I was attracted by the sound of all these gauntlets being thrown down! Here is my modest effort from 1988 - but it's got a nice story. Bought new by me in 1989, raced by me as a teenager, re-discovered 20 years later, restored with the Mavic equipment I always wanted back then but couldn't afford, including wheels built with my own fair hand, and ridden up to the top of its namesake (the Col d'Aravis) earlier this month. Brings a tear to a glass eye, as we say round these parts!
