A number of years ago I had a bike built by an English framebuilder of long experience. This framebuilder, Derek Bailey had emigrated to Canada after getting his experience in places such as Holdsworth and Geoffrey Butler.
In Canada he built custom frames and also got together with some friends of his and founded a little company based in Vancouver, the company was called Rocky Mountain Bicycles.
The bike he built me was y best friend for many years and was my only bike for many years.
We traveled and rode and explored for many years. The bike fit like a glove and rode like a dream.
I decided this year that it was time for “Pink”, the name my daughters have given this bike, to get a new Prom Dress, so I stripped it down and sent it off for painting. While it was there, I thought, I may as well have a couple of other things added.
This bike was outfitted with C-Record from the day I got it, so I stripped all the parts down and cleaned, polished, re-lubed, re-packed, etc.
These are some pictures of the bike, before it got sent away.
