Shimano Deore 27 spd drive-train with Truvativ crank arm.
Mavic rims laced to Shimano Deore hubs with 36 spokes.
Reynolds 631 steel frame (welded not lugged) with a lugged
Nitto aluminum multiposition bars with Shimano index shifters and levers,
SOMA thick-n-zesty tape.
Steel no-name seatpost with a Terry Ti-Fly saddle with titanium rails--
designed by Selle Italia--leather.
MKS Sylvan pedals with MKS cages and EAI leather straps.
I'll throw in a pair of Honjo Koken hammertone aluminum fenders that I
haven't installed yet (have all the hardware) from Jitensha studio and an
extra saddle--an old San Marco race saddle in case you want to cyclocross this
