Hi, this is not yet a running project but I bought this a while ago and only recently got it back to my house to start thinking about how to build it up - loads of ppl on here have pics of nice bjs and opinions on them.. thought I might tap in as I have built 1 bike up before with help from my lbs and it was a gaint fail. My current fixed is a bianchi bodged to something better which I like.
But with this, I'm after a light/day tourer that I can go weekend camping with (rack, guards, comfort etc). Not sure if I want a low fixed gear or actual gears. I love fixed but I have my day to day fixed bike for kicks already.
If I get round to drumming up the will and some fitness I plan to cycle to the Med next summer on it...hard but not averse to doing that fixed with a 60 inch gear and a free side.
A friend said a classic 5 speed build. sounded cool but a good quality indexed set up probably don't exist (?).
another mate said all modern or all classic. so was thinking 105 it up.
Now I'm thinking hub gears...
Also, will a quill stem fit over these new fangled ergo/comfy bend bars?
