La Chignole as it was then. Slightly different now though, different chainset, different decals and about to be retired.


NB It's for sale too, at least some of it is, all of it at the right price.

Blah

Custom XACD with matching forks. Proper winter weapon, those are 32's with deep drop dual pivot brakes.

NB: this one is for sale too. This is a fairly old picture and bars and stem have changed. I haven't gotten around to writing a for sale ad for it yet, but PM if you're interested /  for more details.

I wondered when that rather fine machine was going to appear. It's a stunner.

My Raleigh 653 - 1989 Team Replica. Readied for the grass track racing at Mildenhall this weekend, which is why the brakes and a few other bits have been removed.

You wont be saying that when all of the Specialized themed bikes become items of great desire and their value sky rockets  :smug:



I'm not stocking up on them though............... bike values can go down hugely as well as up  ;D

I think  I would have left the pedals on though, it'll make your races much easier

It probably leaves more people "shaken" not "stirred".  ;D

My Langster on the way to the Axe Edge top in the Peak District. Stock bike except for a new wheelset (the rear is a couple of weeks old), my favourite saddle, a Flite Ti, and a USE seatpost (and a new transmission!). 72'' gear, to go pretty much anywhere and spin on the flat. Lovely, lovely frame, these Langster, and feather weight too.
