Haaland your bike makes my trousers feel very snug around the frontage... and if that makes you feel a little uncomfortable, then save a thought for me!

So given the quality of bikes so far I dont expect to win but I'll throw the RBG's Bromwich into the bucket.

British built 1989 built lugged and fillet brazed frame in teeny size, frame cost me nothing - i had to cut out the seatpost and unsieze the bottom bracket cup and stem, groupset cost nothing - came from a free panasonic alu bike with a cracked headtube and it was a period correct 1989 only mountain LX group 8) , powder £25, decals £26, finishing kit .......... tenner at most - mainly car boot pickups and bike strip parts, looks a peach for that doesnt it - priceless.

Powder was done by York powder coating ..... it wasnt brilliant as I had to get a mate to face and chase all the threads and seatpost reamed hence so cheap, I wouldnt recommend them as it was also meant to be metallic :facepalm: .

And DOH!............... next month/this month :facepalm: :facepalm: :lol:
