Saw this and thought of you: But alas I see you already have this but even better. Worth a bump to the top though as always worth a look.

Can't you remember me telling you Tel of getting my rear mech' from a jumble for a couple of quid :wink:

The joy of jumbles...lol

I do now Ian ;) I knew you'd changed it but didn't recall exactly for what, certainly didn't recall it being the drilled version. Kudos to you sir you took a fantastic bike and made it better!

Looking at the pro bike looks like you just need a Cinelli 1R stem and you're there :wink:

That is so stunning Ian. Y'know I really think that I sold that too cheap, perhaps you'd be good enough to pay the balance now, I reckon an extra £250 should do it!

I went on a VCC ride last year and there was several oldies who had rode professional all around the world
and one old codger looked at my bike and said BBBBBY-christ you have a Sherwen bike! I explained that
its a replica and not the real thing, He checked the bike out and said the only difference is the Bottom Bracket
shell/Bottom Bracket and Fork crown! then started fumbling around searching for something and at that point I asked if you are OK?
He said yes I'm looking for my wallet at that point he offered me a four figure sum for the bike! He was serious too but I turned the chap down.
