This one, not so much - the one in the GF’s bike thread, Do like.

Edit 1: Unless you had downtube shifters, what else could you run with risors without it looking too ridiculous ?

Edit 2: Actually these look like they could work?

Dunno if this is retro enough for you kents, but it’s retro for a Cannondale and it has rizorz. I built up last week this thing kicks so much ass and is my new commuter:

Thanks Jase, just got the rear wheel rebuilt, forks need to have some bending action done cos they pull to the right ;(
I’ll get some better shots up soon, might even do a full stable shot!
Also just scored a cecil walker 853 with veloce on it to add to the group of big bikes :slight_smile:

I thought they’re schwable ones. Can’t remember. I skidded through one and couldn’t find another to match, i know that. 25 gum walls aren’t that common.
Yeah Regida rims, campy hubs.
600 trip colour group (mostly)
Sutour shifters, not the right ones. But i ly ones I can find to suite the braze on.

I’m on the look out for 25 gumwalls. Not alot of choice at all.

Not liking the color of rims, but the rest goes nicely
