:D :D :D :D yes totally agree on canti fork/v brake issue :facepalm:

However purists will be VERY happy to know this very bike gets ridden monthly (regularly). Out in the wild where it belongs across the Highlands of Scotland 8) :mrgreen:

Then cleaned / polished to perfection after each ride. :lol:

Well i cant help having a long stalk :wink:
Orange did a 15cm stalk stem back the day. Have quite a lot of these 15cm stalks on on my retro oranges.. Probably looks bigger given the angle the pictures taken at and the fact its white.. sounds quite dodgy all this :facepalm: :oops: . Anyhow like a long stem on a aesthetics point of view. 8)
