I think this is about 5 years in it's current guise now, would love to say I lovingly maintain it but I just ride the thing! I think it is time for a refresh though, I want to re-polish and swap a few bits and bobs on it this year just for a new look really, can't complain, it's cost me pennies over the years since I built it.

Nice dusty 20 miles tonight..

Good to see it still gets used and loved as intended. Are you changing anything on it this year?

It's the unbeatable bike! I wouldn't class myself as a hard rider by any means but it just keeps on going!

I would love to swap out some components this year, really fancy a few nice Thomson bits and would love to change the front chainset that I fitted "temporarily" back in 2011 :lol:

Been looking for some skin walls as well but they seem like rocking horse poo to buy brand new :cry:

All in all, watch this space! I do really want to give it a face lift though but without breaking the bank - easier said than done!

I wouldnt worry about skinwalls/tanwall/gumwall tyres, fit what works and carry on riding the tits off it.

Ultimately, this is the most likely outcome :D

I'm all up for making stuff look nice but the aim of a bike is to ride it, it's not a show piece, when it isn't being used i'm forever tripping over the thing in my garage, certainly not a shelf queen / wall art.
