A bloke I know from school is a bit of a cycling nut, posted his collection on his Facebook recently. I don't know too much about cycling (I own a Charge Plug), but looked pretty impressive to me.

Purely on aesthetics with no consideration for performance or price, the Mavics.

This is a Visp TRXNL-2 and apparently they ride like a Cadillac


They are very reminiscent of the Leader 725

Different bike, this is from the west midlands. Guy I bought it off had it years, was a club cyclist but a knackered knee meant he was selling all his kit. If a genuine Saeco cannondale with ksyriums went for £175, then it was deal of the century.

Yeah thats the older gen CAAD2 frame, but still a great price. Mine has full dura ace group, cinelli grammo titanium stem, time forks etc and paid £310 which I was more than happy with.
