    Owner is the lucky swine who doesn't have to look at it while they're racing.

    Undoubtedly a towering technical achievement, but just because you can doesn't mean you should.

    Needs Galli and SunTour.

    Finished the brake cables yet?

    Try removing the front bolt and levering the stem clamp slightly more open with a large screwdriver or similar whilst jiggling the bars, it has always worked for me....

    What he said, takes no time at all with a file, add a few quid for anodising and nobody will know it ain't pista!

    I'm taking a wild guess here, but are you a local resident of non-brown complexion with sufficient funds?

    I'm sure the area is absolutely rammed with 'hard-working families' but you don't see them because the buggers are working hard. The fashionably unfashionable, however, are highly visible.

    If you need any help shouting at the last rider in the Devil or screwing up the scores in the Points I'm yer man. Otherwise, I'll just wander along and heckle in a random manner.

    Words 'caliper' and 'brake' in previous post are probably a hint.

    Tinkoff? Trump? Blair? You could be onto something......

    Senor Bear, I don't think you've had any haterz, just (probably) well-meaning 'how-I-would have-done-it-betterz'. Not their bike, not your problem, they can build their own!

    Errr, I had noticed, hence I said that my road bikes differ subtly and my TT and track bikes more so. Actually, I couldn't resist checking and the variance between 5 road, road fixed and touring bikes is 22mm, this has never given me a problem. The bike I had a fitting done for sits in the centre of this range.
