A lousy iPhone picture, but proof of road worthiness. Have to admit to being somewhat apprehensive - what if Reynolds 725 doesn't ride as nicely as my 30 yr old 531 Mercian? Shouldn't have been concerned. What an outstanding bike! Stiffer but still plenty of liveliness. A real looker too! I am very happy with my new bike - now christened M2 to differentiate from its grandfather now known as M1.
Thanks for everything, and I will be touch later this winter to schedule a long overdue respray for M1.
