It landed yesterday :), realy pleased with it, pretty good for the money, needs a good service, brakes are fine but the mechs, cassette etc need a good clean, frame should respond to a T-cut and Wax, rear wheel needs tweaked a bit, the saddle is absolutely boggin :lol: , going to clean up the seatpost and stick my black Flyte on it.

I'll ditch the Dura ace STI's as well, will look for a pair of 105 or 600 levers.

That should get it decent and riding to see if i'll be into it or not.

Was 14 years old the last time i was on a Road bike :lol:

Have you seen the Ritchey road bike in the classifieds?

Simply stunning.
