Nice bikes, allard - you make me wish I'd bought that S-Works frame.

What bars are you using?

I'm using On-One Midge bars which i have stripped of their finish. The stem on both bikes is a Nitto Dirt-Drop.

Hehe that Kleiningham rocks...! Thinking of putting on some rear wheel covers to annoy the purists.

Good composition, shows all the details, hint of rollercam, good frame detailing - bike let down by Kleiningham decal (original or not, it spoils the whole look).

:D

This is a nice idea, but not my cup of tea...

Got a Dale in the cellar that's about to be 'dropped'... maybe there's scope to do a 'Cunningdale'... ;-)

Seriously though, who else manufactured those early Ibis swan neck style stems??

That's all I have determined. Choose your poison. Expensive, more expensive, most expensive.

Think proper name is LD stem not Swan neck.
