He did start up a small production company once, making some aero products, can't say I've ever saw any but I do remember it.

aye it's referenced in the book Flying Scotsman, he designed and attempted to retail carbon aero tri bars, but it fell through for reasons I can't recall. the books a good read, would recommend to anyone, even being an avid cyclist at the time, seeing him a few times a year at time trials and receiving a cycling weekly every Thursday, I wasn't aware of half his achievements

Already posted up 10 UTB 2014 in Retrobike Rides section, I've even put my happy hat on in the phrasing. No replies so far :roll:
Please feel free to suggest edits.

I will ride retro but will have a wee bit front bounce, TopGun cheapo elastomer fork with canti hanger earmarked for this. Possible alu frame for race acceleration.


Just paid- rude not to at that price and will be riding retro (well at last one lap anyway).
