@t0-ster There's nothing whack about multiple hand positions when you're touring! The risers will probably remain fitted most of the time, and the butterfly bars will be fitted for touring etc.
@MisterMikkel Square taper cranks because pretty much all modern cranks lack the elegance of 90s Dura Ace, and the Phil Wood bottom bracket is a beautiful thing. I have never had any issues with square taper cranks on any of my bikes- as long as they're fitted properly, and the crank bolts aren't allowed to loosen.
@platypus I guess you mean the butterfly bars? Yes! Such a nice shape- loads of backsweep, and although I haven't had the chance to ride with them yet, just sitting on the bike with them fitted feels like they're going to work really well.
Edit: Oh yeah, I almost forgot- I built it all up earlier. Haven't fitted the mudguards yet, as I want to make some little stainless brackets, and had to borrow the bottom bracket and pedals from my beater, as I can't find my Phil BB tool. the temporary bb is a 110mm axle, and it's supposed to be 104mm, so the chainline isn't right, but it means I can ride it in the mean time.
Annoyingly the self extracting crank bolts I had for it sit proud with the 7410 cranks, so I'm just using standard bolts for now, and will either find some original Shimano self extracting bolts, or just deal with having to use a crank puller (which is probably most likely).
They fit fine in my beater cranks, so they're not getting wasted!
I'll fit the mudguards etc, and take some better photos tomorrow. I've got some 10mm stainless tube, and some 6mm stainless rod, so might get the pipe bender/ tig welder going and make some racks over the weekend too...
