    Handlebars will be Deda 215 Shallow. The most aesthetic bend paired with campagnolo shifters imo. Wish they came in 38cm c-c but from my research, a black 26.0 handlebar of that width and shape is almost impossible to find. Tape will most likely be black or pink (if it matches the frame.)

    Unfortunately my bars are 44cm (42 c-c) and so I need to find another pair that is 42cm (40 c-c)

    I wanted to keep the groupset but then found other parts being sold for a steal. Ideally after a standard chainset but compact is fine in the meantime. I nicked the rear derailleur from the Canyon and gave it a centaur one, so I now have short and med cage Chorus derailleurs but atm I only have a 11-25 cassette.
    At some point last year or the year before I took photos comparing silver and black brakes on the frame. I'm going with black and they are super record (without the red because I'm really not into the red parts on Campagnolo stuff.)

    Soooo it's been far too long. I guess my 2021 break from cycling / bikes extended into 2022 as well. Due to life circumstances I just haven't had the funds to finish this project. It's likely that this build will still take me a while but I'm determined to finish it this year. Now to get completely side tracked with other things.

    I bought an old Canyon Ultimate for the groupset. This was so long ago now. It cost me 600€ and it was a bit dumb because the whole bike wasn't in great shape. I haven't done anything with it and now that I found better condition parts, I need to get rid of it. Hoping I can make my money back.

    Regarding 10 speed chorus, is there any reason to keep a newer (2008?) groupset with QS markings versus a presumably older groupset which is in way better condition? I haven't tested either so only going by how they look. Picture of shifters so you get an idea. TIA

    Honestly a bike worth showing some love to. Though feels a little underrated compared to other CAADs, probably because of the fork. You've inspired me to photograph and post mine. One day I'll sand the fork or swap it out.
