Some changes to my Trek

I like my Trek given it used to have D/T shifters on a 10 speed ultegra DA set up you could have argued all I should do is fit ultegra STI's and be doen with it but there is something about ultgra fishing gear I just don't quite like (look wise that is) so I have bought Campagnolo Athena Ergo's, Athena rear mech and rest came from my part stash a Record square taper 10 speed chainset (new too!) chorus BB, Record pedals (because they are silver of course) and a 2003 chorus 10 speed front mech. The wheels are H plus son archetype on 2006 chorus hubs shod with 27mm Open Pave tyres. I like wide tyres.

I think there is not enough silver in the world of bikes and this bike needed silver bits so badly. That is what is wrong with ultegra it is not silver enough and I don't like the hood shape of the 6600 STI's. So now all I need to do is sell the bits that came of the bike.

    Look at you with a Cinelli Grammo stem... it is a nice bike built on a nice frame, of the era when frames were made for people who could lift a leg above a top tube and didn't need it to be reclined.
    The bottle cages are a real disappointment though... :roll:

    I was thinking that too when I was posting - I forgot to swap them for some King stainless cages must do that. Need to sell some spare parts I will never use again though so justify it to myself. Horizontal top tubes should be the law unless you need a step through frame.
