Thanks Michael, "still fluffy round the edges but getting there"
No probs with the wheels, you sound like me, "a kid in a sweet shop that stocks all my favourites and I simply can't choose LOL" It's hard to believe that 3 years ago I went on ebay for a single brake nut for my rusted Chorus. Now 3 years later and a few grand on, I own so many bikes, and still spend most of my time regretting those I never bought. At least a dozen have slipped through my fingers, namely an Oval Colnago, Campag SR throughout, £280.
On another note, the CXP12's are to be highly recommended buddy, just check out ebay to see the condition of those that do come up for grabs after a long life on the roads. They certainly seem to hold their own, and are super smooth to ride IMHO. I'll post you back in 10 years to tell you if they match up to my 27year old SR hubbed MA40's.
I'm a wiser man now for your info re: the Alan, thanks. I found that chap on ebay and kept stumm incase you fancied a crack at it. You know me buddy, "I'll help anyone if I can". Best of luck with this Alan project it sounds good. I've wanted an Alan for a long time, but missed 1 just a week back for £82 complete (gutted ... very). Just forgot to chase it home, then bamm, its gone, just like a Super Record headset I've been watching for a week that just also slipped by me for a gut wrenching £8 to my door from France. I still feel sick
Later Michael, and I'm always around if you think I can help out with anything, yours Laz.
