NOT building a touring bike?
sure looks like one to me. Front fork mount, rear mounts, cantilever brakes, 110bcd triple with now lower gearing, Brooks saddle and bar end shifters.
Ignore most of the picture because that is how the bike looked after I bought it, changed wheels and saddle.
What I said was that I was going to be using it first for a brevet. I didn't say I wouldn't be using it as a touring bike in the near future.
Honestly, it may be a free country but I asked about campy and touring not shimano and touring. Stay on topic...another did. Just for that, I'll get that long cage campy rear derailer and some campy bar ends. That frame is too nice for sora components. Centaur, Veloce or 105 would be the lowest I go and XT if I went Shimano rear derailer.
Actually, the stock derailers still look pretty good on there.
