Weirdly or not, I seem to be the only one here who thinks it's absolutely beautiful. My only quibble is the style really doesn't suit straight forks, it needs those classic curves.

They have also taken an additional driving test to prove their proficiency, it is no guarantee of being a good driver, but they do not want to kill anyone.
Given how some of the tipper truck drivers actually handle their heavy, hard to control vehicle in traffic... they at the very least do not give a damn about who they hit! Not all, but some, and that's enough to put in much stricter rules.
- London cyclists: See what an HGV driver sees with a Changing Places session1 year 32 weeks agoIt's all good and well to try
It's all good and well to try and stay away. And frankly, if you're filtering on the inside of any vehicle without a good idea on traffic light phasing, you're f-ing reckless.
However, it's time that HGVs have proper safety equipment fitted.
If the driver can't see the near front - fit a camera and display!
Same with the side of the HGVs, some new designs have removed the mirrors in favour of a set of cameras, completely removing blind spots.
In fact, a full set of mirrors should already eliminate the blind spot. However, the driver needs to use those mirrors instead of the phone, iPad, eating...

... Diego Ulissi is Italian cycling’s man of the moment... Still only 24 years of age, the former junior world champion has put together his best season to date as a professional, claiming six victories in total...
There was a certain degree of inevitability about Ulissi’s victory on the hilltop finish atop Bologna’s Colle di San Luca on Saturday, coming as it did after similar wins on Superga at Milano-Torino and in Peccioli at the Coppa Sabatini.
... Ulissi... had help from Michele Scarponi, Damiano Cunego and Kristijan Durasek in the finale of the Giro dell’Emilia.
“... Durasek’s attack from distance was fundamental because it meant I could stay on the wheels...”
Ulissi’s final outing of 2014 comes at Sunday’s GP Beghelli in Monteveglio...
What a show by Ulissi at the end of the season. I'll follow the GP Beghelli and post the results later. So many races that could be part of the end of the season!

Thanks, Phil. I'll give
Thanks, Phil. I'll give them a call and see what they've got.
I've had a rummage around and found an old axle and a couple of bearings that look like they're up to the job. That should get me on the road. But, I've mostly found that my attempts in that department don't exactly replicate factory-built!
If I can get this finished at some time before the next ice age, I'll pop some photos up somewhere and you can reminisce - or grimace!
I've nearly gathered all my bits. Just need to sort this BB, get a crankset (square taper single 46-50t should do it), sort out how to make the brakes fit / work and find a way of operating them (levers are the usual approach, I believe!). Then, all I have to do is nail it all together and rip up the roads.....
- Winter Jersey1 year 32 weeks agoI bought a Gabba a few weeks
I bought a Gabba a few weeks ago. Took me three months to part with the cash as its a silly amount for a jersey. Went out the other day. A nice flat 64 miles and a steep hill (Mow Cop). I set out at 7 in the morning and it was freezing. It poured it down halfway and the wind was horrendous for the last 22 miles. And its worth every penny!
