Ive had the bike for 6 months now its hand made by nimbus cycles in Blackburn in the late 80's. The frame is made from columbus Nivacrome and its pretty light and the forks are aluminium. It has a 3TTT stem and cinnelli bar's. At the mo, it has a mix of Campagnolo and Shimano gear's and brake's. Wheel's were Alex at450's with Bonty tyre's. All topped off with a Kappa prologe saddle. It is a light quick ride with a zingy feel to it

Pretty sweet, I always like a single ring. Looks much more elegant than a double or, gods forbid, a triple.

I'm not much of a fan of that type of bar, but IMHO they'd look better with reverse levers.

Nice looking bike. I'd never heard of them but it seems they are still in business -

EDIT - just read through the site, some very interesting theories about frame design.
