laid out on this sucker. So I have 2 questions?
1. Is it normal for the cables to be wrapped in the tape with this bar/lever configuration? The cables seem in the way
2. Will the SKS Chromoplastic fenders for 700cc wheels fit over my 27 inchers here. And what width will be best? I'll be running 1 1/8 size tires. I was looking at the 45mmís.
