2 New arrivals in the stable today

it was an early start for me today as i had 2 bikes to go and look at and if they were half decent come away with

first up was a Nigel Dean road bike that had sat unused according to the seller for 5 + years and looking at the dust and cobwebs i would say its about right . I could see it had full Shimano 105 groupset ie brake levers , down tube shifters , brake calipers and both hubs which look to be laced to a nice pr of Mavic open 4 rims and to top it off a Campag aero seat post with a Turbo suede covered saddle . It will need a bit of fettling but not to much

Next stop was 6 miles away to find a very original Carlton Corsair that had belonged to the seller late grandad .The only change from original spec is a pr of blue pannier bags and a set of flat bars instead of drops so easily rectified .

According to seller it was used a few times in the last 9 years but not many so again a quick re fresh on the grease front and some cables and of course a brooks b17 will see this one mobile and ready an ideal commuter if ever there was
