Nice Bike.
Is that the standard velo orange campeur front rack, or is it a bigger one?
I mean the picture where you have put your tent on your front rack.

Are the chainstays crimped at all? Just wondering what the differences are between the two frames if any!

Amazing build!

I’m curious how the clearances are at the rear for a 2.3? I just bought a courier comp but am unsure whether a 2.3 would fit!

These tyres are not actually 2.3", although it's printed on them. They measure 53mm (2.1") on 25mm internal width rims. And that's about the biggest I would try to fit in there.

Wow this is lovely. Got one of these frames myself recently, I also owned one of these 30years ago..!
How do I work out what wheelset, and whether it could be an 10s or even 11s?
I'm hoping to build up an alternative commuter with the widest gears and largest slick tyres I can.. thanks.

Thanks! And cool that you got one too.

Rear dropout spacing is 130mm I think, so just choose a wheelset with a 130mm rear hub, and you're dandy. 10 or 11 speed is up to you, it doesn't depend on the frame in that way. Good luck!
