My steeds and their stable.....

Postby JimmyBloom » Thu Jan 17, 2013 20:10 pm

So, here are my rides (the road ones at least).
First up is the workhorse.
Roberts 531 steel wrapped with 8 speed chorus.
Runs like a dream and has taken through the winters months and the daily commute for some time now. Was tempted to sell to find another project once, but just couldn't bring myself to.

The comes the summer ride.
Argon18 krypton, with campagnolo centaur and fulcrum 3's.
Bought her early last year and love every moment we've spent together :)

Obviously needed somewhere sensible to store them, so in exchange for a cupboard for her shoes, I got a workshop!

Hope you like (apologies for the colourful backdrop).

Nice steeds mate and love the stable. All you need is a wee fridge in there and you are sorted.

Cheers guys. A fridge is a great idea, though this time of year it's like a walk in freezer anyway.....

I love everything about the Argon 18 apart from their ridiculous spacer/headtube extension system.

You've got to wonder why they don't just make a version with a slightly longer HT rather than an ugly 'headube extension'?

Still looks great though!

I know what you mean, the head tube is a bit marmite. Does give a lot of adjustability though, plus unless someone mentions it, I don't notice it. Having said that, I am going to lose some of the stack to see how it feels (if the weather lets me)!

Very nice bikey batcave mate, not too sure about the down lighters though, a double fluorescent would be better!

Jealous of the bike room, as well as the bikes!
