    That would be fantastic, I’ll pm you my details and please let me at least cover postage costs on the pirellis! Had a read and I think the corsas sit a little wider than specified so think they’re going to be too big and a bit of a waste for you to send up, sure if you put them in the classifieds for a reasonable asking price they’d disappear pretty quickly! Know exactly what you mean about the wide tyres, with the original fork I had to put a 20c on the front of the rossin so even 25 felt huge, never mind when I got the steamroller!
    Yeah you’ve put together a really lovely build there, is your celeste Bianchi a road bike rather than track?

    Haha I’m so tempted that I’ll probably at least wrap the bars with the pink just to try it out and see. Might be a couple weeks until I can be arsed doing that but if I do I’ll definitely get a picture loaded up to hear people’s views on it!

    Haha yeah that’s a monster isn’t it?! It’s a 57! Need to size down really, or look at a larger cog so it’s more fun getting up these hills around here.

    Bits and pieces have arrived and the place is looking like a proper building site now. Couple pieces damaged on arrival but nothing major and have photos for sending off to them.

    The sky turned gorgeous last night so snuck up to get a moody shot, told the builder he could use it in his ads for a discount haha

    Hey, yeah thanks for the input, think that may be what I’m trying to subconsciously achieve with the wheel switch as well

    @kl haha took this second photo and posted just for you 😂

    Should have some more photo updates today. The truss and first load of the house frame is getting delivered today. Due to the shortages the groundworks aren’t quite ready so it’s going to have to sit in the field for the next couple weeks until the concrete slab is poured and cured..

    @ltc @DayTripper_Mk2 thank you very much, really chuffed with how it’s coming along. Not sure if the rims almost make it look stumpy if you know what I mean?Considering maybe switching to these wheels off my rossin..?

    @fc that would be great, thank you very much! As a thank you could I send you the rubinos I just took off these, they’re a 25 so might be your goldilocks size? Just put them on this so they’re pretty much new? It’s you with the black super pista isn’t it? Good job! It’s a nice level of colour coordination without being too matchy matchy!

    Haha talking about matchy matchy.. I noticed my pink fizik tape on my steamroller is a pretty good match to the pink on the rear of the trackshark… is that too much? Or is that exactly what fluoro green and pink track bikes from the 80s are for..? Would that negate the white saddle? If I did it would it suit a switch back to the regal it came with..?

    Thanks @hippy ! Picked up a used set of gp4000 in 25 and they do feel noticeably bigger and a bit comfier than the rubinos, maybe just because I’m looking for it..? Clearance allows it to the point it almost feels like a small 28 would fit if these are a measured 27.. which surprises me for a track frame of this era

    Hate to think what the others were like, even with that ridiculousness he was one of the “good” barons..

    Thank you very much! Should get some video and some pictures of the frame coming off the ferry and down the road on Monday, can’t wait for that!

    @russmeyer wow really? Yeah that’s the one! When we’re you here. Such a quaint wee village street off that harbour too! Still haven’t been round the castle grounds in case I get in trouble.. haha can you tell there is a bit of underlying imposter syndrome going on with me, I thought I’d be renting a bike oil covered shithole in a city for the rest of my days, nothing like this..
