    Took the Pioneer rat bike out for a little test ride with my son. Doesn't look much, but it rides nicely, smooth & quiet.
     
  5. And that's all that matters really.

    I've got my Criterium back on the road :smile:

    It's been out of action since October 2015 when I managed to detach the rear dropout from the chainstay on an audax, but after having the frame welded back together it's back in service and feels as nice as ever. I have replacement decals for it but they are waiting until I've decided about getting it powder coated.

    Andrew's JO'G to Ft William Pics Sept 2011 009.jpg A rare shot of the "speed" machine. This was day one of JOG to Drumnadrochit via Bettyhill and Lairg 2011. A great start.
    We walked the canal to Fort William from there.

    Unfortunately that only lasted a short time before the welded drop out failed again. So now I have a new(er) Raleigh Criterium 12 frame for it: -

    Strange isn't it? I don't think there's going to be any of us on here discussing what 3k carbon road bikes to buy on another thread. I wonder why?

    In fact I was reading that thread and someone posted a video of carbon frame being sliced in half. Seems they're not so sh*t hot after all. Steel is real!

    #mcshrooms failure not withstanding.

    My, believe it or not, first ever new bike at the age of around 42 I think.

    Raleigh Chimera, Sora 8 speed, the bike was blinding, I did thousands of trouble free miles on it, rock solid wheels, a bit unforgiving on rough surfaces but it was one of my favourites simply because it saw me through my first forays into serious cycling and many miles of commuting.

    I miss that one.
