Well, I've transferred the outstanding balance to Mike & that ought to happen on the 2nd of April, so I should be able to pick it up anytime after that.

Yes, I'll admit to being just a 'little' excited! It's more than that, though, as I have known Mike for more than 12 years, so it's like seeing a good friend too. Mike's son, Marc, has a coffee shop in Chichester so I'll be visiting that on the way there. It's all racing, really, as Marc use to live & race in Belgium and I've not seen him for a very long time - I'm looking forward to coffee as much as the frame!

I'm sure I ought to have weighed the frame, fork & seat post before I started assembley. I'll likely do that over the weekend. This is WW, after all!
Would you all like to see a step-by-step build with better than iPhone pics as I go?

That is superb, Colnago are the only firm that do beautiful paint jobs, all others look industrial or designed by a gcse student. To me that harks back to the rabo bank design of 1999, is there storage for the blood bags?

Apologies to all, I'm still playing. I did a 12 hour shift today & didn't have time to do much else!
