Hope don’t you mind me adding a note to your thread.
My Peugeot Athena is now fully commissioned having had new wheels built recently, as I was not going down the tubular tyre route.
Had a very quick test ride during the week between the rain storms, however I completed over 45 miles as part of a Sunday club ride recently.
This bike is amazing, silky smooth operation and an absolute joy to ride.
The gearing is a tad higher than my other “modern” road bike, but I can live with that.
It’s has Campagnolo 14 speed index gearing, every gear change is quick and positive.
The bike was in excellent original condition when I purchased it and came with the tubular rims.
Just needed a good clean and polish which became a tad obsessional at times, just couldn’t stop polishing it.
Really looking forward to the next ride.
