Shimano 600 Ultegra Dual Pivot brakes

My wife hated this bike when it came through our door but once rid of that ghastly yellow Rolls saddle, good clean, service and new tape she soon changed her mind. This bike was actually quite a mess and I recall robbing the brakes from one of my daily rides to get this complete, hence why they're dual pivot rather than period correct single pivot.

The thing I like about this build is the colour coordination, the grey on the 600 Ultegra group and the grey, yellow and white bar tape all match the paint of the frame. Yellow highlights on the tyres and saddle just just tie it all in together.

Albeit just a Columbus Aelle frame it rides lovely, much better than I expected and Aelle gets my nod of approval for sure. All in all a very nice build.

Nice tyre, bar tape combo too.


Thanks for the comments. The brake levers are Shimano 600 Ultegra Dual Pivot BL-6403.
