another Retro: Holdsworth Pro

this link courtesy of a guy on the CR list: seems that Falcon, who now own the Holdsworth brand, are shopping around a retro modern lugged steel (with clunky CF fork) Holdsworth Team Professional.

Its... nice I guess, it just lacks the details and finishing of old holdsworths. Without the paint it would look like about a dozen other bikes.

I like it, except for the fork. Do you know what the retail price is?

It could be a Masi Speciale or a Surly Pacer with a carbon fork plus prettier decals and paint (I'm a sucker for orange...) Not bad overall, but I don't care for the fork either.

Don't be all saddo. I think it's brill. Paint the carbon fork and skip the black parts it will look and function totally fab...but not for cheap.
