Build my bike part 2.

As promised part 2, some simple drivetrain choices for you all.

I only happen to have one braze on FD at the moment so there's no choices for that.

Your poll does not allow 2 choices, so "Pick a RD and how many chainrings" is not possible.
Nice design.

Apparently I'm not all here this morning, I flagged the other thread for removal because of that. This one I was sure I picked the multiple choice checkbox... I guess just post your votes since I'd rather not bother the moderators for making the same mistake twice.

2 chainrings. Go with a V series RD. That leaves one more Cyclone for the rest of us.

I assure you that cyclone is not leaving my possession so I'll count that as another cyclone vote.

I say 3 chainrings, and Suntour 7000.

The same basic design as the Superbe Pro with the capacity for larger cogs and chainwrap. AWESOME!

Friends don't let friends use Shimano, so I voted for Shimano.

I vote Campagnolo Cambio Corsa (assuming you can find or fabricate appropriate dropouts to weld onto your frame). Or a Rohloff Speedhub. What the heck, it's not my money!

I guess I should have stipulated earlier, parts are coming from my pre established pile exclusively.

Pre-established pile? You mean you actually stockpile parts? What self-respecting' C&V builder would do such a thing?

Oh., waitaminute, I still haven't used that Vx pair I've been hoarding. And the Weinmann brakes. Never mind.

Since you only have the one FD, what is it? That helps the decision!

Let's make it interesting. I vote single chain ring and Cyclone, assuming it's not the long cage version.

Edit: Never mind, I see that it's the GT version.

Looking like 2x and Cyclone GT unless we get a wave of votes otherwise. (My triple vote doesn't count, was just checking the poll) and I don't want to reveal the FD, as this would probably result in a very obvious choice on the part of you all.
