More News From Nowhere

Old’s cool

The 'before' shot

Inspired by my father’s cool restoration projects, and more than a little burnt out on corporate logo’ed carbon bikes, I’ve acquired a project bike of my own.  It’s a Columbus-tubed, NZ made Bosomworth frame, and it only set me back $220!  Of course, I need to keep some of the modern day bling in my life, and there is a nice new Campagnolo Chorus 11 speed groupset waitng to grace it.

Read a bit more on it at Velominati, and stay tuned for the ‘after’ shots.

    Dude, do I even need to dignify that with an answer? Ok, I will…

    That was the shot taken before I even bought the bike.

    @Col: Rubber band mate, no string’s attached on my bikes!
