Campagnolo 9 speed ergo shifters. Campagnolo "Euclid" brakes. Campagnolo,"Centaur" (not the new Centaur), triple MTB Euclid and Centaur were the top of the line MTB components only made for 3 years in the early 80's. Campy "Euclid" frnt. derailleur.

It took me 2 years to build and to assemble the finest NIB components from all over the world.Photo's shown are pre-pinstripe and Campy crank Pleas E-Mail to ask questions.

It's a beautiful bike, but I think the price is very, very optimistic. A brand-new Co-Motion Cascadia S&S runs about the same price.

Thanks for the comments. Different beast altogether. Price the components alone, if one could find them. You can't. Plus the last 61cm Waterford heron ever made. Every component on this bike took over 2 years to assemble. Old saying."Campy breaks in when Shimano wears out". Campy is re-buildable, Shimano components are not. I can re-build ergo shifters in a tent. As far as the frame. It's hand made lugs, silver soldered and not brazed to the tubes like the Co-motion. Oh yeah, try raising or adjusting the bars with your Thompson stem with one Allen wrench. I'm sure the Cascadia is a fine bike, just not in the same league.
