Hi Folks.
Thought I'd share.
Got my old Graham Weigh nicked last year in London and had this one built up by a nice chap near me with a ton of old gear in his barn.

Caygill Columbus SLX frame - extended seat post, not sure what that's all about. Not measured top tube but feels quite long.
Mavic GP 4 rims - had the fear with tubs at first, but changed up to a new pair of black Vittoria Rally and love them (puncture fairies visited this morning, however)

Shimano biopace crank (will change this at some stage, though it seems fine.)
Exage brakes - nowt special but do the trick
Ofmega mistral RD - nice
Falcon FD - shit.

needs some alterations (can't hit the easy gears and brakes are a right old stretch and placed uneven) but been too busy enjoying the lanes to take it back to the shop.
