Turned out GREAT Chris! :D

I love the M910 seat post. It really ties the whole build together 8) (But you could've pulled it out a bit further just for the photo ;) ) Proper grey XTR cables, shiny XTR parts even the end caps on bars really makes it all a super build.

Chrome, red and gold are such regal colours, a sure winner. Great choice of tyres too. Gil's work on the graphics was really good. (Takes one, to know one!)

Bravo mate.


Cheers Reg

The photos really don’t do the XTR justice.... and the kit works so much better....

The green Lotus with the campy is tidy Peachy. Not read the whole thread but don't recall these from back in the day, any magazine scans or similar.

Hello John, yes the Green does look like its becoming the favourite... I've not seen any scans but basically these were licensed 'British Eagle' frames to capitalise on the success of Chris Boardman in Barcelona '92.. all a bit overpriced really for what they were, Green dressed in Shimano Deore LX, Magenta DX, Black XT... then we think they all jumped up a level when the black went 'XTR'

Our Green version (my sons 16") is in proper BRG and the Campag was his choice..... :xmas-wink:

Brilliant!! Glad you found a brace :D And having them in different Lotus liveries will look amazing. Gil is probably now sick of Lotus Logo's after dealing with me but he definitely has them on file now :mrgreen:

Oh…now there’s an idea, I’ll check what he’s got first…..

Cheers Mark, frustratingly I’m still waiting for the correct length tapered axle to turn up… (P*** Poor Preparation by me)
