On 29 May 1965, Tom Simpson rode in the London–Holyhead race, the longest unpaced one-day race, with a distance of 265 miles he won in a bunch sprint. Simpson set a record of ten hours and twenty-nine minutes and with an average speed of 25 mph.

Okay maybe that too, bonkers weather for February.
Looks brilliant, the tidied track ends is very pleasing.
Oil tank tig welded and apparently not leaking now, only £20 too. Will be putting thin layers of paint on this evening and hopefully plumbing back in tomorrow. May even go for a quick ride to settle the oil level and test the repair.
No need to apologise, bikes looks great and love the elegant steel fork. Wish I could slam the stem and not have so much post showing but alas.
Be quick... Genesis Equilibrium 653 disc frameset for £220 BIN posted
I'd read similar reviews but was withholding judgement until trying as never used long drop calipers before. Also coming from 6800 calipers which are amazing wasn't expecting much - good to know you're another happy owner. Might have to try the compressionless housings...
Thanks very much, currently waiting on a compact 6800 chainset in 175 then should be rolling
