Most enjoyable gentlemen. Thank you!

The man delivering the curry asked if I was OK when he saw I was covered in blood. I looked like a victim of a domestic!

Smashing ride. Got in and watched the prog about the chap collecting parts for his dream bike (Ride of my life?), BBC4 . A true enthusiast.. but he should really have assembled the thing himself.
Carol said the Clare Balding prog was better than last week, especially the second half.

It's all that running...very un-natural. What were the brake levers called?

Box. These are they. What can't really be appreciated is actually how broad the blade is - really chunky - felt great - wish more levers were like that. For example the barrel adjusters must have been nearly 15mm across (3/4") - much bigger than standard.

Hmmm...nice!

Hey Ed, have you bought a frame today despite our 'one bike' and 'spend no more money' conversation last friday? :shock: :wink:
