Usually preceded by some serious grunting and followed up with staring at phone for 10 minutes while sitting on machine.
I'd join, so long as it's not almac's early start!
Sadly, I don't think I am leader material.
Interesting to see Pantani on the cover of the Training Bible ...relevant to the contents?
I did message you, not sure why you didn't see it.
Dibs - pm on way
Sure, if a pair in working order and good condition.
Campag brakes 90s era, good/very good condition.
London collection/meet preferred.
Southeastern trains getting in on the act.
1950s and 60s gold frames are my all-time favourites; I have quite a few at the moment as I use reading glasses as well as regular ones. Algha and Rodenstock from that era are great - Kings Cross Eyes usually has a good selection of vintage/classic frames with prices much lower than new frames elsewhere.
Haha, yes; 1960s gold-rimmed. I still have my 'Buddy Holly's' too but, sadly, my first ever pair - pink plastic rims - got broke playing football.
I've been wearing glasses since I was 7 (short-sighted and astigmatic). I'm now 71 and over the last ten years or so my eyesight has actually gone into reverse and been improving and I can now wear again glasses which I first wore when I was 15.
In my experience they are all much of a muchness so it's worth finding your local independent optician. (I go to Mr Lim in Crouch End, no frills but with a technician who makes a great job of fitting lenses into the vintage frames which I take in).
Not in London now for a few days but happy to deliver when back. I'll keep in touch.
goosenose has first dibs on the two Missoni and Kenzo
user61836 - I'd prefer not to post
youClown - these would be a bit on the wide side (date from the 80s)
Missoni x2, Zegna, Kenzo and Prochownick
I still have some of these left should you need to smarten up before heading back to the office or anywhere else.
The Chinese silk
Here's mine, built with Campag 11 speed Athena by Rob Sargent.
I have a Cinelli frame in Columbus Genius tubing, had it for about ten or so years. Rides beautifully, never dinged or dented even after being hit by a motorbike (it's 54cm and I'm about 60kg).
Campagnolo Palladio - both short and long-sleeve - look great and work very well; I would also recommend PedalEd. Both are, of course, reassuringly expensive as is the rouleur list.
I feel the need to start wearing a watch again...
I still do it the way my Mum taught me - don't we all?
As a 70 year old in good health in North London I was surprised to get a call from my GP surgery yesterday telling me I had an appointment today to receive the Covid vaccine. I duly went along (Lordship Lane N17 health centre) where the receptionist was unsure I should get it but the manager gave the go-ahead. All very efficiently done but I'm puzzled as London, I believe, is lagging in the roll-out.
My OH got this, kinda 'here you are, do it yourself'.
Apparently, the company has done very well this year...
Being seventy I get offered the flu jab every year and take up the offer, can't recall ever having side effects. Last time I had flu, I think, was as a kid (last similar thing was chicken pox about 15 years ago). Am I right in thinking that you should take up the offer as you might be a carrier without any symptoms but still pass it on?
