My humble apologies, I jumped the gun re. completion,
wheels are being built at lbs, they've taken a f23ki&g age with them, but the wrenches are like friends , so I can't go in screaming about it, pics will be up asap,
apologies again

as luck would have it, I came across a Chorus 10 crankset in good condition, so I exchange with the old.
I also made my own self styled, primitive, Campagnolo Chainring Bolt Extraction Tool (as yet un patented) out of an old car wheel bolt, works great

spds are a sin i admit on a roadie, but the shoe soles are better if you need to walk into the bushes for a call o' nature on a longer ride

I'd prefer to see a Cinelli Stem & 66 de monde bars as they would ad more style than those TTT jobbies which make it look pretty awful upfront along with a different colour of handlebar tape.

I like that very much.


One of these days I'll get myself a Colnago, but for the moment I'm still in my 'British Steel period'.
