Hi, new to the forum so greenhorn abuse welcome!

Recently I decided enough was enough after 15 years not having been on a bike. Used to ride a Dyna-tech 600 with Glos City Cycling Club, doing club runs and TTs etc. That bike took me 5 years of a paper-round to save up for and sadly I outgrew it and sold it. :cry:

So, 15 years and 4.5 stone heavier, the time came to ride again!

Not fussed on a modern machine so hunted down an old friend, this time titanium and just riden it for 10 miles (I won't say how long it took :lol: )

Some comments on this forum helped me go for this bike; needs a bit of work to originalise it but I'm loving my new steed.

2 days in the loft to find my old (also retro) sidi genius 2's and giro lid, some new 105 pedals and here's to "ride yourself thin"!

Yes that's right; forks and back end are either 653 or cr-mo steel. Main tubes are designated 2125 titanium and I reckon were made for reynolds by finetubes... 3/25 I think.

Is the saddle right ? looks a bit "slidey off the front" ..

Aye, I've adjusted that - that was a shop picture; since had 105 clipless pedals fitted and seat adjusted!
