    LOL. There was that bloke in Bendigo getting tapes of the classics from somewhere in Belgium, or Peter 'smelly' Delongville getting old Mrs Desnerck to tape the races for him. :D

    That's right....forgot about him.

    Gooldy lent me the 88 worlds on a strict, short-term contract once.

    Was viewing gold.

    I'm trying to dream up a good reason to buy myself some Super-Record. I can get my grubby hands on it in the first week of September.

    Anyone wanna buy a frame or ten? ;)

    Nah, we'll be in the next one. I'm finishing the frame now, with the build coming next week before it's off to Sydney.

    Kinda ridiculous how long crap like this takes.

    (Shuddup Ma :p)

    First sensible build they've seen in a while I reckon.......SRAM Force, Thomson stem and post, Flite saddle, Easton Aluminium bars, DTSwiss/White Industries handbuilt wheels.......

    Only bit of carbon on it will be the forks, and even then they're getting a set of steel forks so they can 'contrast and compare'.

    Hopefully they won't bag the shit out of it.

    Do you give them a price guide & stuff for the lot, or just the frame?. They won't bag it, I've never read any reviews where they've *REALLY* givenn it to something...although the specialized Roubaix? (mighta been the Tarmac) last year got a bit of a pasting

    I forgot to tell you he was back on the bike. He's on facebook if you want to try and get in touch with him.

    BTW, facebook is ace for stalking people. I've been on for a couple of weeks, My mate has all these hot chicks on his friend list, including hot chicks from skool who would now be hot milfs. Unfortunately only the fat ugly chicks from High School are putting me on as a friend. classic is hugely disappointed:(

    did you see it?

    he was obviously working against Evans, if not necessarily for Sastre, definitely, indirectly in aid of, with changing the pace with some small attacks, and then not pulling on the front when Frank told him not to.

    I send them the whole bike. As they don't review many customs, I want them to spend as little time critiquing the parts as possible because it's not really relevant when you can spec whatever you like.

    The whole thing just sets me on edge to be honest.

    The last magazine 'review' I was involved in (albeit well over 10 years ago) the reviewers had no idea what they were talking about and spent 90% of the article critiquing the parts.

    Crumbs, when did Iron Maiden turn into these old wrinkly blokes? :confused: :eek:

    Gotta love these old Pommie rockers - look like they could rip your head off but come across as being quite nice and rather amusing in interview.
