nice looking build. let us know what you tell the wife!
Ha ha! Used the old politicians trick of 'burrying' news
She has been after this bloody new house for months and drove me mad about it. Anyway, our offer was finally accepted on Friday and I returned from work with a bottle of wine and flowers in one hand and a Yo in the other- she didn't even blink
Then on Sunday after my early morning ride she looked up from the papers and commented on the bike. She said it was absolutely horrible and looks like something a teenager would have back in the early 90's. It has been christened the 'Kawabunga Bike'
Bloody women- no taste!
Thanks for the cranks offers guys but I'm after some Cooks for it in polished finish (they will wear better!)
First ride on Sun was amazing by the way- I really understand why people go on about Fats, it flew up and around everything, took everything in its stride, forks were good, tyres were shite (will have to fit some modern rubber-sorry) brakes were great even with 5 river crossings to tackle. Only glitch was the Ti bars squeeked in the Ringle stem all morning which got right on my tits. I tightened them up a little more when I got home and all seems fine now.
Will post up some pics later of it getting filthy in the glorious Northumberland sunshine (raritat!!)
