I have just mown the lawn, and it looks great.
Normally I would be cleaning the bikes right now and then I'd take a photo and post it on here.
But not today, I am remaining firm.

Yeah, but for how long  ;) ;D

Aidan,
Your Airborne looks absolutely awesome.
I love that look - the colours are just perfect to my eye.
That is what I hope to achieve or similar when we finally get our Cycle2Work scheme up and running.
That is so lovely.

I have to agree, that Airborne is beautiful  :P

Oh come ON people. Has your smuttiness been left behind due to handling problems when you flew over here?

This was my bike, but I sold it for only £90 on ebay despite its 600 groupset and Columbus tube



I sold this one too, just felt it the wrong bike for me



This is my pub bike, I have toured thousands of miles on this and will kep its ashes if it dies



This is the type of bike I should have bought ages ago, but not this model, I wish I had bought the better grade with the Rholoff (sp)

My pompino with new handlebar tape, tyres and mudguards. Spankingly clean as well.


Edit looks crap reduced to 640x480 so here is the link to the 800x600.

Very nice, Del. I have absolutely no need for one of those, but I want one. :-\

Clarion -- where's the "turning green with envy" smiley?

HD--that's about the nicest RB-1 I've seen. Where did you find those fenders?

Clarion - that is rather nice.
And your timing chain is, well, just right.  :thumbsup:

It's a bit weird, but actually quite wonderful.

Frenchie, could you please post some more pictures with right focus?

Clarion, I think he's not that well known outside of Scandinavia so your excused!

Scott, those are NOS Bluemels I found at my LBS. Bought lots in different colours. Masked and spray painted the stripes with primer and some Opel Ascona "British racinggreen". Added some icecreambox mudflaps and Scotch reflective stripes in the back for damp audax events! Cheap but nice riding frame designed by Grant Pedersen, and one of few roadbikes that had 28mm tires fitted as standard:

Here in it's the current 105 triple setup:

The RB-1 replaced this Daccordi-DBS LaMigliore -94. Now used as a fair weather/café-racer:

Nice Marin simon, I like the ones with Hydroformed tubes, now they have slimmed them down a bit...

Windy, Lovely steed's and what great weather you have!
How is your club coming along, had any run-ins with the Aardberg lot yet? 

/Memo to myself/
Must visit Scotland next year!
/Memo off/

Thanks Sergeant Pluck! Just wish I could still use 28mm tires. Might set it free if and when I finish my current pile of projects.  :-[

They used to be fatter?! I think this model had boggo round tubes before the 08 version. The next model up (Point Reyes) certainly did as an LBS in Bath still has one in stock.
