(Above) The stock drivetrain was just ok... '

I had a lightly used Campy Chorus crankset that I paired with a new sealed bearing bottom bracket...

The chainwheel is 53 teeth...

The stock rear derailleur was replaced with an 80's era Campy Record...

The stock hub is now a sealed bearing unit...

The existing 8 Speed gearing was changed to 9 speed, 12 - 26 teeth...

The pedal are dual purpose, flat and SPD cleared...

Rim, tires, brakes and spokes are similar to the front wheel...

Wicked cool. Those bikes are a steal.

How about putting on a front derailleur and making it a 2x9?

To me, more isn't always better... I think the short chainstays with a double ring up front would be in need of constant front derailleur fine tuning... The nine speeds in back will be fine...
