That is excellent!!
From one pug fan to another. Really good to see one that has not been fecked around with or a made a fixie. There can't be that many examples that are in such an original state.
Thanks.. I've wanted one of these for years even if it I am a "Steel Man" and this will be "it" for me in terms of carbon fibre. The really challenge is finding one that's not beat to death and/or has the brake cable guides not broken off the top tube. I am working with VeloCals (USA) to create a complete set of decals for this model; mine was restored with a mix of originals and their reproductions. Most seem to have been stripped of their primo mid 80s French components but they are easy enough to source if you follow the catalogue specs. Doing it as a real team bike was a challenge and I still hope to find the team edition front derailleur which like the rear one was drilled and lightened to distraction.
The ride is excellent, far better than I anticipated and not nearly the "wet noodle" I've read about; a pleasing mix of lightness, responsiveness (the geometry is ace), a good climber and comfortable over long distances. And mine, at least, is solid as a rock and dead quiet with no sense that it's going to come to pieces when put through its paces.
