Hey Charlie, just got it done and riding it! I drew a lot of inspiration from your build and I must say I love it. I have two customers and co-owners who are also utterly convinced with the ride. Got mine down to 21 lbs with pedals and cages for a 59 frame but might beef it up for touring. kind regards, Chris

Dear Karl,

I'm about to build up this frame as well. Im very exited! I'm thinking in the same direction as far as your components are concerned! Good to see them on your bike! Both wheels and tire sets look great! Could you give an indication about the weight of your build so I know what to strive for?!

My dream:

Do you like Srampy or shimergo more?

Shimergo. The only reason to use campy shifters is for the ergo and cache of campy cockpit, while saving money. Otherwise, you should have full campy. So it can really be said that the only thing SRAMpy and Shimergo have in common is saving money...
For saving money, the 8spd Shimano drivetrain is extremely affordable and plentiful, while 10 speed SRAM is only a bargain compared to 10 speed campy(only by a moderate margin at that). Even if you don't take cost into consideration, Shimergo works great while SRAMpy barely works. Unless you need the two fewer gaps between cogs, it's a no-brainer to me. Maybe I just had a bad SRAM rear derailleur?
