Leather looks too #supple to be fake to me.
I'm hoping it rides a lot better than it looks.
Oh my, that's a lot of ivy.
Must be satisfying to slowly uncover the shed underneath though.
The frame is available. I am pretty sure you could get hold of quick-release hydraulic connectors through a specialized hydraulics dealer - no doubt the pressure of a bicycle braking system is way less than industrial applications.
I think silver guards would make it a bit too shiny - especially as the paintjob is rather light in tone.
And black guards would better match the wheels.
But that is just my personal taste.
A set of VO noir mudgaurds would finish it off nicely imo.
I just weighed my 26" - it came in at 17,2 kg!!
So comfortable though and the 17,2 are with rack+basket and mudguards.
Yours look properly good though. Love the campag.
Or get at Velo Orange stem with removable faceplate?
B&Bs are amazing feats of engineering.
Too wide even for Danish cycle lanes imo though.
Have you seen the Rough Stuff Archive on instagram?
It's totally doable.
I've tried having a dedicated non-mudguard bike besides my commuter - but I eventually put mudguards on that too - so much less cleaning of the bike, even if you only ride in the dry.
