From: Gerald Martin Sent: Tuesday, 8 January 2013 12:10 PM To: 'submirbike@fixedgeargallery.com' Subject: Gerald Martin's Look 464

My new Look 464, the successor to my steel Cassani, first ridden around Laun= ceston , Tasmania. Still furious about the demise of (FG 5316 ), terminall= y bent up after a fall, while dodging stoned backpackers on Brisbane's South= Bank boardwalk.

The wheels, saddle, crankset etc., went onto the Look frame supplied by Fusi= on Cycles in Newstead, Brisbane, who called me one Friday afternoon to say,= "Ready to go, collect it and we'll give you a bike-fit tomorrow" as they= would have done, but for the fire that night which gutted their premises an= d destroyed most of their stock, my new build included.

Many thanks to Matt & Craig, I'm now on an al-new, light, lively, road-frien= dly track bike, in daily commuting use, and putting a big grin on my face ev= ery time I'm on it. Built to ride, rather than to look at, but getting comp= liments, just the same. A Campag crankset and a phoenix sticker are next

RIP the Cassani, which had plenty of character. The 464 is the same, plain,= good bones, but a new level of technology and kid-with-a-new-toy buzz.
