    You won't regret it despite the fact it may only get ridden two weeks a year. Used over enough visits it'll ultimately pay for itself through saved baggage costs, even how it affects you getting to and from the airports, not to mention as you say the hassle of it all.

    I keep my Road Logic at my in-laws this way. Just turn up, pump the tyres and go.

    To be honest after writing that I did just have to stare at it aghast a little while.

    It's a Litespeed Classic from I believe 2001.. so not that old.

    @xDOMx know anyone who's doing/done the Happougahara hillclimb?

    I may register for this year's event in either the B category or the 'Heavyweight' :o Tho' if I train there's a good chance I'd be just under that 80kg mark.

    I'd be aiming to not come last.

    Seeing as the dropout's haven't been completed there's also a possibility that the fork legs haven't been correctly brazed to the crown and likewise the steerer to the crown. It's an accident waiting to happen.

    If it's PF30 you seem to need one Rotor E (0.5mm) and two D (11.5mm) spacers.

    [edit] There's a better chart here.

    Since last posting in here 3 yrs ago the numbers have gone from 12 bikes and 6 framesets to 15 bikes and 4 framesets

    2 x modern road bike (one at home, one at the in-laws)
    2 x gravel bike (one at home, one at the parents)
    3 x retro-modern road bike (two at home, one at the in-laws)
    3 x vintage road bike (two at home, one at the in-laws)
    1 x modern audax bike
    1 x touring bike
    2 x mountain bike (one squishy, one a daily beater)
    1 x fixie

    3 x vintage road frames
    1 x vintage track frame

    Not such an 'improvement' as the target definitely over the last two years has been to cut down to maybe 10 built up and no real projects. Definitely a problem.
