Well is it a gate?

Cleaned up, no adjustments just lubed everything. Nice. Needs about half an inch of post.

Oh and the gearing is way more Norfolk than I’m used to. I liked the close ratio smooth changes but soon ran out of teeth in places.

It’s actually higher than drops if you think about it. Great for shorter rides. Not a tourer methinks.

Yep. £50 as she sits.

Been christened ‘the Cadbury’s bike’ by the boss.

Needs a longer post and a nice saddle, maybe a wider cassette.

It actually rides nicely. But anything does after my current only bike. Today. Note cassette.
