I based this custom self build on the GT. (It was a fortune in comparison)

The winter bike in a recent trip to wales. Excuse the blurry shots, I was using the phone and it was that windy I couldn't keep the phone still!

yep, looks cool, what bike is it?
And I bet those disc brakes were handy if you came down the steep side afterwards :wink:

Yes, very nice indeed. Looks like a Singular Peregrine to me. The sort of bike that Dawes ,Raliegh etc should be knocking out. At a lesser spec' and price ofcourse but you get the idea.

Thanks for the comments.

It is a peregrine running 26's not the usual 29's, the brakes are the avid bb7s and are excellent at scrubbing speed even when fully loaded. I love this bike even though it isn't the lightest or fastest bike I own, it's just so comfy and dependable, it does everything I ask of it and never skips a beat. I'm tempted to get the Osprey but I think Sam is going to it the exact same colours as this, the Kite also looks nice........

This is the bike that got me back into cycling (Giant Terrago) it ended up with slick tyres on it as i preffered pottering around the Devon lanes on it rather than doing the offroad stuff

Image

Then i decided i wanted something more road orientated so the Terrago was put back to its original MTB state and passed down to Jake and i bought myself a lovely (flat bar) Cannondale Synapse

Image

Image

Then i started reading touring books and decided that i'd like to do some touring and when a Ridgeback Panorama came up for grabs from one of my customers (for £100) i just had to have it

To be confirmed... It's my first drop bar bike for about 15 years so at the moment I am in pain - but only because my lower back is more or less seized. Ride is so far very good although I'm detecting a hint of fork chatter under braking.

I'll report back further once I've got the handle bar height and reach properly sorted.

Sparta update!

Postby Velorum » 24 Mar 2010, 8:34pm

Having nearly finished modifying the mighty Sparta to my taste I thought that I would post an update for those interested in things more traditional.

As mentioned in another tread I have ditched the dyanmo system and gone all LED/battery. The new front lamp is a Bobbin's retro special - I think that it looks great and I am particularly pleased by the bright beam. It operates on constant or flashing. Link to Bobbin: http://www.bobbinbicycles.co.uk/Retro-Front-Light

A good match for the mudguard mounted rear LED via forum member 'workhard' viewtopic.php?f=32&t=34971

Image

Ive had my eye on one of those Busch & Muller stubby rear view mirrors for a while - I took the plunge and ordered one from DOT bikes: http://www.dotbike.com/ProductsP3041.as ... aign%3dDPL Im really pleased with this - very good quality and a good rear view whilst being very small and unobtrusive

Image

The original prop stand was fine when the bike was unloaded - but with the panniers full it just wasnt up to the job. This Hebie bipod propstand was expensive but well worth it. Great quality and pretty light. Think a sturdy prop stand is an unecessary addition? Try one if you regularly load up your rear panniers and you will think again! Link to SJS: http://www.sjscycles.co.uk/category-Propstands-323.htm

And thats pretty much as I want it. The only thing that I now hanker after is one of those new Sturmey Archer 2 speed auto coaster hubs - hopefuly later in the year!

Cheers
Ian

I'm doing a short (4 day) tour in a couple of weeks and as the main point of it is to unwind and relax, I'm seriously thinking of riding my Dutch-style roadster. It's quite heavy and certainly not quick, but is very comfy and when I'm riding it, I just sort of switch off and enjoy the world passing slowly by.And it's easy to hop on and off if something takes your fancy.

"Quality miles",that's what I'm after! :)
