    A rather worn pair of road/cross wheels - Specialized 32 hole hubs and Alex ACE19 rims, Shimano 9/10 spd fitting.
    Bearings are pretty grindy, rims a bit out, though I have trued them up slightly. Might be of interest for a beater or cycling inspired sculpture...
    Thought I'd check before I chuck them out.

    Pick up from Peckham please. PM me if you want them.

    Just bought David Millar's autobiography.

    What's Millar's book like? I bet there's a nice endorsement quote from Lance on the back!

    I'm in Chadwick Road and know the guy who owns 'On Time Pizza'.
    He tells me that the chap who's renting it from him (to start the bike shop) already has one shop up in Norf London and this is his 'branching out' venture. Apparently he makes 'custom' bikes in the way of lowriders/choppers etc. so it may not suit everyone's taste.
    According to the leaflet he put through our door though he 'will not be beaten on service', and promises to supply all normal spares etc. so it may prove pretty useful, specially if he knows how to build/mend frames proper. I'm all for a really local LBS.
