Thanks! I was around Putten a couple of weeks ago, on a trip with my gf to Hoenderloo. Took a couple of pics of the ride and I'll post them here if you like.

On the bike: Surprising how good the ride is. Almost like steel, it's not superstiff, but not as flexible as a chinese gymnast in training for the olympics. Feels a little lighter, but since I won't be climbing any mountains around here that's not going to be of any help.

The condition of the components is amazingly new, almost nos. The guy selling it (wearing a real redneck type mullet btw) told me it was his boss' bike who rode it twice and when he got it for a song he himself rode it five times. These were not marathon rides I suppose. The inner chainring had never touched a chain untill I took it easy today. The tubular Campy Omega rims have 22 year old Specialized 20mm tires mounted, of which I was a little scared they wouldn't hold even though they look absolutely brandnew. They don't look very highend though.

Nice detail is the lbs-sticker IMO
