I have only given it a "shake down" ride to be honest to look for any problems. Found very early that my 3dv middle ring is more worn than I realised and remembered the broken spoke on the rear wheel :lol:

It will be there mate, hopefully the Hope wheels will be with me by then too. That will sort one issue. I have a stand in black ring that is in better nick for the day as well. :D

Remind me to give you the email for Goodridge customer service for when your cables start falling to bits.
I got a refund on mine. Look fantastic, but such poor quality :roll:

Said it before, and will say it again....I love this bike!

Cheers Makster,

One of my main inspirations (in some ways I wish I had an early on like you but mine is what cropped up when I had the cash!) :D 8) :

I am shocked at the Goodridge bit, I loved installing them and the quality seems good. The end caps dont fit as well as I thought they would but I will keep an eye on them now you say!

Sorry if I missed the answer to that question earlier on.
