My baby....my first DBR, bought at the tail end of '95.

I'm gradually getting her how I want her...just an XT chainset to go now.

I love the glint of carbon in the sunshine 8)

Never seen one of those before, looks very nice and light, how does it ride and how strong are the CF tubes if you take a tumble?

That's fantastic Jango, possibly the nicest DB i've seen to date.

Thank you for the positive comments.......to answer the question, how does it ride?

in a word......superbly 8) think of the livelyness of steel without the flex....the solid feel of aluminium, without the discomfort and the smoothness of Titanium and you're getting the picture........

As for crash damage......well that's always been my concern, but so far it's held up fine!

a reasonably accurate review of the bike and it's ride characteristics can be found here http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=24411

and here are the catalogue pages
