Mark Reilly is a lovely guy...the frame was built ages ago...but how long does it take to polish? Perhaps off it to me at a discount...and maybe I will then get it painted next year...I write emails that are friendly..(forget the phone)...I am lucky to get a reply the following week...with a cryptic message...I quickly reply but don't get a reply...so still none the wiser....yes...I perhaps should have stuck to 2nd hand/used frames...but what do I do?
I saw this Roberts and thought...ooh is it worth canceling and losing my deposit and getting this instead and coughing up a further £1500?
Geoff (Roberts) is without peer in the frame building business, see some builders frames in raw steel - glossy paint hides a multitude of sins.
Wouldn't tolerate that treatment from MR.
Surprised someone hasn't snapped this up.
Have bit the bullet and bought this. Hope you don't feel gazumped old bean and that you get your Reilly post haste to your full satisfaction...
Do you still have any of your Mavic bits pls? A bit up in the air still but would be interested if you do.
Drop me a message
Good..glad someone has bought this as it is excellent Roberts opportunity at a great price.
I am grouching but not likely to cancel...so no hard feelings in the slightest...look forward to seeing photos of the completed build.
Swithering on whether to give it fancy new clothes from Roberts too or just keep it cheap and functional by getting a powdercoat as new paints don't seem to last very well and would like to use this as a nice but not ridiculously expensive commuter.
I vote classy paint and Mavic. That said I've got a pair of Middleburns I was toying with putting on it myself (+DA 7700) if you wanted to go modern...
