My Breezer Venturi projectSledge Foot

Just wanted to share a pic of my current project, a Breezer Venturi. I plan building this up old school style: downtube shifters, Shimano 600 gum hooded levers, etc.

The frame is made from Ritchey Pro Logic steel tubing.
54cm from BB to top and the top tube is 57cm long.

So far I have Open Pros with Dura Ace hubs for wheels.
I'll finish this bike soon, been dilly-dallying since November...
that looks hot......Q?'sSpirito

The saddle is something I found that was collecting dust at a store in Pasadena CA called Velo Pasadena.
Although they don't sell online, their store site is at

It's a Fizik Vitesse in a tan color textured suede finish. I had never heard of this saddle til I saw it in the store and bought it. When I got home and looked-up the saddle online, I found out it was a women's saddle. Stuck it on my mtn bike for test ride and found it comfortable...

Thanks for the brake lever offer, I'll be emailing ya.
that's cool....Spirito
