Picked this up on Saturday, pretty tidy although a slight bit of play in the b/b (I have fitted new bar tape too). Intend to sort it out and ride as is.

Really nice Ed.
Great buy regardless of price as it seems to be in excellent condition.
Enjoy!

For goodness sake Ed, will you please stop posting these gorgeous acquisitions of yours on here for us all to drool at! :wink:

I'm going emerald colour just looking at it. :D

One of my all time favourites. Very nice indeed.

Hi Ed,

Yes, very nice

Personally I would try to gradually upgrade to 7400 over time. The Ultegra 600 offers sublime function, but the ultimate frame to go with the ultimate kit make me drool even more

Very nice Ed,
Passing that 7400 on has generated positive karma.
Ride it for a bit while you collect the new bits.
Off to hide my merckx under the bed.
