Lean Green Cycling Machine

Boom! That's how we roll...

Wasn't easy building her up from scratch, but she rides like a dream. Let me break it down to the vital statistics:

  • Bob Jackson Vigorelli Track frame in 'Verde Germoglio' with yellow decals
  • Campag Record headset
  • Campag Record Pista crankset and bottom bracket with 48t chain ring
  • Phil Wood 19t sprocket
  • Yellow KMC colour chain
  • Yellow Deep Velocity rims with System Ex hubs and Sapim spokes on Fortezza Tricomp race tyres
  • Green Knog Frog light attached to rear hub
  • Campag Athena vintage seatpost
  • Yellow Selle Italia Flite saddle
  • Vintage Campag Nuovo Record pedals with luminous yellow toe clips and yellow christophe straps
  • Cinelli XA Quill Stem 125mm
  • Nitton Courier Bar (with homemade lager can shim to fit stem)
  • Yellow Oury grips
  • Paul E-Lever brake with lime green cable and Campag Chorus calipers

whats with all the silver on the bike e.g. stem, cranks etc?

Why silver? I don't know I just like it! Wanted to keep the colour quite light and fresh looking so the silver seemed to work with the metallic green and yellow. Kinda love the look of anodised parts though, so maybe in the future...
