have RAMPANT, will travel



"It's amazing what you see whilst travelling on the train"

Or so an older gentleman told me, when he saw my Mythic Rampant, and spent the journey asking me about the suspension, disc brakes and aluminium frame forming

Turned out he was a retired engineer who had worked for Rolls Royce doing some pioneering work with aluminium alloys!

happy trails (and trains) !

Nice! I worked for rolls royce (although jet engine company, not cars) for a while. was a really cool company to work for. They had MASSIVE budgets, was crazy to work with such expensive alloys.
