Bit of a random one, but I'm meeting Keith on Saturday! He has a beautiful black Road Lite for me with full Campag and the optional extra Kestrel Carbon fork. Can't wait but I'm also a bit nervous! Anyone want me to ask him anything?! :D

You're meeting Keith Bontrager this week?

Cool - Can you ask him where Corsair Bonty non-disc wheels were built, please?

Thanks, Ben :)
Take a marker-pen, get signed stuff or even an original "to Ben - keep on truckin'" signature you can get decals made of ;)

pictured, below is noteeth following the KB motto...seemingly trying to discover if the also rule applies to titanium frameset versus aluminum beer cans. :lol:

Actually please could you ask "the Professor" KB if he thinks it is worth the effort of getting this TiLite frame repaired?...it developed a crack around the weld on the driveside chainstay :cry: . It would be interesting to get his engineering perspective. Thanks! Oh and no worries if you forget / don't feel like it!?

You cannot see the cracked weld in this pic. however eagleeyed RetroBikers' might spot something else of "interest"...

Correct, (top of the Retro) classen ! :) ...

I met KB at the 3 Peaks Cyclo-Cross in 2005, so like a true fan asked him to sign my (then unbroken :) ti Bonty, plus a sign a photo of Mr noteeth riding his Bonty OR. It was pretty cool really to meet, especially given there was a hardcore cyclo-x race to survive 8)

LOL@Tangent! - the infamous Bob O' Bass night... was this from the newly-rediscovered photo archive?

There needs to be another Buddle House session, sometime soon.
