Brooks Team / Campagnolo Record

Campagonolo Record / Brooks Straps

Campagnolo Gransport / Cork pads

It was built by Detroit Bicycle Company over the course of the summer, handlebars were aged & wrapped by Walnut Studiolo.
I had 2 forks made, one is drilled for brake above and one non drilled, the brake takes a little away from the the overall aesthetic but adds safety :)

High res shots:

Update: Had to order some MKS Sylvan Stream Pedals as the campy ones are getting to close on the corners for my liking apart from that the cable side of the brake will touch the frame and ding it if the wheel turns to the right to far, I haven't figured out a solution yet apart from just being careful.

Is amazing. In awe.

Very nice

Beautiful bike and taste in components... Do you have any experience using a caliper brake on a wooden rim??

From what I have read

From what I have read stopping power on wood is actually better then metal (especially in rain), special cork pads are being used on the calipers of course.

That being said we will see how they perform

Thank you for the kind comments, a lot of research was done selecting components

Very Stylish

Nice retro.

I don't know what I like

I don't know what I like more, the lugs or the hubs....

Gorgeous bike!
