Well, for starters I bought this simply to get some nice wheels for another project. :oops: Eventually turned up today and it's in showroom condition...just absolutely like it has never been ridden.

Gosh, I'm slightly confused with the references.
1. Erm....what's the link with Ameybrook? Apologies to Amybrook, sorry, is this a good thing or a bad thing.
2. Pickle...that's the one I bought...turned out way nicer than the photo's suggested...took several hours to remove one side of the campus cycle stickers...tomorrow I will remove the other side. Unusually patient of me. :shock: :lol:
Heathy......another ride would be great but
1. I ride singlespeed now....that hill was a bastard with many gears
2. I have no car anymore
3. You are a fit bastard :lol:
Be good peeps, have a great weekend, Hamilton for pole and win!
Cheers, Carl

This build is ok, it seems like HB sourced decent stuff, and like I say, if it sees dirt, then awesome. And if it makes him happy, even better.

But showroom?

Basement.

:lol: Why do you reply to my post in the third person. I didn't build it, just bought it for some spares...not my bag really but it turned out to be in superb order.
Rode it home tonight...took ages compared to my singlespeed Kona :?
Don't think it's a keeper.

Carl,

If you decide to split, first dibs on the post (if it is 30.4), saddle and stem!
