Went for a road ride over the Cleish Hills today since it might be the last for next few weeks after my cockcutaff op, er I mean cataract op tomorrow. Nearly forgot to stop to take pics, jist these worth looking at though.

First my "new" road bike that I recently finished putting together, a Reynolds 531c lugged steel frame.

Looking good guys!
OCP, looks a ride out as nice the bike looks great, weather seems to match as well. It's also good to see you cross over from the dark side ;)

jackosbournesnr, looking a great ride. Enjoy and soak it in.

Went for a wee road ride. Intended to be a cruise, sitting up enjoying the view on the 3 speed Pompino.

As Jamie knows I have an aversion to tarmac, so I ended up here.

(Erchless to Orrin dam track, part of HT550 route. Pic is looking back down the way I came and the wee loch in the far distance is Lochan Fada).

Jamie, fancy another of my "road" rides next time you're down? :)

Thanks Jamie, but I've already sampled the dark side though. A couple of years ago I rebuilt an '80s Claud Butler Majestic for my wife that she had been given by her brother-in-law when he upgraded to a modern carbon bike. She also has the matching mixte ladies Majestique that had belonged to her sister but it's in bits in attic.
In August '16 I bought a Cannondale R3000si off ebay then upgraditus took over. Changed everything on bike apart from headset and bars, brifters. Having always liked lugged steel frames I got a Reynolds 531Competition frame/forks off ebay earlier this year which I built up with a mostly, various Ultegra groupset, wheels included but with a Campag headset which was already on frame. The 531 forks didnae stay on frame, got a Kinesis 6061 aluminium fork off ebay for no other reason than it's shiney, I think. :oops:
The name on frame, Briton Racing Bikes, is a puzzle, can only find one other reference online about the name and it is asking for same info but no response.
Anyway it rides so much more comfortably than the Cannondale, much less harsh on crappy roads.


Brian, that's no an aversion neebs, it's a phobia........ 8)
