Cervelo R2 from a few years back. Not done a lot to it other than bottle cages and saddle since I got it, as I don't ride it enough to merit the upgrades, but had wanted a Cervelo since I saw them as a teenager in the shop window of East Street Cycles in Farnham and figured as long as the frame is good I can add as I go. Smiling

Definitely lucked out on the paint job they did for them that year.

Propel Adv Pro 0. Should get steerer tube cut but switch between cba and thinking it's worth keeping uncut if I decide to sell and get the same but with discs.

Nice one, ta, good to hear that as opposed to it being more novelty value than real life useful. I mostly ride alone so always useful to have an extra pair of eyes, and am a sucker for Garmin gadgets and their integration. Think I'll cop.

Yep, I've got a 530 and 945 so can use it with either / both.

Just read one Varia can connect to multiple devices via Ant+, useful for group rides as well Cool

This bike has been doing it for me bigtime. Want to get some 29" x 3" tyres on it for some winter action.

Anyone recommend a trouser clip? Was going to get a brooks one but read they are small and fall off in reviews?
