My main rear wheel is a Velocity DeepV laced to an All-City track hub , with a Continental GatorHardshell 23 as tire. I have an old HED disc that I covered one side of in stickers that I like to ride around on some time ( with a cheap old Kenda domestique training tubular on it ) but it has no lockring so it's really sketchy for serious rides.
bought this bike in mint condition off a gentleman who acquired it new in the late eighties ( 88-89 ). He told me he rode it for one year trainig indoors and then it sat in his indoor storage ever since. I originally thought that the Gerald ODonovan sticker on the frame meant it was built by him - but after reading up on these frames a lot I discovered that the GODV sticker does not guarantee that he actually built the bike but that he definitely designed it .. more often that not it was the other SBDU/LD guys whom actually built the frames. This frame is from the Nottignham Lightweight Division which existed for a short while after the Ilkeston SBDU closed - or so I do believe. some of the components listed aren't in the pics, yet. ;)
