Try a setback seatpost. Looks nice.

Nice rig!

I myself am not a fan of that seatpost. I have one and dang it, I'll have the saddle set and two rides later it's in the position of yours. I think the seat clamp design brings about flex and shifting , the bike I have it on rides great so I'll probably swap it out for something with a different clamp.

It's definitely a funky design. I wanted to use it just to be a little more French, but I've got a Campy 2-bolt in the right size with more setback and proper support for the rails that I can use.

It's just that they're hard to find in 26.6. The old high-end Motos have steep seat angles, at least in the large sizes. Combine all that with a Brooks and a preference for sitting well aft on the bike and you can end up with some "creative" solutions.

I kept fighting with being able to get my saddle back far enough, until I figured out that I was riding with my saddles too low. I raised them a bit, and now all of my bikes are more comfortable!

Also, how's the cable clearance relative to the rando bag? It looks like you made it work.

Nice!

Not only are they Gevenalle, they're Gevenalle+Campagnolo 10v. I'm told there are only two or three sets of these in existence.



I love the Gevenalle shifting setup in general. My Special Sequoia has Gevenalle too, as of course does my modern CX race bike, both with the standard Gevenalle shift pods. The Campy 10v shifters are a bit different in the stiffness of the shift. I bought these NOS. You've heard the propaganda slogan about how Campagnolo wears in rather than wearing out? These are still very stiff.

Surprisingly, that's no problem at all. The gugie custom decaleur doubles as a cable organizer.

I can't find any info or sources for Shimano CX70s. They may be just the ticket for a 650b Bianchi Grizzly project I've got in the works. The pads would need to move up a whopping 13mm.

Very nice bike.

Great attention to detail.

No way I'd use fenders in the Midwest though.

They are "extras."

It's mostly class 5 here.......

The best year in my opinion.

Edit to add.

Crap, I made a mistake.
1976 and 1977 came with both the Nervex lugs and Campy/Suntour dropouts.
Just to throw another variable in the mix, my '74 that I bought new in '74 came with Campy D/Os. Go figure the French.

Andy, that's a beautiful GJ. Well thought out and executed. Who did you use for your decals?

Dang Andy, you’re a true artist. I feel like I’m just painting sad clowns on velvet.

Well now you've got me thinking about what the vintage bike equivalent of dogs playing poker would be. I've got a stripped down Nishiki that could be perfect for that.

I tried out a new saddle position today, higher and not so comically far back.



I felt like I had to raise the bars a bit and I might need to slide it back a bit, but this felt pretty good on the 10 miles to work this morning.

The other new addition you might notice above is an item from Atelier Gugie that I added after Sunday's Monster Cookie ride.



Now I just need a baguette, a beret, and a striped shirt. Ah hon hon!
