Genesis Equilibrium 853
Build new winter bike. fed up with alloy frames cracking, gone for a classic Reynolds 853 Genesis Equilibrium frame. Good guys at 18Bikes in Hope sorted me out with Frame, headset, bars and stem and when considering headset options, they inspired me to go 'retro silver'.. and I just happened to have an old Dura-Ace 7700 group set (from the mid 90's) sitting idle and bingo, the idea was formed.

old set of Mavic MA40 rims (classic box section wide rim) currently with 28mm tyres.

The world champ saddle is sac religious to some, but perfect compliment to the frame in my eyes.

SKS Chromoplastic Longboard mudguards are a revelation (at last a set that's long enough for group rides)

and after building it up, I recon it's time to mow that grass.
