Thanks. The only problem is that it's given me the bug for tarting up old bikes. I've still got my old mtb to sort out before I start buying old bikes to do them up. I'm sure I'd get into bother for doing that... Smile

I have a box of parts too ... but I'm not going to let you have them after a gag like that!  Cheap Japanese rubbish ... tut tut tut.

So that's the chromaloy Wilier?  Sweet looking bike, Bartali!

Have to make room in the garage for a new arrival this week Very Happy .  Only problem is it's not mine Sad  My wife's club has got a deal on Cervelo R5s at a price that could never be repeated, so even though we can't really afford it we kind of had to get it.  Well that's what I've been told...

Nice but that's not what I'll be saying to Mr SR if he even thinks about leaning one of his bikes against the sofa!

You don't put mudguards on your winter bike?
Even the skinny ones that don't look that bad?

If not you were born to live much further south in Europe.  Haven't seen a mudguard down here for ages.

Mr S has it figured .... 'winter' is just an excuse to build another bike, but it is strictly dry days only!!

Not until you mentioned it Embarassed

Reminded me of this
