  • Stunning day, some lovely people turned with superb examples of Roberts bicycles and to enjoy the sunshine, talking to fellow owners and to Geoff Roberts of course, and to enjoy the BBQ and cold beers. Many rode to Geoff's place too.
    The track bike in the first two images is the very machine Glen Mitchell's 1980 Moscow Olympics machine that he competed (at the age of 22) on in the team pursuit: a real weight weanie and the second image shows the aero tubes (made by Roberts during the Anerley period).

  • That track bike is amazing! He’s cut the rear dropouts down a fair bit! Looks like they are thinner at the bottom than the track nuts!
    A friend has a similar tubed Lo-Pro ‘Emperor Sport’, it’s a beauty but sadly weights more than you’d think!

    Any more information on that 650b disc mismatched tyre machine? Is it legit?

  • Glen's track bike is amazing when you consider how old it is, recently restored by Geoff (Geoff and Glen are old buddies). Yes, it is legit, I'm compiling details on Geoff's collection.
    Cheers, John.
