Yup. Sure thing.
Got a chrome back pack, only half hipster.
Another one bites the dust... 😬
Quite excited! The internet and TV star @Bobbiego has my TCX frameset hanging up in his studio awaiting it's allotted time for some paint love.
I really liked the 'eggshell' TCX , but by the time I could get one, they brought out a new colour scheme. The new colours were by chance the Grupetto colours, so I had to get one! Despite the great colours, I never warmed to the design, so it is now with Bobby to make it great.
Want to keep it Grupetto and fun. More to follow.
And retrospectively, Banana Bob.
I have been commuting on my Kinesis GF Ti. It is a lovely frameset and made a good ride, but I had two issues:
1) It killed my upper back. Ok for the commute, but anything longer and it was too painful. It think it was a tad too long my inflexible mamil self. Even with the commute it caused issues.
2) I kept lusting after old steel frames, in a battered, jaunty, commuter style. Really missed my old Holdsworth that cracked.
So I looked about for steel frames. Found a 53cm 'vintage' Bob Jackson for £100. Bought it and swapped the parts off the GF.
So far loving it. It does lack clearance with guards, so am currency running 23c tyres again, but am hoping I can get 25c under there when spring arrives (which it seems to have done already!)
I’ve fitted some Swiss Stops to the Brompton. Exciting times.
