This bike was both an experiment with the last possible half step gearing configuration and an experiment with Campy Ergo levers shifting a Shimano 9 speed cassette. Neither was very good.
I tried the Hub Bub trick to run Shimano and Campy parts together. It worked, but not as well as a system from a single maker.
The other half of the experiment was the gearing
|Front Hub||Shimano Ultegra (?) 32h|
|Front Spokes||stainless butted|
|Front Rim||Mavic SUP|
|Front Tire||Pasala TG 700x32|
|Rear Hub||Shimano Ultegra (?) 32h|
|Rear Spokes||stainless butted|
|Rear Rim||Mavic SUP|
|Rear Tire||Pasala TG 700x32|
|Bottom Bracket||Performance Ti|
|Crank||Dura-Ace 175mm 39/42|
|Shifters / Brake Levers||Campy Ergo|
|Brakes||SRP Mr. Grumpy|
This works out to be an almost perfect half-step gearing. Nice, even steps over the entire range of gearing I might normally need. Great, it cover part of the granny gear range all the way up.
Only problem is that I don't use the granny range all that much, so most of the time, I was riding in the upper half of the cassette.
