&$#*^%£## !!!!!!
Ok then, who just snaffled the apollo V in St Lucia Brissy that was posted on gumtree 3 hrs ago :cry: I missed it by 15 mins, just spoke to the elderly chap, who didnt realise what he had. It was in perfect condition, $160 :shock: I called him and he said to call back in 1/2hr as he was driving, then I got stuck talking to my mother on the phone for ages :roll: by the time I called him back it was gonski....argggghh.
When in doubt......mumble.

Over priced for a Campagnolo Triomphe equipped bike.

A nice frame that unfortunately has none of the original parts other then the syncro shifters.

Oh thank heavens it's too big for me. And at the other end of the country. And way out of my price range :lol: .

You mean "downgraded" :P . 630 is the one true wheel size! Although i would love to see 642 reintroduced :) .

These kids need to hone their instincts a bit more. I spotted those crappy steel cranks a mile off. ;) Took a 2nd look to see the stamped dropouts. Poo! Yuck!

But, Dawes and 27". It ticks every box there is!! :)

On a more serious note, my Dawes Shadow has stamped dropouts and is made of "Dawes Supertube" but it is an exceptional ride. Better than the Columbus SL Pinarello i had briefly!
