Taillight as received. The bracket was riveted on and needed to be drilled out.

Modified Nitto Noodles for internal routing.

That's a beautiful bike!. Interesting cable routing solution for the shifters. I was wondering if I'd be able to use older Shimano shifters with a handlebar bag and this helps answer my question. Do the cables interfere with opening the bag? Also, this is French Fender Day-worthy.

I never had too much of an issue with them, but they could be annoying trying to get larger items in the bag. As far as opening, the material is soft so it would just slide/roll back from underneath the cables. It's soon to be a non-issue as I'm rebuilding with Campy. I drilled and slotted Noodles so I could run the cables internally. I'll upload a pic.

If I were closer to Lyme I would definitely attend FFD.

Good to know. I think my preferred shifting solution is still going to be a Shimergo setup. A few more questions: is that a Compass front rack and what fenders are you using?

vqstaphbeard says:

Yep, that is the Nitto M13 sold by Compass, the fenders the 58 mm Honjo made Grand Bois' sold by Compass.
