    Monday to Friday I do hybrid and quite often Saturday and Sunday too.

    If you look at the hoods, there's no cables showing which is a good giveaway it's got Italian bits on it. I think Shimano are changing theirs to match.




    I think the last time I had this bike out was October last year.

    I would have chosen something a little more understated (too many stickers for my taste),
    but as it was £600 very nearly new secondhand, I'm not going to complain :sad:.

    how does that work then? where do they go - surely there's a really sharp 90 degree bend in it, for the shifter cable to go down the handlebar?

    No it works - all sorted inside... been like that as long as shimano have had STI - both Campag and Shimano are great !

    One reason I've not gone STI - the campag is neater.... the sooner shimano do concealed cables the better....

    Not ridden it since October....oh no !

    I ride my MTB 5 days a week and any chance I'll get the Herety out rather than the Ribble at weekends - nothing like riding the best bike !

    PS being fussy - the QR on the front wheel is on the drive side - it should be on the non-drive (left - if sat on bike). OCD cyclist here !!!! :blush:

    When I got my bike the front QR was on the right (not left) side and the first thing I did was turn it round before I put the bike in the car to take it home!
