The transition from old to new 23-05-2011


Same bike after a little work 23-05-2011

After a bit of work , the bike comes up almost as new.....

Replacement of the brooks saddle with a more modern and more comfortable design, putting new gearing and brake cabling onto the frame, replacing the tyres with Schwalbe 700 x 23’s and a good bit of good old fashioned spit and polish and the bike comes up almost as new. Oh, yes new chain too – carefully chosen to match the teeth of the 5 speed gear set, as the previous chain was impossibly tight.

I’m one happy camper.
