My previous bike was a c. Running gear was any bits I came across over the years, finished as 10 speed but spent many years as a high geared fixed wheel. I had to get rid of it when the ex-wife got rid of me. I recently bought another, just to potter around locally when the sun is shining. I don’t do cold, wet or windy these days. It’s windy today so I am writing this You can pay more if you want them to tidy it up for you. I spent a while looking through what they had they used to have a lot but I believe fewer now and restricted opening times sadly.

Good play bike package. Drop-happy play bike that wallows on the ups Claud Butler often turn in well specced, well priced mid-range offerings lose the clunky Octalink chainset for a more up-to-date Hollowtech system.
What are we looking at? The steel frame is made from Reynolds tubing, brazed into fairly typical racing bike geometry. The seat tube is laid-back at a shallow angle, giving the rider good leverage to muscle around a heavy gear. This is a medium to large bike, and the size seems odd. In this era seatposts were not intended to extend very far beyond the frame, likewise the handlebar stem is just a few inches above the top tube.
The saddle is a Brooks, handmade in England. Campagnolo furnishes some of the equipment of course with their hubs, shifters, and Gran Sport derailleurs managing the ten gear choices. There is a close-ratio Stronglight Crankset on the bike, a sensible choice for flat roads, not requiring the front derailleur to perform heroics lifting the chain over a wide gear spread. The svelte little sidepull brakes are GB Coureur Plus models.
The brakes, when paired with aluminum rims featuring an excellent braking surface , stop pretty well. This bike has remained in such nice condition that we recently tuned it up and sent it back out on the road for more adventures.

Claud Butler 14 July — 2 November was a London -based bicycle dealer and frame-builder, who from created a chain of bicycle-retail shops in London and the Midlands. The Claud Butler brand was bought from the receivers by other companies, and they are now produced by Falcon Cycles , a division of Tandem Group.

His bikes were ridden at the world championship in Copenhagen and then in Italy , France and Germany Claud Butler bikes also competed at the Los Angeles Olympics in He celebrated the popularity of his bicycles with bands and entertainment held at the Manor Street works.
He was a founder of the Lightweight Manufacturers’ Association and for a period its secretary. David Palk said: “Claud Butler was a showman-entrepreneur who had grasped every available opportunity to promote and develop a successful business. For instance, how many other quality lightweight manufacturers promoted an annual ‘do’ with a dance band and cabaret acts, or produced a pin badge, or were active sponsors of well known international riders, or placed regular display advertising in Cycling, or used their proprietor’s personality in the form of a cartoon caricature, or marked their jubilee with special models, or claimed to be both “The King of Lightweights” and “Just one of the boys”?
Nobody else in the trade was able to equal the zest or flamboyance of Claud Butler. Claud Butler tried to return to business several times throughout the s but could not recapture the success of the interwar period. He died at home in London on 2 November after a long illness.
