edited August 2014 in Commuting chat
Managed to find a replacement from a kind chap in the North who had some amusing racing stories from when he were a lad. This is a 58, so a size up from the one which was pinched but a smaller stem and seat a bit lower means no issues.

Only done 2 commutes so far but very pleased, and at half the price of the original! Just on the lookout for a new stem to fit a 1 inch steerer to get it slammed


Note the added security in the background!
Off to Surrey Sat/Sun to put it through its paces

    Have a look at the nos stems at planet x, they will probably have what you need.

    I went for a Condor alloy 1" stem for my retro steel bike. Just an option.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Lovely bike. Don't bother with Surrey, get on a flight and take it up the Stelvio as befits the heritage.

    Nice...although your added security would be improved if it was locked to something. :wink:

    That steel cable will take about 30 seconds with a hacksaw, you need to D-lock the frame or you are wasting your time.

    The frame is d locked. The cable is for the front wheel. It's in a gated area so should be ok like that and we have CCTV now.

    Unlocked in the pic as I just got home!
