Bianchi Axis II rebuild !

I would like to share this really nice build for the city I made for a friend.
I was indebted towards her because her canadian tire bike was stolen by my fault.
It was kind of worth it for her tho...

New specs
Tube : Tange Infinity
Crank : Old specialized, down to a single original 40-something ring
Brakes : Specialized cyclocross mini handles, Dia-Compe cantis
Wheels : alloy, soon to be upgraded
Der : Suntour XCD6000 (original)

Don't fret the loss of a Crappy Tire bike. Just about anything is better and this sure beats it. I'm with BG, interesting set up!

Slang for a left handed person. You have the left shifter driving the rear derailleur, which would normally be driven by the right shifter.

Cycle Ponce, sounds like a useful insult!

Nice bike bloom87, hope your friend forgives you for letting the other one get stolen.
