What a frigging day :roll:
Been driving from 12.00 till 9.00 and only covered 176 miles.
2 hours to drive from Falkirk to Glasgow the the GB road network
system my @rse, does Edinburgh have to change its one way system
every 6 months and I think the permanent road works surrounding Glasgow has become their top tourist attraction :x

:shock: hope it was a tail wind

.....I cleaned up the orange fat today and want your advice on summit.

It is pretty much m730 groupset which is sweet but the seatpost quick release that year could be used to kill someone and the handlebars and seatpost are also made to last. You know me and period correctness fetish but I'm tempted to replace them with lighter parts.... arrrghhh conflicted.... what should I do?

it has 730 733 and 735 bits, serial number suggests 1989 so looks like they had some xt left from the following year and some new stuff in too- got to love them at fat.

different bits were 730/2/3/5
from 88 cranks were always 730 b/b as well
but mechs were 735 as were headsets
brakes 732/3 so mix and match is period correct
