Cheers, it is nice :D

Not too happy with the colour of the tyres but they were very cheap (thank goodness!) and i like the Pro Race.

Problem is I haven't got the legs to push the gears anymore :oops: :cry:

I was a roadie BITD, so really appreciate this bike, its lovely mate. So clean :D

Makes me want to take a pic of my Penine and post a thread. Although, first I need to dig it out of the garage loft and dust it down. It hasnt been out for a few years since I gave up road riding in favour of MTB's :lol:

Exactly my thoughts - although I also love the more garish Colnago (and others) paint jobs of the late 80s and onwards.
