Panasonic DX2000 Chrome Campy with Reversed Mini Bullhorns


Finally finished, my Panasonic DX2000 all chrome 21 inch racer. Campagnolo record groupset, 165mm cranks, Shimano 600 brakes, Super Competition Wheels with campy hubs, MKS Copper track pedals, campy cages, Dia Compe Goldfinger levers, Nitto Mini Bullhorn reversed, SCT bar end plugs, and a brass badge Brooks saddle. Who's got a nice copper bell for me so I can be done?! Cheers - John

Nice job.

Never thought about it 'till you brought it up, but on NYC streets, that makes a whole lotta sense. There were lots of times I couldn't squeak my way between 2 cars, in traffic jams when I was a kid, because of the handlebars, but otherwise everything else would have squeezed through just fine.

(Q would have designed handlebars collapsible with a twist of the grip, and put in lots of other useful gadgets, besides... if only 007 had ridden a bike.)



(note to self: mask up, keep socially distanced, and go outside.)

Appropriate calipers for that frame, especially in the rear with the cable stops on the drive-side. But the front routing might make it difficult to keep the front caliper centered. If it's an issue, a simple fix would be to switch right for left, british style.

Hammer on the head. I'm not a bike messenger, but I ride everyday, and every inch counts when it comes to width in traffic etc. The steering is a bit twitchy, but ill get used to it. I like having a bit of a sweep back so i can get upright and look for cars etc and be tall. Thanks! - John

I inherited the stem with the bike, love it, and yours looks badass! I like that color scheme. - John
