There is a possibilty of Retrobike putting a display stand together, but its only a possibility at this stage. Details will follow if its happening.

Will be my race bike for sure, the Dyna-Tech can sit on the Retrobike stand looking pretty.

So where is the third one coming from? You got something hidden away Neil or is TD hitting the trails?

Update

My wheels have arrived, a beautiful set of Pete Matthews built White Industries titanium hubs on Mavic 231 CD rims. I've fiited these with Panaracer Smoke and Dart tyres, i'm on the hunt for some suitable skewers to finish them off, but they are looking great.

I've got a carbon seat post on the way which will replace the USE titanium one that I've stolen from my Team Raleigh. I also have an Avocet 40R Air saddle in the post, these were used by Tim Davies in 1992. I'd still like to use the Flite, but will try the Avocet first.

Finally, the forks have been polished and had decals applied.

I'm desperate to ride it, but want it to be as I want it first. Hopefully it will be ready for the North Wales Retrobike meet this weekend, if not it will be thrown in at the deep end at the HoNC the weekend after.
