This is the Mongrel. You can see what it was, and is, I think. It was really fun with these original orange Manitou forks, but the front was just too low with drops, so I had to rigidize it...

Love a bit of bling and it also brings the weight down, all in weight is about 16lbs - not bad for an aluminium framed tt bike Smile

My new winter hack bike, finished just in time for May day Bank Holiday... Thinking

Its a Steel Lemond that got the pound shop respray treatment and my old Brooks Colt along with some Brooks bar tape. That along with some bits and bobs from the spares box and the wheels n groupset of a £100 ebay bike and I'm really pleased with the result.

Seeing that Brooks saddle made me think of mine - a Swallow that I got for Christmas from my wife. On my lovely 653 Dave Lloyd with 1990 7400 Dura-Ace. Need a new pair of wheels, though.

Nice bike Nick -the only grip I have with mine is that despite having mudguard eyes there's precious little room to squeeze the mudguards under the brake bridge. The result is that I have an annoying ligth tyre rub at the moment when I get out of the saddle.

Cheers for the tip Dave - I wish I'd seen them before I purchased the ones I have (http://road.cc/content/review/2716-tortec-reflector-mudguards). The tortec's are great quality though.

The tyres I have on are 25's on at the moment so I'm going to switch the rear (as thats where the problem is) to 23's and hope that solves the problem. Otherwise I may have to take the hit and buy the Giant 'guards.

Yeah I'd read those reviews - I bought a Ribble winter trainer/audax frame and fork for my commute a couple of months ago and had no problems whatsoever so I was happy to use them again. I forgot to order the headset for the Gran Fondo and emailed them to find out which one I needed (its 1 1/8 x 1 1/2 headtube) and they replied within 20 minutes with a link to the headset. no complaints from this end Smile , their prices are pretty competeitive to.
