Currently with 2x10 Campagnolo carbon Chorus derailleurs & Ergo levers and a Campagnolo carbon compact crankset. The 700x32 Stampede Pass tires are silky smooth performers and the ride is fast and very comfortable.

this is sucha beautiful, classic-looking cross bike. Really, a perfect example of a great, rideable steelie & classicly unbeatable parts!

I think that was a one year deal where they made bike tubes with it, it's popular for golf clubs. I'm planning on sending the hubs to PWB and have them re-laced with black Kinlin TB 20 tubular rims/DT Comp's. I already have some 23mm tanwall Challenge Elite pro tires for it, I think that will look sharp.

Post yours up.

I built one of those, in red/yellow/black/white. Some guy read a review and said it wasn't a great bike. With light wheels and a 9-sp 105 group, and a carbon FSA crankset, it was great(ly) underrated.
