Viddy well, me droogies ;)

Steerer tube is getting chopped at the weekend, and a couple of bottle cages will be purchased but other than that we're pretty much done. Maiden ride next week, providing it's not too icy.

mcshroom on his SS back in the spring.  I just put it up because it was a lovely day and I like the photo.

Looks idyllic.
Some people say I'm self-obsessed but that's enough about them.

HK's track bike is a Geoff Roberts and she reckons Geoff frames are better than the Chas variety (of which, she has 2).

 Many people have said that, in fact many of the early Roberts were built by Geoff or other frame builders

It is more interesting to find out how many of the more recent Roberts have been made by Chas Jr.

Interzen.  That's fab.  ;D That brightened up an otherwise dull evening!

I like orange.  I really do.  I have two orange bikes. 

However, it's the tape - just a little too much pop there.

Other than that - looks fab!
Right! What's next?

Ooooh. That sounds like a daft idea.  I am in!

N+1
 Some have already seen this on Facebook but I thought it should go here too, Geoff Roberts has joined our club and has started making frames again so I ordered a Custom steel frame, made with Columbus Spirit tubing and carbon forks and painted with a touch of Catford CC Claret & Gold colours  ;D
 This is so good I love it.

I saw photos of the frame on Flickr and I thought you were flogging it - glad to see I was wrong as it's a beaut.

Definitely not flogging this one, but struggling for room in the shed now so something might need to go :)

It sho' 'nuff is - it's my 'get well' present to myself.
Acquisition was also driven by the need to play catch-up on nearly 3 months of lost training time which, given typical trail conditions at this time of year, will mean long road rides. Mind-pummellingly dull, perhaps, but miles are miles.

It may actually end up with less - the bars are double-wrapped at the moment for the sake of my knackered wrist, but if it doesn't work then there'll be a layer of tape coming off and gel padding going on. My bar-tape of choice is the Profile adhesive-free stuff because not only is it available in electric orange, it's also dead easy to change and doesn't leave manky sticky bits on your handlebars.

I'm thinking that a couple of black PDW 'Bird' cages will round the job off nicely.

I was about to ask who makes tape THAT bright. Files for future reference...  :)

The section bender's work in the background did lead me to wonder whether you took that pic on Old Street or Wandsworth Bridge.
Same section bender is responsible for both, BTW.

I love the contrast between Interzen's retina shattering ORANGE-NESS and Clarion's moody nocturnal shots...
