Sam Gardner rode this for a couple of years in the top 5 of the Elite category of the NPS, a few rounds of the world cup and plenty of small victories before selling it to me to twiddle round in Expert for a few years :D

I moved on to carbon and disks :oops: so since 2006 it has been in the possession of my girlfriend and ridden about 5 times a year! Suitable retirement for a racehourse really...and I've put the saddle up for the sake of the photos!

It was one of the lightest race bikes on the circuit on its day, and would still give many of the modern machines a real run for their money 8)

Middleburn, full XT, SIDs, proper flite, FSA risers s'nice

They're all bastards. We think they are lovely but nobody else appreicates them, damnit.

It shifts perfectly, no need for a triple in lil old England.

Chuck us a link to your P7 then, go on

Well, I like it, I'd like it even more with disc brakes fitted and a 32/22T double set-up (and 1" smaller) but that's just me and where I ride, I suppose.
I'd happily give it house room as it is, it just exudes an air of lightness and efficiency....very 8)
