OK. I threatened it. The time has come, brought about by a rather rare event. Three Pomps out for a ride together:

Mine against the garage door. Will get an action one soon and post it. Have recently changed the rear wheel but otherwise it's the same. My all year round commuter and occasional fun ride bike.

Bread of heaven, bread of heaven.

Shackleton, one of the old 135mm Pompinos. Currently waiting impatiently for me to rebuild both his wheels.

You mean it's just sat there by the road, waiting for one of us to collect it? :)

Old photos, but I don't think I have anything recent.

I'm not sure 'action shot' is the most appropriate terminology here  :demon:

Looks good. What are Midge bars like? I've often toyed with the idea of getting some.

I find them really comfortable, and can ride on the drops . hoods or tops like normal drop bars so no loss of positions

Mine arrived today. It's a disaster. The toe overlap is extreme and I simply cannot ride it safely. Even a midget with no toes would have difficulty.

I'll post a picture if I get a moment at some point.

Is it going back?

I'm shocked. The Pomp is the only fixer in my garage that doesn't have toe overlap. Oh dear...

Yes, it's going straight back.

It also arrived fully built up, which I'd not requested. Grr. Not having a great time with my bikes at the moment.
