About Us


Campagnolo Record Strada Cranks

Keeping classic bikes on the road and reguarly ridden is my passion. Modern plastic framed bikes are all well and good for the Tour but they don’t have the variety and character of pre 1990s bikes.

With some careful buying its possible to build a top quality bike from the 70s and 80s for less than it would cost to be a top end set of wheels.

Its the aim of this site to give you the information you need to avoid buying a lemon. Even though bikes look essentially the same as they always have done, there have been numerous subtle changes over the years.
