Here's my current DM favourite ride.

Understated but cool in my opinion. Got mostly low end Campy components here, but it weighs in at 21lb with a Brookes Professional so it's quite a flier: )

Features close clearances and neat details.

Plus a few more interesting items, if you have the time and interest; )

John.

Yep I like that, some good amateur riders rode these frames in the 80's, nice tyres, much prefer the cheaper campag than shimano ;-)

Thanks for that: )
I don't know exactly how old it is, or much else to be honest right now, but it does everything right. Mostly!

This one is 'modern' for me and quite educational in comparison with my other 40/50s machines.

White tyres and no guards means it is not the ideal winter machine, but I use it as much as possible nevertheless: )

Just a lovely vintage machine, and a pleasure to ride.
And, it doesn't have the normal OTT Dave Marsh decals.

Looks a bit like a ghost bike with the white tyres, gives a nice traditional look though. What size are they? Look quite fat.

The Panaracers are 28s. And they just clear... I like the look, but the black looks meaner to me.

The black 23s I had on originally (basic Blizzards) were a bit delicate for the roads around here.

This chain-wheel was temporary while I waited for a Campy BB.
