Looks very nice Richard! Not to criticise, but the bars look like they're rotated down a bit?

Thanks Andy,

I think it may be the pics, i will check tomorrow - the garden slopes a bit and that may have caused the bars to look sloped - that is my excuse and i am sticking to it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

.....Gets coat to creep to garage and sort out droopy bars

Well, it turned out you were right!! I have moved the bars slightly and dropped the saddle slightly. Bar tape will be done again soon. Pics -

Thanks for that. I better mention that i can actually put tape on but this tape was much more difficult and i am not sure why - it seemed like the padded bit did not stretch but the edges did - hard to explain - when stretched the tape was even more difficult on the curve of the drops.

As i say to my daughter, practice makes ...

Thanks,

Richard

p.s. another pic

Richard

You should use this pic for your rBOTM entry, it is easier to see the bike. btw you can count on my vote.

Steven,

Thanks for the vote - but have you seen the other lovely bikes?

I will amend the rBOTM pic as advised.

Thanks,

Richard
