Didn't come with Campag.  Apparently I can't wear my Kask Bambino either!

Yes, but without the electrics being done by LUCAS "The Lord of Darkness."  All owners of old trumpies would know about that wonderful experience(s). Hahaha.

And IAP's wasn't water cooled (or fuel injected) but of all modern retros, this one nails it well and goes right up against the insanely good looking Kawasaki Z900 RS

I've just realised:

 

My name is Tony, and I have a Giant.

 

Someone had the foresight to throw their Giant Kronos on the scrap metal heap at the dump, and I salvaged it and made this out of it. I hate to say it, but it was fun getting around on it.

My name is Brian and I ride a giant. Furthermore, it is my only bike, and I love the ugly thing.

How can you only have 1 bike?

 

I can hardly ride any more, and I still have 5.

I need to fess up ... I had an alloy TCR about 20 years ago, whilst saving up for a better ride. It was okay, but I recall a mate (who went on to ride Pro for Giant) say "what are you doing riding that? I would never ride a Giant!!!"

Things have moved on since!

An alloy TCR got me through my first three Ironmans.  Then I got a proper bike and went 35 minutes faster

It's now my kickr bike

Well I picked it up today, brought it home, shoved in the cold dark garage and threw a blanket over it. My real bikes will never know, they are cosseted in the living room.

Let us never speak of it again. For shame :blush:

Should have saved your money and set an alarm clock for 4am then you would have qualified for Kona.

I have read the rules. 

While rule 12 is n+1, s-1 also applies.

Actually re-read the rules
