Hi, just getting into road bikes again since I left it in 1991. Here's my starter bike.

Upgraded brakes, wheels, tyres and saddle. About to change the stem and chainset and pop some spd's on. Just a cassette and bar tape needed.

That looks much better - will be great without that chainset!

If its your first roadbike for a while - enjoy - the speed will seduce again 8)

Thanks. The speed is great, it almost feels like I'm cheating for the amount of effort I'm putting in.

Update: Composite Aero forks, 105 chainset, 3T stem. Only the handlebar tape to go plus I need http://www.sjscycles.co.uk/product-Shim ... h-8346.htm

to fit the front brake (anyone got a spare they could sell me?)
