T– minus (RBotM June) 12 days & counting

I thought by now I would only be dealing with wheels & pedals, but unfortunately whilst doing some ‘clean’ jobs in my 'Father's day/Sunday best', I realised all my hard work on the 27.2mm aluminium seat post was not required.. it doesn’t bloody fit!
Never mind, I’ve got other projects it will fit so not a complete waste of time.
Now a quick rummage through the spares box delivered up a 26.42mm chrome steel Sturmey Archer job that fits perfectly, panic over.
Also, I am very pleased with the seat post clamp ring, it spent 24hrs immersed in Evapo-rust and with a good going over with MAAS metal polish now looks almost perfect.

Wow, that is a stunner! I have a real soft spot for green bikes.

Why don't modern manufacturers choose colours like that?

Looking very smart as each day goes on :)
Like the others I am really liking this colour as well.
I disagree with THM as I believe the post said throw a set of mudguards and a saddlebag and you have a sure fire winner :) All hells already broken out, you may as well take a win ;)

Cheers Jamie,
Not sure about THM’s winning formula, of all the RBotM & BotM that I’ve voted on, I’ve not even got close to picking a winner.
Anyway, I’ve got some good news that should please THM later in today’s post, (I have to wait till I get to my work PC to edit the photos)

Chris
