1991 :shock: I still have my Z Team Jersey. Lovely bike fella how does it ride?

Agree Staffordshire roads are not the best, I tend to get over to the Peaks or Wales.

Difficult to say at the mo, the Time pedals are very different to my looks and I have zero confidence in them so not yet ridden in anger only with training shoes on!! Not sure if the pedals are just stiff from age but very difficult to get into, no problems getting out. Looking at buying a set of Campagnolo C record Looks and save the Time ones if I ever sell the bike.

Just gone around the estate where I live at the mo which has slight inclines on and I was most impressed by the ride. Have to say only feels marginal lighter than the steel Lemond Cromor I had but it just rides as one with the rider instead of feeling a bit too alive like the cromor one was if that makes sense.
