Nice! To run a pair of Gran Compe standard reach with 700c wheels, Im using a Campy drop bolt in back.

Just so happens that both of my bikes fall into the E category. Though I was kinda hoping that this specific thread wouldve come up a bit later as neither frame is an actual built bike at this present time.

Eisentraut needs no formal introduction. Mine is a 76 Limited Touring purchased as a frame and fork. Pictured is 55cm x 54cm frame in mock assembly as it sits right now.




Very nice. As you probably know, since that is a touring Limited, it is possible that Bruce Gordon built it. There may be a designation in the serial number that would tell you, but I am not at all sure about that and would not know how to translate the designation unless it said "Bruce Gordon built this." Maybe someone else knows. In any event, very nice frame, and it is shaping up to be a very nice bike.
