That's one of those bikes that looks fast just standing still. Really lovely job.

Hi Stephen,

The bike looks absolutley gorgeous. It is amazing the difference lighting makes in the pics. The frame is fantastic. Now you need the weather to get out on it - and it will not be today!!!

That looks incredible! Love the colour, and the overall finish is fantastic. Pictures are great too.

I thought I might get out a spin this morning but not to be. Saturday morning was the time but a family wedding got in the way.

You will be grinning ear to ear on your 1st spin no doubt!

We are nearing a point where there could be a Norn Iron RB section!!! There could be at least 5 members!!!!!

No cycling today - i think it is getting to the point where we will all have a pile of winter bikes and one summer bike to use on one day a year when it is not pouring!! Will911 is ahead in the winter bike stakes - he has 2 or 3 already!

Your right!

I'll need to get my modern frame built back up for winter duty. Only have room in the shed for two bikes but as soon as a house with garage comes along I could see another couple of bikes arriving.

Reading threads like this one are not good for me! I'm already scouring the classifieds!

Thanks for that...I am a wedding videographer so I am quite friendly with a few photographers! I held it up while he took the pics. He said it made a change from trying to get babies looking at the camera.....
