The slight rises around here disagree with my knees when combined with this chainring. Plus the cranks spider is bent.

+1

Only ring to ride in is the big dog!

Was disappointed when I had to go down from a 52 to a 49 chainring :( same ratio, 17/16t sprockets, but it looks less imposing :(

I know i've posted it before but i finally got around to putting the head badge on and taking a pic with the right saddle, and that's excuse enough for me :) .

1986 Dawes Shadow. I recently found out it's actually Reynolds 500, not 531, but i had the stickers lying around so thought what the hell. Absolutely love this bike, really smooth, handles well and goes like stink.

And yea i know i need to trim that brake cable outer but the ziptie will do for now :) .

Oh nice, i had a Protour a few years ago, it was a nice ride. Is that Sherwood metallic? I sprayed my Tom Wallace in that, looks really good in the sun.

Treated the commuter to a clean and covered up some of the paint chips it received when thrown into the bushes when I was hit by a car earlier this year. Also added new stem and bars I scored ridiculously cheap on fleabay.

Lots of elbow grease, degreaser & a fortunate photo that doesn't show up all the dings!
