New build-up finally ready

All Campy Leader 735R built with new and used components, mostly Mirage and Veloce. Inexpensive seat and post, handlebars and stem. Nice pedals, tho, CB Quattro. Finally rode it today, short 14 km run on flat to test everything out. A stiff chain link meant I limped home on a skipping chain, tho.

I just finished building this for back country dirt road riding. It's a 1985 Specialized Expedition.

On a road bike, probably a 52 or 54 cm. Depends on your body type, how long your legs are, how comfortable you are having that top tube close to sensitive body parts ...

It was almost summery here today in that the roads were clear and dry and I got to really put the pedal down.
