Ed fell in love with a new 'Local'BS and he has them. There was also a traded in Diamant, but Ed's attention was totally drawn to the Colnago and of course he couldn't arrive home with two newly acquired bikes.

Not only Ed were happy as a kid. There was a Gazelle Champion Mondial Time Trial in Brussels blue too and that one went to me.

Lovely looking bike. I'm not suprised the steering is direct, the angle of the forks looks somewhat extreme. It must be a blast to ride.

The brakes have a touch of old Mafac about them, I can't quite put my finger on what they are though.

Well the forks have been in a little shunt at some point but they are steel so all is good - certainly makes the ride engaging and the steering sharp!

Frogglegs, Spooky, Pauls are all basically Mafac copies - I have some Mafacs and don't think they are actually them and Frogglegs have a cut out so my money, if I had any, would be on Spooky.
