Looking at the profile the two lumps at the end might not seem to big for a pro cyclist but taking into account they have just raced over 250k it MIGHT be to much for a lot of the pure sprinters.
Might take the risk off loading up on the likes of Thor and Boonen and foregoing Cav etc.

This is a really good idea. It might start to bring more people into their local bike store and start to foster a cycling community round that particular shop. If a number of different shops in the area did different ones cyclists could clock up different routes.

Interesting. I won a Wattbike in a race at work (yes, a Wattbike race - a virtual kilo in 1:04) I had mixed feelings about cycling in the garage, so when it seemed to be taking ages to deliver my prize, I swapped it for a rather nice Boardman bike which goes fast and gets me out on the road. Never looked back, but it's nice to see they're still around and have their uses.
- Internal Cable routing sleeves1 year 29 weeks agoHi Zoro
Thanks for the reply.
Thanks for the reply. I managed to get normal (campagnolo) cable housing though the internal routing for the rear brake cable though it is a very tight fit. It took me a while to realise that to 'fish' it out of the frame you first need to unscrew the bolt at the cable exit point - this removes the stopper and makes the hole much bigger so you can get at the cable.
As for the gear cable sleeves I ended up cutting them back into the frame and just butting up the campagnolo cable outers to them - seems to shift fine like this on the stand and I'll be taking it out at the weekend.
Hope this makes - if it doesn't let me know and I'll snap some pics.

Thanks for the offer Unclebob - I need something larger unfortunately.
- Pompino Alternative1 year 29 weeks agoThanks for the suggestions
Thanks for the suggestions guys.
I have looked at the Roadrat - could be a good option, but I'd rather have drops than a flat bar, and unless I run an extremely short stem, it wouldn't really work. They used to do a "short" version which would work better with drops, but alas now discontinuted. I do like the look of the Alfine complete - even if it is with a flat bar.
I had thought about "manipulating" a 120mm frame - but discounted the idea as a bodge, but you;re right - should be worth speaking to On One about it.
Cross Check could be ideal - I'd only looked at the Steamroller, but dismissed it for lack of braze-ons.
Cat1commuter - I thought they were indestructable too! I am gutted as it is probably my favourite bike of all time and has stood up to some very rough treatment over the years. I'm going to look at the cost of repairs, but suspect that it will be cheaper to replace.
That Bob Jackson is lovely - you have planted the seed of a very dangerous idea there!

The Surly Cross Check is great, or you could get a Bob Jackson World Tour built up for about £150 more, to your exact requirements, details of mine here:
I went with a 631 frame, 135mm rear spacing and all the braze-ons, 1" threaded forks but - they will build it with 1 1/8 threadless if you want.
