Used this every day pretty much since I had it complete and in this country you don't get much more urban than where I ride daily and it's certainly my least retro build.

Please note the commuter bell...not many Pace with one of those badboys fitted!

Here's my DMR Trailstar; built as an urbanfunplaything to navigate through the grime, the obstacles and whatever gets thrown up... It eats it!

I love this bike and really makes me smile every time I ride :)

Unbadged Dawes surplus 700c frame. Date unknown but 1" headtube presumably provides some limit (late 90's, early 00's ?).

IG chainset, brakes, stem etc from 1998

Rear mech is Suntour from about 1985

Carbon fork, seatpost, bars. Dates unknown

Lightweight at 23.5lbs

Great pub hack bike, particularly for getting to the out of town ones.

And the Sinister too is fitted with a shorty 50mm in black, it's a classic.

Enjoy!!
