    Another seal option: Headset Seal | Lizard Skins

    Shimergo? Might only need a pair of 11s triple Ergopower shifters (or 10s plus a Shiftmate), IIRC the pull ratio for Shimano mountain FDs is about that of Campy FDs...

    All bar end front shifters are friction, so nothing to worry about there.

    Personally I dislike the bumpy feeling of Shimano 8s and 9s rear shifters' friction modes. They're simply not as smooth as...
