well, new frame to be precise. i'm too weedy to stretch its legs properly- still not 100% after a bad dose of flu. i managed to get to work on it this morning but it took forever.
it's dedaccai's new 'zero replica' tubeset and seems very light for steel, even with my 'heavy' wheels on, & despite my tired limbs, it's incredibly quick off the line. hopefully this one won't end up under a car...

white bar tape during the UK winter, that's a bold statement I must say.

true, though it's the rubbery stuff so i'm hoping it might be a bit more washable than the foamy stuff.

nice.

I like the looks of it. It makes me wish that my 'fast' bike was tuned up. It will feel like a new bike when it is.

cheers :) shame about the fat pleb riding it....

i geared up for summer this weekend (48x16, about 78"), perhaps a bit too soon in the year as the old legs are complaining a bit after doing so much grovelling into the wind. soul destroying!
