Mr Ridley [Re-Born] SR


















A rather belated Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from around here. Plenty to catch up on over the holidays, but first a quick post on my Christmas present to myself- a brand new Super Record groupset with which to re-build my Ridley by. I may well do an in-depth review on the groupo in time, but meantime to say that now I've got it set up correctly, Campagnolo's latest (well, ignoring electronic nonsense) and greatest does not disappoint. The outlay, especially tooling costs, has not come cheap, and god help me if I bin the rear mech. But meantime, you only get one life (and one sales tax haven?) so you may as well use it. 6.8kg of bicycle does feel pretty good.
