All the hallmarks of another epic Edwards tale - the cycle of self-imposed flagellation then reward continues unabated!

Any chance we could have these epics collated into one place - a blog would be handy (especially for toilet readers)?

Excellent write up.

Tell me Ed, were the descents "engaging"?

Sadly even vanity publishers have standards.

Giro Di Lombardia is going up the Madonna on Saturday. Nice bit of motivation for 3 Peaks. Have you weighed in again yet?

Fons De Wolf's Gios from his Vermeer Thijs days was the biggest source of info/inspiration (even down to the black stem and black Cinelli toeclips) when I was putting my Gios Super Record together.

Cool story!

Great stuff as ever Ed, many thanks for taking the time :)

Been toying with putting a road bike together for some time now - think this might be the final push I needed to get something sorted!
