Rando bars with whatever levers you like. The drops are parallel on most newer ones and they have such a long ramp for plenty of room. No need to be on the hoods with ramps like that.

Ok, I'll bite.


Any special trick for setting that up? What gear did you start in? Of course I just sold my S3X wheelset, so it's all moot personally.

Might have just been a shop adding a set of bosses by drilling/tapping. I did it at the shop a couple of times years ago. That being said, I had a neon pink Trevisio I bought used a decade ago...

Here are pics of the XR and my other Novaras

The XR just looked too good of project base to pass up. Made in Taiwan. 54cm ST/56cm TT, looks like ~52mm fork rake. I really like the brazing on the canti mounts. I can't make out the serial...

I think Nicol only was involved for a couple years, but I'm sure they built from his foundation. The original XR that has been credited to Scott Nicol had 26" wheels, but the later ones 700c. I...
