Following the arrival of the RC100 Trials bike into my caring home ( http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... 100+trials )

I decided to go through one of my bits boxes throwing some parts onto my as yet unbuilt Pace RC250T frame.

Any opinions, a bit of a franken bike but I am sort of liking where it is going. No idea what it'll ride like!

Like the blue and red going on.

Hate that you lie about your 'bits boxes'. These are clearly not just 'bits' :lol:

Can i come live with you?

Wisely.

One bike nut per household is the golden rule.

Break that, and we may find that the laws of physics are not the only thing being questioned.

I remember back in the 80s I was leaving to travel for a year and one of my pals wanted in on my room in the house share, I fobbed them off cause I knew he would take up all the space I needed to store my stuff in, with him being another bike nut.

Or worse, nick my gear!

Another golden rule is silver silver seat post stem, or black black seat post stem.

Or get a blue ano stem and seatpost?

I think that scares me more!

I've always been a part time only observer of the matching cuffs n collar stem & post colour rule. In some cases I whole heartedly agree, others like this one I'm apathetic.
