This is my new (to me) road bike. It needed quite a bit of work to get it back on the road, but she now rides nicely :) Quite a big girl as you can see!

Its Shimano 600 Ultegra throughout (except seatpost and stem). Unfortunately the paintwork is a bit patchy in a few places (forks mostly). Any suggestions on best methods to touch up the paint?

Obviously not a patch on some of the rides ive seen here, but will be in use most days as my commuter.

Are you going to stick with clips/straps and the biopace? be careful with your jewels and the standover clearance !!

I actually dont mind the biopace (and even quite like the clips and straps!) as thats what i used to have on my old bike back in the 90s. Might try a different chainring though just for comparison.
