Well its finally finished, took a bit of time (and a lot of money!!) to source all the correct parts, most parts NOS. Spec list to follow virtually identical spec to Gregs machine even down to the rare tyres, really pleased how this one turned out. Question now is what is it worth ??

Heres some temporay pictures needs a polish and need to apply th Scott stickers on the Drop Bars.

Took it for a spin and WOW 1, how it climbs I had read reviews off other people who own Calfees and it just glides up hill. and 2 the tubulars never ridden on them before but they make a bike feel so much more in control.

Incredible... no corners cut.

Did you ride it with the Carnacs I sold you?

I seem to remember Lemond's bike being nicknamed the 'Batbike'... very apt.

Hi Indecs

Not road it yet with the carnacs just took it out for a spin with trainers on, the Time pedals being very new and sat for 16 years are very stiff to get into. Might swap back to some Campagnolo Look not correct to the bike but at least I would feel confident riding it. Managed to get some of the Time Carnac inserts off Ben again :)

A work of art! Everything looks immaculate. I'm sure it'll prove worth the effort in collecting the parts and I'm also sure it'll keep putting a big smile on your face every time you take it for a spin!

Steve - I've never had a problem with knees on Drop Ins. Now I'm older and heavier I find them a bit flexy when down on the bottom sections, but when I was a wreckless teenager I used to put my aero bars on that section and thought nothing of it!
