it certainly was - the best ever, in my mind closely followed by
anything else from '87 to '90, take your pick!

as far as the oakleys are concerned, being stuck in my 80s
bubble i have a pair - trouble is i don't have the retro
hair-do any more to balance up the massive size of them!!

:?

i remember it well !! he was freaking out at the crowd and for
ANYONE to give him a wheel as he was "losing the tour de france"
as the clock ticked on! that stage where he buried himself
to beat the clock and where indurain just pipped him must go
down as one of the most impressive rides that he ever did.

not sure that he'll liked being called "lemons" tho'!!

:lol:

and so say all of us!! i'm weirdly happy to exclude armstrong and his era - a shame really
considering he came back from the brink, but as the old saying goes, "if it's too good
to be true...."

vive lemond, hinault et al !!!!

8) 8)

lovely bike from a golden era, if you're going to use it as a winter bike, you'll need a winter jacket

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-Eddy- ... 1e77b44ce8

I loved my nylon fronted jacket, peaked hat and dodgy blue overshoes (made from so weird foam plastic - what was that stuff/ anyone?)

i remember those paper thin blue sidi overshoes - they always burst at the toes
where the toe clips nipped them....dreadful!!
