This bike originated from my desire for a classic styled touring bike, and a 'naked' steel finish. This '84 Apollo had already clocked up many thousands of miles as a touring bike with its original owner, well used but in good condition, I set about rebuilding it as an every-day randonneur style bike for myself.

In terms of an interest its retro/classic steel bikes, but that's about building, restoring, collecting and a little casual riding. For 'actual riding', 90% of my miles are on the local trails and off road its modern all the way. This is my current ride, and its a ripper - a Merida 120 3000D Carbon.
