My very rough assembly/trial fitting. Shifting bits still being decided on. Excuse the foam paddingÖ

I get virtually no credit for the set-up. About the only thing I changed after buying this from sloar about 4 years ago are the tires. I love that it had already been upgraded to bar-cons and a triple.

If I'm ever able to make it to Cino, this is what I intend to ride.

Nice, John. In terms of Cino, I'm thinking I might outfit the Int'l above as a single speed with drop bars for next year's Cino. It's all about the challenge!

Given my condition, hills are a challenge no matter the number of gears.
