    I've watched Stanforth for a while and even their ex-dems scrape rather above the OP's budget, I think.

    Cycle Republic have Cinelli bootleg for £900, down from £1400. It is rather beige tho!

    currently only in tiny sizes and at £1400. Also when I am elected Prime Minister it will be a criminal offence to sell touring bikes with cantilevers (and press fit BB!)

    Look like great bikes. I have emailed to see if he can do what I want. Since he states that the only saddle option is Brooks and sizing is in inches I suspect my request for one with TRP HYRD brakes may be a little too modern though!

    The frames are largely built by Lee Cooper, so I don't think that will be an issue at all, as long as sir's pocket is jangling.

    As somebody who is short in the arse with a longer back I have bikes with no standover height. It's possible to adapt.

    He replied and can do what I want, including disk brakes. But will not be ready in time for my trip, which has saved me a mint! One day maybe

    Only 5' 11 1/2" (I used to be 6' when I was younger) but I wear 34" inside leg trousers so a bit of a Phil Lynott/Spidermonkey physique. :becool:

    That makes absolutely no sense at all to me.
    Nothing to do with the bike.
    Tyres and tubes are consumables - the same with any brand of bike.

    That's a good colour for a tourer. It's a very nice bike if you like drops (i don't) and top marks to cinelli for producing such an unitalian thing.
