Are you comfortable with that kind of riding and downtube shifting? My Ciöcc climbs very well and is steady as a rock on decents. I have Ultegra 10sp STIs on it and couldn't imagine liking that kind of ride with DT shiftrs.

Is there a good source for reproductions? The best I can find so far is a pricey NOS 36 tooth ring

My regular bike has Shimano Arabesque downtube shifters so I'm reasonably accustomed to old-school shifting.

Any gearing setup is fine if you don't mind walking up the toughest hills. I don't know why people are so set on having gearing that allows staying on the bike every single moment.
