Well, that is spiffing. Definite candidate for bike of the month. It would take something out of this world for my vote to go anywhere else.

Yeh really really beautiful bike but me thinks you made a cock up of the bar tape!
Needs to be evenly placed out and wrapped around levers correctly.

Absolutely 100% stunning and beautiful colour!

I would echo what Ian has said though, the bar tape needs a rewrap, I don't know if Brooks send a guide but its better wrapped the other way, start at the bottom of the bar and wrap outwards to the top :)
