wow, bargain rumble, looks very nice too, if it needs it there is a very good article about cleaning up chrome in the bmx section.

the shimano road food chain is...
Dyna Tech
Ultegra SL - a recent thing where most the components were ultegra painted differently.
Ultegra
105
Tiagra
Sora

So think of 105 as Deore LX - very decent kit with the same design as the higher end stuff but bit little heavier.

Only warning I have is that the modern 105 5600 levers had issues in the early days (the front brifter that could be used on doubles or triples, it frequently broke, look for double or triple only) but this might not affect you.

Nice one. I was very tempted with that but realised I had absolutely nothing suitable to put on it so I bought this instead: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... K:MEWNX:IT

And I still have nothing suitable to put on it. :D

Cheers, I'll wait and see how I feel about it when it gets here but I might even go SS/fixie, if I can get over the hipster trendy element. The brakes & levers arrived today, not STI as I'd thought but still in very good nick for £9.

Looking forward to getting the chrome shining again too!

Corking frame Rumble! I'd consider campg, for the svelte looks compared to shimano and keeps the euro feel. Fixed wheel is cool but I'd go full geared first.

Rode to work. First time in a year and a half. A gentle 5 miles in the sun. Much better than sitting like a zombie on the tube plus saves me £106 a month to spend on parts :D

Now were are those rims & forks i'm after :lol:
