So although this bike is almost complete, I have decided to create a build thread. This started out as a lonely frame I won on ebay and had no initial plans for it. For about a week it sat in the backseat of my hatchback under a blanket so no one would know I had it. I guess the Campy bug bit me during that time and decided I wanted to build it with DT shifters. But I also wanted a modern shifting bike. I recently put a pair of 9 speed Dura ace DT shifters on my Crosscheck and fell in love with shifting a modern drivetrain with a pair of dt shifters, especially friction front shifting. I knew from previous sleuthing that it was possible to use bar-end shifters without their pods as dts. While I was researching that more(and discovering that it would be very expensive), I figured out a better way. The indexing gear in every dt/bar-end shifter is the same(adjusting the gear for increments of speed) post '94(?). I bought a pair of nos veloce shifters from campyoldy and a 10 speed index gear from branford bikes. Everything else on the bike has just been good deals as I find them. So far all the components are italian with the exception of the stem and rims(both mavic) For now I will leave you with a few pictures of the frame after I un-boxed it at work. More later.
That crack is only in the plastic covering of the headset, nothing disastrous
