Hi guys & girls,
Just an update really, I've now covered over 4000 uneventful miles on it.
I've changed the bars to the compact type, they`re a lot easier on my neck, I`m 52 now , still pretty flexible but....
The frame has performed without a hitch. just replaced worn headset.
The Sram Rival groupset has been great.
The wheels have been straightened by Darren at Strada wheels, thanks mate, the bearings have been replaced through normal wear & tear.
The bars were replaced with Chinese copies of Most compact bars. Fitted & forgotten.
I've also got a pair of 25mm GP4000s on, only done 20 miles on them, but they feel ok!
I wouldn't hesitate building another one, mid you, all the "proper" manufacturers are having to play ball, so there are some cracking end of season deals to be had, hhhmmm
Thanks for reading,
