Good weather wheels arrived and fitted.. Bit too bling ? Probably .. But I'm a self confessed bling whore :lol:


Got the wheels from "The spoked wheel" £100 cheaper than anywhere else :shock:

Nice 60 miles this morning and the wheels add a good bit of zip ..

Hey here it is!! turned out very nice, bet those wheels are lovely very good choice of components. This TCR is making me jealous right now. I haven't ridden a bike in over 2 months now with the forthcoming move!! Fingers crossed I'll finally be moving in September and all my projects can come back out of their boxes then. New house has a garage.. he he he

Peachy - that's a top notch looking ride - stellar work all round. You've got the components & colour choices spot on and it looks in absolute top drawer condition!

Just took possession of an older, rough round the edges TCR pro compact - building it up from spares from the parts bin. Mine will be a feral cousin to your pure bred machine!

Thanks :D

These Tcr's are something else I've had a few road bikes(Sunday best ones) over the years and nothing has impressed as much as these !!!

Look forward to seeing your "black sheep" tcr :lol:

Reckon once you build it up it'll be a "wolf in sheep's clothing" 8)
