    Seem to avoid the hipster tax too, which is nice.

    For the Merckx, never loved the red hubs and keep pinging rear spokes, opened a set of almost NOS 32h Record hubs and Chorus cassette, both a bit shop soiled but unused. TB14 in grey on the way. Then might get a black stem. Maybe.

    Longest I've had a bike without painting (and regretting) it. Got a hankering for pale yellow. May not happen. Rims are Halo white Line. I really wanted eyelets to protect from leg grunt. Had some on another bike for 10 years, while many rims have come and gone.

    Thread now with added Merckx.

    Important questions: Can black mudguards work with silver rims? Is it acceptable to swap out a Thomson post for FSA in the interest of aesthetic harmony? Will the misalignment of the Middleburn logos haunt my every waking thought ? Should the red triangle find it's way back to the bike it was intended for? Can anything rekindle my love of Glitter Dreams? Tough day at the bike stand.

    Mmm. Not sure this is going in the right direction. These photos seem to suggest the Chorus were the snazzier.

    Thanks. Looked almost exactly like that in person. Ride inspiration? I did wheelie off the slag!
