Almost finished, not ridden yet and I'd love some RC30s if only I could find some with a long enough steerer

Must admit that the build is only pseudo retro - the Thomson post, Hope stem and Avid Ti v's are cheating a little.

I think the XLM is one of the nicest looking bikes, ever.

Mrs Kestonian, on the other hand, thinks you have a nice garden!!!
