Ohhh nice.

Roadyism is a growing affliction that seems to be infecting more and more retrobikers. In my case, I have been infected by a family member, and I am currently spending precious hours of my life on this.

Mine is an 853 from 1999, but it's the same as the R700 which was made from around 1997 ish.

Mine was sold just as a frameset, and from what I can gather was bought by a member of staff (who is still racing), hence the steel forks, rather than Mizuho carbon forks which were factory fitted.

From what I've found, it was made in road, track and cyclocross versions. There is a track frameset on the bay at the moment with a huge BIN.

It's the first road bike I have owned in over 30 years :shock:

No Dave, I think 70 miles and the biggest hill in Herefordshire are a bit beyond my capacity at present. :shock: :oops:
