Is it going to be a light weight build or another 36lb monster?

I'd have an old geometry brand new lightweight frame with most of the parts above - a bit like an Eagle Jaguar or a MK1 Escort Zetec, if you get what I'm gabbling on about.

Nah, that's getting dangerously toward road bike territory and you know I fear the Lycra!

I won a TA Cyclotouriste chainset at the weekend. Bargain too considering I paid about half the price of a full set of rings.

You won't believe who the seller was either. A clue?? My favourite maker of low end poop. :shock: :D :lol:

Wheels dropped off at the builder this morning and a fork is on its way to Winters for some canti mounts brazing on. Pedals next and then I'm good to go.

just the frame to sort out :wink:

Managed to get the wheels finished and tyres mounted over the holidays. Very nice they are too. Pics to follow. Until then, here are pics of the lovely TA crankset and a set of Dia Compe cantis that the Klunker donated now it has hub braked wheels.

Almost there with the parts. Soon i will be able to build them onto the mystery frame :wink:

You bought the cranks of Brant and you're going to nail it all on to a Ragley aren't you?

What do I win?
