Here is a snap shot of my old road bikes, pretty much what got me into cycling in the first place. Watching the tour on a black and white portable in the kitchen etc...
Funny thing is, Phil Ligget still looks the same!
1st up, a late '80s 5 speed Apollo on 27" wheels, weighs slightly less than a Renault 5 but rolled beautifully, ended her days as a fixie before fixies were cool!
Then a 2nd hand Peugeot 653 frame which I bought for a song, painted it with hammerite smooth and fitted a 4th hand Vitus fork.
The Dyna Tech which I still own to this day!
Somerset, like 'Heartbeat' with newer cars!
