You got a problem with gears Johnny boy? all splendid apart from maybe the overly red Mercian. You mentioned Kilmarnock, are you from Ayrshire? Do you know Mr. Obree?

Your 'mail' arrived today mate, stuff is on it's way to you, Cheers for that, John.

Then you have smashing taste, I was just thinking how sweet that looked.
I've got a matt black condor which might see the light of day soon.

i've got no problem with gears at all, it's just my bike porn stash seems to be lacking them!

i'll see what i can dig up from the vaults.

i used to see graeme obree around - i grew up in kilmarnock and vaguely remember his bicycle shop. (the one he tried the insurance scam on!)

here are some of my bikes:

geared:

winter hack:

track only:


i also have a bob jackson vigorelli (with campy record pista, nitto, brooks etc) on it's way as i type.

the tape is an old-fashioned method to stop the tubular tyres rolling off the rims. i've never seen it on a modern build/bike.

the cranks are supposed to alleviate the lack of power at TDC but whether they work or not....
