Nuno,

I agree with Finney - and the backdrop is lovely - i am jealous again!! Have a look at my Van Tuyl - it has Ultegra cranks and i got stainless steel end caps from Tel which look great - you might want to consider buying a pair.

Nuno,

Honestly the first pic looks like a real postcard!!! Mine usually have a fence or wall in the background - maybe i should bring the bikes to Portugal for a photo shoot!!

Here is a pic of the end cap i got from Tel -

If thou wilt appear, you will be welcome.
I live on the south bank of the river that divides Lisbon, but Lisbon is one step closer to where I live (10 minutes by boat).

Nuno,

Perhaps you should enter in Bike of the Month at some stage. I had another look at the first pic and i just love the bike in that setting - it is a cracking pic.

Richard.
You can always come up, I do not guarantee overnight stay because I do not have a home to accommodate a family extra, more bikes. :D
But can give some meals
Cheers
