This is not CR. In fact, that's my favorite thing about this forum.
I was thinking anything that originally came with downtube shifters would qualify since we are talking about bikes being upgraded to STI/Ergos. Bring 'em on!

Okay, I'm confused (frankly, that's not hard to do)...cantilever brakes on a road bike? I notice the eyes for a rack on the fork, originally a tourer? Doesn't look clunky enough for that.

It's a graceful tourer, moving with a style and ease....

Beautiful. I have the same frame, and I'm really digging the Zonda's on yours.

My freshly built, made-in-Spain Fabio Barecci.

I don't know much about this frame, as I can't find anything on who Fabio is or was. A couple of these bikes can be found in Spain, but it is doubtful they were ever imported here and I'm beginning to think this might be the only example here. I need a Spaniard to chime in on this one! Anyway, Columbus Aelle frame with internal cabling, nice lug work with windows, fork crowns. The paint is a standout, reminiscent of Colnago's Master series, or Casati's. Went with yellow walled tires, bar tape and cables to go with the yellow frame accents. This is also my first Campy equipped bike and now I know why everyone loves it. Also my first brifter bike, and it really can spoil you.

You can go to my full write-up on this bike here - http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...hlight=barecci

I believe the original frame owner must have had racks all over this thing. Oh and regarding the cantilever brakes...why not on a road bike? Plus I did want to have the old braze-ons sitting there exposed on the Fork (it was all about vanity). Admittedly, they don't have stellar stopping power when used with the integrated system.

Thanks for the compliment. I was afraid when I was building it that the red would be too much, but it seems to work (for me anyway).

I should have known! How could I miss it? But don't you think that if it's this Fabio, he would have a portrait painted on the bike instead of a signature?

Thanks for the compliment Robbie!

Ooh, that is nice. First time I've seen the double dose of brown leather and liked it.
I'll bet all the girls are swooning down on the Walk....
What tubing is that?

The Coppi is Aelle, the Peugeot Triathalon is 501. I wish it was super vitus. The wrap is cork with shellac.
