The Sheriff Mk II at last!

At long last the Sheriff Mk II is finished and here are some photos.

The bike is a 1984 steel Francesco Moser running the new Campagnolo Athena 11 speed groupset, Velocity Aerohead wheelset and topped off with a Brooks B17 saddle. The groupset shifts smoothly and swiftly, initially I wan't sure about the carbon wrapped levers and was hoping Campy would release a alloy version although I think the resulting look is quite nice. The Moser isn't light weighing in at 10.1kg fully built however sprints and climbs beautifully.

The build was finished just in time for the Audax Alpine Classic 2010 run in gorgeous Bright over the Australia Day weekend in late January. The highlight of the day was plummeting down the descent from the top of Falls Creek with the Moser handling the fast corners with ease.
