the purple one looks alot better.

that horse-chestnut produced some real damage to the frame. wasn't expecting this....seems that all this weight saving has his costs. will be extra carreful with my caad from now.

Sourcing components for a build at the moment - would you mind posting a link for the stem you bought?

Expecting a Bowman Palace R next month :D

You can find Kalloys on the 'Bay that will require a bit of elbow grease and nail polish remover to stealth, or you can buy a pre-stealthed one from Fairwheel Bikes.

Yeah eBay - very cheap and readily available. I noticed the paint on this one wasn't as robust as previous ones. Previously i've easily wiped the logos off with acetone. This time it took the paint off right down to the raw aluminium. I ended up stripping the entire thing and re-painting it with a light dusting of satin black.

I work in a bike shop and we've recently had a CAAD12 written off by a massive dent in the top tube. They're ridiculously thin

She's a heavy old girl, but she's making a great job of the UK winter.

This needed new discs. Whereas I'd usually fit plain or black components I couldn't help but fit these Hope floating discs in perfectly matched anodised purple.
