Planet X are good for cheap bars...
I'm doing the Dartmoor Classic and am in a quandry over bike / gears... Did half the route yesterday as far as the turn to Holne on a heavish Bianchi with a triple so could use a 29" lowest gear as a bail out , tho' usually kept to 36 as a minimum. The bike weighs 25 lbs so needs the low gears. I did Ashburton to Chagford, Mortonhampstead, Bovey, Liverton Ahburton on a fondriest alloy with a Centaur 10 speed lowest gear was 36" on a road double with 29 at the back and only struggled on the steep bit out of Ash'ton to Auswell cross (am 62 and need a bit of help before running out of puff! )
I've sold the Fondriest frame which is long and aero geometry so looking for a frame replacement; Colin Lewis have nice Condor Fratellos with a light steel frame, carbon forks and can build with my Centaur gruppo but I'll find a compact crank for help with the vertical bits!
Raleigh looks an absolute peach, my frame 531C got lunched by a shop that used a jig to free a stuck seatpost and the seat lug twisted and collapsed
