Once upon a time I had a very fast red bike. It did everything I asked of it, and I loved it. I got tempted by lightweight titanium, and stupidly sold it:
Once I realised my mistake, I spent a long time looking for another frame. The trouble was I couldn't find one in my size at a reasonable price. Then along came this, from a seller in Berlin:
I've now put a thousand or so miles on her, and she's every bit as good as the last one - possibly better, when I stamp on the pedals there's not a hint of flex. Sufficiently fun to make even short journeys enjoyable, yet stable enough that even taking corners in the pitch black p!ssing rain at 3am on the Dunwich Dynamo I felt secure.
I promise now not to sell this frame. But I am going to try and get the same geometry replicated with mudguards and a rear rack mount for winter riding.
