    My twenty five year old Raleigh Pioneer, it was all original when i got it but the shifters were on their last legs and the brakes were not up to standard. So, new seven speed freewheel fitted (upgrade 18 to 21 speed), all new cables, new V-brakes and rapid fire shifters / brake combo, new saddle and mudguards, ergo handlebar grips and stubby bar ends.
    Not too shabby for a twenty five year old.

    I got so sick of matt black carbon fibre I just had to have this. Columbus tubing and Campag Chorus groupset. Apart from the lettering it is all painted. None of the Union Jacks are transfers. Even the stem is painted. Possibly not to everybody's taste but I love it!

    I like that! Must be quite stiff; those tubes look very chunky. I suppose we're more used to seeing skinny tubes on steel bikes.

    I haven't actually ridden it yet! No way I'm taking it out on gritted roads, might have to wait a few months. The tubing is, and I quote, "Columbus Spirit HSS Niobium Steel Tube Set". Which is a bit more of a mouthful, and probably a bit more advanced, than the "531c" of my youth.

    NIOBIUM

    It’s a special micro alloyed steel with Manganese, Chrome, Nickel, Molybdenum and Niobium. In the Columbus research and development tradition it can be considered the evolution from of the Thermacrom and Nivacrom alloy. It’s designed to provide better mechanical properties and greater resistance to atmospheric corrosion than conventional carbon steels. For every top-of-the-line and competition frames where lightness and high reliability are fundamental. Like Vanadium in Thermacrom steel, Niobium increases yield strength by precipitation hardening and acts for refinement of grain size.

    I came home with this 40-year-old Dutch girl tonight. A Gazelle champion mondial A-frame I believe, with the all important mudguard eyelets. I'm planning a fixed build
