Seems we have serious riders here with all the right stuff. Messieurs les Anglais, chapeau bas.

Never ever got sturmey archer gears to work on either of the bikes I had as a youth. Always stuck in third, no matter how much I tried (or so called experts tried) to adjust them. Always though they were a rubbish eye design compared to deraillieur.

This has been a great bike - ridden throughout the winter in all weathers. Funnily enough, it's also a great conversation piece. I've lost count of the number of drivers and cyclists who've admired it and said they had a Holdsworth in the past.
When I was a lad in Wandsworth two mates had Holdsworth racers. Not as sophisticated as this but it's good to know they are still around.

My favourite bike in nice weather.
Nice. (Also a city in France).

Good stuff. Makes me think of that TV series WA1 where the characters vie'd to own the most sophisticated Brompton..

You were lucky. We were so poor I could only have a single cog bike.

Here's my bike, which I've owned for about 45 years - at least it's historic!

Very period correct. Did you apply a Hache-Thé-Pépé?

Here's a nice thing... I just bought this 11 speed cassette from China. The six biggest sprockets are CNC'd from a single billlet of aluminium.
