I know there were some people who missed out on the Vätternrundan sportive in Sweden in June 'cos it sold out. Just a reminder that you can buy and transfer places up until 15th May and still ride it, (300km).
I have my place, but know of others available for transfer, so PM me if you are having trouble.
Anyone riding it that wants to meet up, is also welcome to say hi!
This is a very light, very strong & very stiff road frame by Quest of Harrow. It comes complete with a carbon fork (uncut!) & Campagnolo Chorus headset. The tubing is light, strong & stiff SC7 butted Scandium, still the preferred choice of many top riders.
Size is 'Small' but see the diagram for more size details. The frame is in very good condition, with just one minor blemish on the top tube which you won't see when riding the bike. The frame has never been ridden – an unfinished project that I didn't complete.
A bargain at £200

I'm drowning in confusion, I have a list of bikes about as long as my legs & I don't know anymore.
I have a budget of £1,500 - £2k & I'm looking to upgrade my steed to something more worthy.
I Originally had a small list of Carbon bikes maybe a ribble R872, or a BMC roadracer, or a Specialized Roubaix, or a boardman road team, or a cinelli saetta, or a dolan (as I'm NW based) but then I heard about Ti & the Van Nich has been drawing me in.
Titanium sounds amazing but now I'm not sure if Ti is right...
The Somerset Hills GF is on this Sunday and I've been
out checking the climbs on the route. There are some
tough ones on the Gran and Medio Fondos!
