Measured by Chas & Co. in November and took delivery in December. Getting the bits took time. Miche Pista crank w/170 arms and 44/18 combo. Wheels built by Helmut Burns of Sonic Cycles made of Goldtec sealed bearing hubs (fixed/free rear) and Ambrosio Excllence rims. Selcof seat post and ITM stem/bars. DA brake levers and Ultegra calipers. Frame's made of custom drawn Columbus Nivachrome, fillet brazed and has braze ons for two bottles (one for my light's battery), rear brake cable and mudguards. Drilled fork and rear brake bridge plus extended head tube and stainless steel head badge. Mudguards going on soon.

Nice, solid ride and very stable, especially in the gusty winter winds.

Glad to see Chas Roberts is going strong after all these years. A lot of people on this board never heard of them but I have seen a couple of fine examples of their work. Enjoy it.
Cool set up, and nice paint too. (NM)High Gear
