You're a braver man than me to put triple clamps on an aged alloy frame that was never designed for them.

they ain't staying on! my last san an had the dented tube when i got it, this one actually hasn't :D
they were just on my shed roof with a wheel attatched :lol:

as for the period build......i don't do that, if you want to see a period build....get a catalogue :wink:
my build is easy......take the bits off my other bikes and see what is best....stick it on the san an....and ride it! :D

i really want to start assembling it, but i got a gig in bedford today, and i need my other bike ridable for tomorrow! :cry:

Looks good as a road bike, I've seen a few wearing slicks now.

I don't know if mine will be my main bike its still in the shop for a few days. I might keep it for off-road so I don't have to spend any money on it and put some slicks on my hard tail bike for the road.
