Well, they're certainly good looking bikes, always one of my favourite stands at Eurobike

Hello it is very pruddy. A Columbus Spirit tubed R8 with carbon FSK fork & Chorus group set. Tips the scales at a smidge over 17lbs with A23/Strada wheels. Very comfy for long days in the saddle, with plenty of get up & go when you want - shortish chainstays leaves not a lot of clearance for much more than a 25mm tyre & nothing wider then 23mm in the front.
Had it just coming up to 4 yrs now I think (when did you get your Pink Thing Jo?) & am considering re-spray, not because there's anything wrong with the paint - in fact I took the seat post out recently to let it drain, & it was bone dry inside - they use some funky treatment to stop internal corrosion. No, if I get it re-sprayed I can fall in love with it all over again.
