Took advantage of the good weather and took the SEFB Pug out for its first road test since building it up. I have to say it rode great despite the tubs being well past their sell by date. The only issue I had was the RHS friction lever was not quite tight enough and the gears started to jump going uphill, probably also due to very slight stretching of the new cable but I quickly sorted it. The bike feels amazingly tight not even the slightest rattle over cobbles too, it may be old but its got bags of life left in it. As I mentioned in earlier posts the wheels are not correct but I have been contacted by the chap I bought the frame off in Belgium and he is now selling the original pro wheels, Mavic SSC Paris roubaix rims laced to Mavic RD550 hubs but they are not cheap and I dont know if I could justify ( or afford ) that outlay on an already pricey build. I am also looking for some Mavic SSC pedals now. I cant quite say its completely `tout mavic` at the moment but I am mostly there. Makes an interesting photo with the ANC Pug which has C record which is an equally beautiful groupset but I have to say the Mavic is my favourite groupset.
