I was just panicking and wondering how I'm going to afford it and what wil the wife say when I realised this isn't in the For Sale section. Thank God for that...

Absolutely stunning bike, I wouldn't change a thing on that.

Very nice bike but the next time you put up 'in your face' pictures make sure the odd bit of chain is hidden will you Image


Ah yes well spotted, need those links though to break the chain. I had to crop the picture to get inside the memory limit, will do screenshots next time as its less memory

Nice bike, if any bike deserves a set of Delta brakes it's this one!


I so want a pair of Delta brakes, but the cost is too much, saw a pair in good condition go for £450!!

Ha ha! Well spotted Ian Raleigh.

To think this was the bare bones of a bike attached to my turbo trainer for the best part of 3 years. The rest of the time it sat with a mish-mash of shite bits as a pub bike - Sorry DD...

Get the tape on it and get it up for 'Road bike of the Month' December/Jan.

Phil


It has tape on! I'll post a picture when its light and sunny in Hayfield, May then! How do I put it up for road bike of the month?

Yesterday on ebay I watched a pair of delta brakes go for £195, though they needed new brake blocks :shock:

Deltas, deltas , deltas, my wife will kill me! tempted though. I got the stand from Decathlon(UK/French sports shop, not sure of your location) about 10 years ago, very useful, also have an Andy stand for my hollow BB bikes.
