They arent too difficult to do, if the artwork isnt on file, but i suspect all these chaps have them, and i can whole heartedly recommend every single one of them.


Thanks.

It was pretty clear looking at the position of the pulley, that it was for the cable run to the front mech, which was why I was then surprised to see the photos. Guess I'll just leave it alone.

I hadn't realised that Argos could supply the graphics as well as the paint, that makes life a lot easier.

OK, a little time now until the 25th, when with luck I can have a chat with Chas Roberts and Argos at the bike show. In the meantime, I need to decide which headset to get.

Beautiful bikes. I've been thinking if I can justify commissioning a new DB. Will take a closer look as Roberts are at the Bristol show.

I honestly can't believe how light the DB frame is, even with a bottom bracket fitted you can hold the frame on one finger at arms length. I thought you had to go alloy to get a frame that light.
