Big thanks to Martin for the frame set which got here quicker from Holland than a set of wheels form Bolton.

Anyway, I love bonded bikes, I love the visible engineering of them. They stand out from the usual steel and aluminium welded frames. OK so they're not the best way of assembling a frame....

Frame: 1992 19" Raleigh Special Products Voyager

Forks: Spinner Cromo

Headset: Mavic 316

BB: UN52

Chainset: DX

Mechs: DX/LX

Shifters: XT/XT mix

Brakes: DX canti

Wheels: Rigida/ Exage

Tyres: Wolber

Seat/ post: Kalloy cromo 27.2mm, Avocet


There are some jobs still to do like tidy the paint and give it a good thrashing....


And heres what it should look like:

Very nice LGF, surely you are on a roll currently. Other than Mark's team dynatech this style is one of the cleanest looking. Here's a gratuitous link to a campag equipped one > http://geoffwaughphotos.photoshelter.co ... MnspD9VvYQ

This is the one that I want :) .
Lovely, just needs the OEM Campag Olympus kit on it, although this will be quite a mission I reckon.

No problem, it's the first time i've seen one of those frames in the metal so to speak and as I used to run Campag Olympus mechs on my Rockhopper Comp (yes I know it's a bit wrong but it was a total custom frankenbike) they always stood out BITD. Olympus mechs were brilliant BTW, so well built and finished, worked perfectly with XT thumbies and sprockets just a little bit heavy.
