I've been following the thread with interest as this type of thing is right up my street, even though I can't make the ride.

I must say I'm well impressed with The History Man's purchase, I really thought it was going to be a supermarket BSO when I saw the close-up of the rear disc brake considering the budget. Should be at least a "two housbricks in the rucksack" handicap though for buying a bike 10 years newer than the retro cut-off date :lol: .

Won't need a handicap. I'll be riding it! Off to verderers tomorrow for a day out to scare myself on the FS.

Hang on, raining......... Should I go/book HEMS?

That is a bargain, but back in the heavy weight category, here's mine all for £13.50

I don't think those forks worked OK when they were new :wink:

That's a great buy though and I'm watching several similar bike at present.... just waiting for the right moment to pounce :twisted:

No idea, collecting on Saturday, hopefully it will mostly work, plans include removing the reflectors and painting the seatpost. The LBS has also donated a specialised triple crankset (right only) and a deore left arm that was no use to them. So i'll spend the extra £11.50 I have left on a couple of cables and a new BB for the replacement crankset and I reckon she'll be good for at least 1 mile. :lol:

:oops: Just want to say you have no competition from me. Rode the verderers today with a very fit very patient very young red chilli (the) didn't see much of him unless he stopped! Having not got on a bike for twenty years until last month, I was absolutely hopeless. Mr chilli (James) was a star. Do you all know CPR?

To be fair you have just ridden with the cycling equivalent of god , the man has been known to rip cranks off bikes just by clipping in!! :lol: :lol:
