  • Looks great! My in laws rented a house near Bergerac a while back. Amazing wine tours on the bikes, though hitting the first tasting at 10am was always a bit much. That looks like a decent bottle, tested it yet?

  • Excellent! Some metal mudguards and you've got yourself a real winner.

  • Canal ride to a cafe with my family on a sunny Sunday

  • That's lovely, does the weight distribution affect handling much?

  • Doesn’t seem to- rode it no hands and it felt fine - the overall weight as pictured with nothing in the bags is 16kg so that’s the main disadvantage.!

  • That looks excellent, just good proportions and angles (and paint job obviously) all over the place. Finished with the chunky tyres -very nice indeed.

  • That Bergerac theme tune.... will never leave me.

  • yep, love it.

  • Thanks! Playing with set ups - 13.2kg as seen. Will swap out tape for white and a silver stem

  • Looks great. What model are the Maxxis tyres and how do they roll on the road? Much drag?

  • Thanks- maxxis pace 26 x 2.2. They seem to roll fine but can update after my weekend jaunt

  • What a bike. Love it. Cinder Cone's have never looked so good. Drops, Campagnolo, loaded - so sweet.

  • Route for the weekend sorted.
    Waiting on a silver stem to be delivered

  • Made it to charmouth- 7 hours in the saddle with some downright offensive hills in Dorset that nearly finished me off. Bike was comfortable, heavy and slow - next time I’ll do on a bike that is half the weight!

  • Excellent. Looks like it's great to ride.

  • I just weighed my 26" - it came in at 17,2 kg!!
    So comfortable though and the 17,2 are with rack+basket and mudguards.

    Yours look properly good though. Love the campag.

  • real class that, in many ways
