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.
Don't say that!
@TM obviously this was all well researched. It feels foolish even saying this but think I'm out of the game now for a while. Moved quite a few bikes/parts around to fund the Moser and this, which should scratch every kind of itch I'll have between them, and the Brompton of course. Nice to think I've ended up with 3 steel steeds which should hopefully now get a decent crack of the whip.
@spotter Sorry missed your question - nope not tubeless just yet. Looks like lots of benefits but still a bit unsure. If I get a spout of punctures sure I'll look into it with more motivation. Thanks very much sir.
@tyeness Thank you, and thanks for building yours also. Do post an updated photo in your thread would be very interested to see.
Silver would have looked better (subjectively) but I hear black chainrings on silver arms are all over Radavist so good enough for me. I used to be that guy who'd spray/strip it but can't be bothered these days. Looks alright.
One of the initial inspirations
@hma no I totally get what you mean, there isn't really a 'transition' it's all very functional and not very flowy. I don't mind this look too much although by the time this one wears out there might be a few more well priced options.
@josh @tyeness by my standards I kind of fudged the right side but it'll do for now. Thanks a lot, been a few years since riding with cotton tape and feels good to be back.
@Jaap @Dantheman @Tijs @gillies @Hulsroy lots of love this evening! Thanks y'all.
