    Wanted: Classic Time Trial "Bull Horn" Bars

    Wow, never seen anything like these before. Just after basic silver bull-horn bars to be honest, but I bet they'd look great if I was brave enough to use 'em! Might have to make my own by chopping and flipping a pair of standard road bars I think - not many around anymore it seems. Thanks for...

    Wanted: Classic Time Trial "Bull Horn" Bars

    Thanks for your kind offer Pierre, but those are pretty much the same bars as I'm wanting to replace. They didn't suit my bike's weird geometry at all :( Cheers Ox

    Wanted: Classic Time Trial "Bull Horn" Bars

    Trying to find a set of polished alloy 26mm 40/42cm bull horn bars for my 90's Low Pro time trial bike. Something along the lines of the Nitto RB-009 or 3T Moscow bars would be spot on as I need to fit road brake levers on them. Thanks Ox

    Colnago master 2010

    Thanks for that Sante, much appreciated :) I'm sure I will be returning to this forum post several times over the next few months for inspiration as I build my dream machine! I will post up pictures when complete. Kind regards Paul

    Colnago master 2010

    Hi Sante, Stunning bike, congratulations. My project this year is to build a Master frame up, coincidentally in Saronni Red with an 11s Campagnolo G/S and (probably) and a wheelset based on Ambrosio Excellight rims. I'd really appreciate it if you could possibly list the components you...

    20" wheeled child's Road Bike

    Glad you like it, although I do agree it's a bit of a "triggers-broom" :) That said, it's now surprisingly light, and the wheels are feather-weight so spins up incredibly quickly. The bike will get it's first race tomorrow at the Castle Combe Festival of Cycling, my Daughter can hardly...

    20" wheeled child's Road Bike

    Many thanks to this forum's Tiermat who not only sold me this lovely little steel-framed bike for my Daughter, but kindly delivered it to my colleague in York before it's long journey down to the West Country, much appreciated. http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=201954 After...

    20" (451) 32H rims - Help!

    For the life of me I can't find a UK supplier of lightweight alloy 20" 451 rims with 32H (who has any in stock anyway!) So far I've found suitable models in Sun Ringle CR-18, Velocity A23 and Alex R390 - none of which I can find available in the UK. Spent much of the day phoning round shops...

    Sorry, no idea what I did there. Just had another go and it seems to have worked this time!

    WTD: Tiny road bike for 6 year old (20" wheels)

    Hi, My 6 y.o. Daughter is already a mad-keen cyclist, taking part in a summer series at our local road racing circuit. I'd love to be able to make her up a tiny race bike, but there's very little choice on the market when it comes to 20" wheeled road bikes as you can imagine! I remember...

    Help pls! Need a frame ID or rough date

    Well, it's now roadworthy, although not sure if it's finished! I'll probably be shot down in flames, but I ended up using modern finishing kit as this will be my everyday commuting bike/winter trainer and needs to be reliable. I did de-logo/sticker everything however, to try and keep it looking...

    Campagnolo Braze-on 8-Speed Double Front Mech

    Anyone got an old Campag 6 or 8 speed braze-on front mech knocking around? I'd really appreciate it as my donated TT bike is missing it's front mech. I believe the GS is early '90's 8-speed Chorus, but anything compatible and salvageable condition-wise would be most welcome. Thanks Paul

    Simoncini Lo-Pro TT

    Re: Simonici Brilliant, thanks for the info Mark. I've been in touch with the guy who built in in the '90's - he seems to recall that it's an early Chorus 8-speed groupset, but that's great news if a later changer will work.

    Simoncini Lo-Pro TT

    Re: Simonici Many thanks for the info. The lack of Google returned matches makes me think this could be a bit of a one-off. Should raise a few eyebrows at the next club TT! A (probably daft) question if I may: I need to get hold of a Campagnolo Braze-on style front mech to match this...

    Simoncini Lo-Pro TT

    My latest project, a Simoncini Lo-Pro TT. Picked it up from my friend this afternoon - a donation to get me started Time Trialling this year. Some fabulous looking kit on it, although I know next to nothing about the brand or history of this particular bike at the moment. Any info gratefully...

    WTD: Quill Stem 25.4mm clamp, 22.2mm HS

    Hi, Looking out for a long reach quill stem for my '50s Holdsworth fixie build, in the region of 120mm - 135mm would be ideal. I've got 25.4mm pista bars and 22.2mm internal diameter headset - so something like an Ambrosio Gran Prix or similar would be spot on. I don't have a massive...
