    Hi all,

    Looking for a 60-62cm bike, suitable for 6’4 rider. Budget is around £200 mark, but there is some slight room for manoeuvre. Geared, not fixed.

    I’m helping a friend source one for her bf’s birthday, so need to try and wrap things up before February.

    Hoods arrived today, so I'm pleased to say the build is finished. Think I will try to sell before January (and the madness Brexit will bring to shipping).

    Black, matching the saddle and cables. Not a massive fan of the gum

    Two weeks to the first post and the bike is now complete (just waiting for some Campag brake hoods to arrive from Serbia).

    Tyres arrived too yesterday, have inflated them and stuck them in a cupboard to stretch out. Have had Conti's before and they were a pain to mount. Today has been a day of arrivals - NOS Cinelli Volare saddle from Malta and a new KMC Z8.3 EPT chain. Should be ready to build everything up tomorrow.

    Spent yesterday cleaning up the handlebars I bought from Italy, lots of old tape which took some shifting - used WD40 and a kitchen non-scratch wire brush. Some slight rust on the bolt of the stem came off easily and the cockpit looks brand new

    Tufo tape on the Nisi rims awaiting the arrival (tomorrow hopefully) of a set of Conitental Podium tubular tyres, can anyone help me identify the model of the rim?

    The Regina Extra BX 6 speed looks lovely, was told its a rare Oro finish and basically NOS.
