    Another nice looking bike from the Ribble stable, but pleeeeaasssseee turn your computer sensor round on the fork, and personally i would ditch that pump holder, it's why your jersey has 3 pockets, nice bike as i say.and i like the look of those bars.

    The pump will be hidden behind the additional bottle cage when I get it so won't be as obvious, I'd rather carry it on the bike than in my pocket.

    I'll have to post a pic of my Gran Fondo with its newly located pump mount on the downtube :lol:

    Done it that was so I have more pocket space for food on the Fred Whitton. I tend to underfeed so reckon better to carry more food and put the pump on the frame!

    Not a permanent setup though.......

    Nice bike Keasden - presume that was built using the Bike Builder? Mine was from the special edition section so it came with Khamsins though I am currently running it with a pair of Vento Reactions (can't really tell them apart on the bike though!). It does have 2010 Centaur which is a bonus. Only downside to the bike is the paint seems easily chipped. Do at least put some sort of chainstay protector on. Also I'd recommend getting a Token chain watcher (much cheaper than the alternatives).

    PS you need to wash that bird censored off the bars :lol:
    Faster than a tent.......
