First Ridley for me. Picked this frame n' forks up new for a bargain, and threw all existing kit on it. Impressed so far with the F&F.

Paint "scheme", is a bit Marmite lol, but I'd rather have something on the slightly understated side-of-things rather than overly shouty.

  • like it.

    that cassette ratio looks on the 'racey side'! :shock:

    that looks tidy!

    Also your garage door looks well maintained and is clean as is the concret floor that appears to be clean and crack free.

    As a small point i would say the stickers on the door are peeling slightly in the corner and detract from an otherwise admirable effort. 9/10 commended
  • :lol: I fully accept the mark-down for the tatty garage stickers. I did think about peeling them off but thought better of it.
  • The tatty n tired Tacx Tao cages will be replaced by these in next day or two also

    Very nice. Stiff, light and comfortable.

    It'd be even lighter without the Infocranks :?
