started with the idea to emulate a Rivendell Ram. This is a recently

using for centuries and longer.

I wrapped the shift housing into the bar wrap to leave the front

the rear triangle had already been spread to 130mm. VO Touring pedals

are also Campy, with the rear a 2009 Centaur Mid-cage. Wheels are
Centaur hubs laced to open pro rims with a 12-26 cassette. An old,
