My Steeds: Number Four: the "newer" road bike

The series on my bicycles continues after a two year hiatus... this is my newer road bike, built from various new and second hand parts last summer after the acquisition of a decent used aluminium frame and wheelset from the local community bike workshop. It has now become my go-to weekend bike.
