Time for a bicycle porn thread I reckon

    mauvais change has become unavoidable

    Checked the build printout for my bike and it's the wrong size frame, large instead of medium :facepalm: so got to go back. Actually rides fine but given the money should probably get it right. Needless to say the shop (a workers co-operative) has been great so no worries - these things happen.

    If it helps, think of them as hand-crafted works of art.

    Bungle73 I was there, now I'm here

    Here's my current pride and joy (on the road side). Since I bought it I've changed the brake calipers/pads for better ones, and swapped out the stock wire bead 25c Ultra Sport IIs for a pair of folding Continental 4 Seasons 28c.

    Edit: Oh, and I swapped the stem for a 10 mm longer one.

    It is.

    And the small matter of London-Edinburgh-London too. That's why I really bought it. :eek:

    Some people say I might be slightly mad...

    Yes, quite a lot of them. Lack of backbone that's what I call it. :D

    Oh how funny you are.

    Would your Pashley by any chance be the Pashley featured in the latest edition of Arrive? If so can I assume that you are the chap sitting in the Moody Baker waving through the window?

    You mean the waving grinning idiot sitting in the Moody Baker that has no idea that the next 17 miles over Yad Moss to Middleton in Teesdale would be possibly the worst hours of his life?

    Goodness me, no. Must be some other LEL rider on a Guv'nor... :D
