The Return of Eddy...

This is how the bike was returned to me...

[IMG][/IMG]

clincher wheels.... sigh,,,, Velocity rim & hub in the rear, decent Continental tyre. still a clincher GAG
Okay I am a purist and only tubulars will suffice. lol
The Hed 3 is still pretty light, but has a nasty dim in the brake surface... ( brake?, thank goodness he did not drill out the fork)

After a bath and good rub down I removed the Shimano crank and spd pedals replaced with C Record cranks
and Diadora PowerDrive:

Mavic 330 Gels 3x 36 rear and radial front with Toyo Kierin tyres
Tapes a temporary thing...

That horrid saddle was replaced with a 'On One' titanium railed beauty I have been hiding:

Put an Azgard locator beacon in that thing, so that you can beam it back the next time it goes for a solo ride by itself.

Time to do this

Congratulations! You got the frameset back, and that's the most important part.

Why not THIS.

Note: I couldn't find the original so this will have to do.
