Well what do you think?

It started off life as a tired 2009 Specialized Roubaix Elite. I've spent a few days dismantling and cleaning and finished it off with a nice new paint job.

I'm well chuffed with the result and can't wait for the maiden voyage!

Thanks for the comments guys, I'm no expert bike builder but there is something really satisfying about doing your own. I think it helps you to appreciate and understand the bike more.

Thanks! That sounds like a plan. You'll have to let me know when you have a ride planned mate.
Very Happy
