I must be lucky I'm in group of five who ride neo retro here's some pictures.
maybe we need a forum MGOOF ride
Can do if we are nearby.
I'm in London's famous London. Looks like you are somewhere more... exotic?
That last picture was a road trip to Champagne in France .we'll in Surrey.
Surrey Forum MGOOF ride. That's got to be worth doing one weekend
This pleases me. Well done
This Colnago Master is my next dream bike...wonderful!
I just realised I forgot to share my updated Lee Cooper build (original post).
Compared to the OG build, I swapped out the (as it turned out) cracked CK headset for a nice black Tange Falcon. I also got an inline post and have been testing that outrageously expensive 3D-printed Specialized.
I rode the bike for most of the summer and absolutely love it. The fork is more flexible than a flexy thing, but in practice, it's not really an issue.
You can read my full write up on BikeRadar if you're interested in every wee detail.
I might like this more than MGOOF.
Nice and nice write up! (Don’t think the red powder coat was original under my shitty black rattle can job!)
What is the cut-off for ‘old frame’
cars are easy to define with vintage, veteran, post vintage and classic. etc.
It's subjective, but for me it has to have a 1" threaded fork. So pretty old.

Just got hold of this too keep me busy over the next few days. Not sure if I'll do a full thread or just pop updates in here.
I've had an itch for a mgoof for a while and passed on a couple of nice frames this year, which I later regretted. With my old road bike suddenly becoming unusable i finally got off the fence as this was the right size, in budget, and has sparkles and fades.
Plan is to move over everything I can from the old bike, and longer term get some carbon forks and wheels to offset the weight (it's cromor so not the lightest). The Fondriest came as a period correct yet dog's breakfast build so all that stuff is getting sold to fund newer parts I can't transfer.
Like the new frame colour popping. view off the Canyon in mirror love the Capture.
Yeah the black rattle job inspired me to do this nice blue tbf!!
Thought I post here 1st .my mate is selling his colnago master 56×56 groupset I think chorus with campagnolo carbon wheels I only have the one photo for now
may be interested in the wheels if he splits...
Lovely frame. My pal had one a few years ago and when the sun came out the paint looked lush. Was this one up for sale in Swindon? if so shoot me a pm with what you wan't to sell and prices. Might be keen on the suntour bits at least
I pass on your interest.
Good spot! Yeah that’s the one. Glad to hear that about the paint, I was very pleased that the ebay photos didn't really capture the paint.
I’ll shoot you a pm - pretty much everything besides the headset and the (past it) bottom bracket is available so I’ll be putting an ad in classifieds for the rest at some point
Must be nice to have an MGOOF mate to ride with. My riding buddies don't understand anything about it. They just think I'm alternative.
