What's the motivation for the purchase K? I'm sure we've had the 'don't ride retro on the road, modern is better' discussion! :wink:

He's got to go to at least one National Series road ride and kaiser cant show up at one of them on a modern, the shame would be excruciating :lol:

:oops: caught! Ah ken ah ken, whits ma motivation! If I had to say what were my dream bikes back in the day it would be a PDM Concorde and a Colnago Master (on the road side of things) and I'd still say for maximum thrills and performance a modern bike will most likely still come out on top and I guess these bikes are to maybe enjoy the ride(KOM free riding) similar to my occasional retro mountain biking. And to stop me buying any more mountain bikes.

I think that is tenuous enough, no? :D


Remember its all N+1 baby.

I've still got my jersey and an indecently threadbare pair of shorts as well as a pair of leggings that are too long. Jamie reckoned he has a jersey that might fit me as well but I guess he's no seen me for a while :lol:

Velo this is very true! The National road series is looking good and was partly a reason for a serious look in the Retro road section, just need to finagle a day off for your ride.
