Not posted in here before, :) but thought you might want to see my roadbike.. dragged it out of the loft today, first time in nearly 2 years.. :(

Its a 2001 Principia RS6 Pro, one of the last hand built ones before they sold out.. :)

Its bit of a mixed bag of stuff, but built it up to be usable and more of a training tool than anything else, its lovely to ride, and with it being the RS6 Pro, it climbs really really well.. weight is coming in at a shade over 17lbs.. :)

Heres some pics.. :)

Oops! That looks painful - especially for the wallet!

Were you OK? Looks like a bad impact to do that.

A steel frame would probably have bent - and possibly been repairable?
