    Well, the Pinarello is now blinged to the max. I really can’t get it any better now so we can safely say that the two-year project is finally finished. Thank God.

    Here it is. Best news is that is rides even better than it looks which is going some

    Hugo, I think that is probably an understatement!

    I love it.

    Absolute beauty, Harry. 😀

    Just a shame someone with my handsome features isn’t riding it. 😉

    Gunner, you suffer the same affliction as me . . . rugged good looks that means you spend half your life beating off women with a shitty stick.

    It’s been said I have the perfect face for radio 😆 😆 😆 😆

    Oi !! you’ve nicked my wheels!! 😆 😆 😆

    Very nice Harry, I hope we’ll see a lot more of it when the good weather finally reaches us.

    Be interesting to do a swap for a while and see if we notice any difference betwen the two bikes ( enter Marty stage left! 😆 😆 )

    That should stop you pestering me to death about my wheels – unless you’re after a pair for the Ridley as well 😯

    The Ridley is getting the very very nice and grossly underrated Reynolds Assaults. I’ve also bought some very special wheels for when I go to the Alps. Then of course there’s the new bike I’ll be building soon. That will be VERY special and VERY different.

    It’s a form of madness that I have no control over

    The Prince. It’s the only one I have with a compact chainset on. I don’t think I’ll have the Bora wheels on though. Something more suitable I think

    Remember the conversation we had riding through Yarm one night about all those brand new unworn cardigans that will be left in your drawer when you die ❓ ❓

    I know exactly what you mean and agree entirely. However, there’s a few bits of very rough road on the Cyclone and some tough climbs so I don’t think deep section wheels are the tools for the job.

    I have the tools for the job but I haven’t even tried them on the bike yet. I’ll put them on tomorrow and we’ll see what they’re like on a hill. Just one mind you

    Send one down here for my long-term testing programme for other person’s bikes.

    Takes about a year and gets returned with a nice two-page report on how it performed! 8)
