After picking this up on E-bay a couple of weeks ago, I finally had enough time off from work to dial in fit and do some obligatory parts swapping. I was looking forward to slapping on a cross wheelset and hit the trails today but woke up to rain and more rain. arrrgh . . .

I'm still not 100% sold on keeping the Magura brakes. I haven't used bar end shifters since my Campy friction shifters on my Bottechia of yore and I'm not super pleased with them. I may try Kelly take-offs in the near future.

that looks like a friend of mines old bike. was the guy you bought it from named Ernesto? Keep the brakes, don't give up on the bar ends yet, you'll adjust.

he's a great wrench. excellent wheelbuilder, that's a well cared for bike. Enjoy it. I'm in S.D. as well, he works on my bikes.

The bike is very nicely maintained and speced. I drove down to pick it up in person at his shop but never actually met him. Let him know it's in good hands.

Itll keep your flex way down.
Ive never seen maguras on a cross bike, I new they had them, but I guess there not that popular.

Looks killer!
