I remember when I was at 6th form college and riding and racing regularly my friends and I had some fairly posh bikes. It is the period my bikes come from.
I just thought it may be interesting to hear what bikes were in vogue with your friends when retro was new. Repack riders response should be inteesting...
Me, Dyna Tech Quantum, Dyna Tech 625Ti road bike.
GB Pace RC200F1 (we all thought he was a git!), Dyna Tech Ogre XT
TS Cannondale M2000, Koga road bike with 105sc
MG Diamond Back Axis (may have been an apex) XT
VG Orange Clockwork LX, Raleigh Pirsuit road bike with a real mix and match but it worked! (He was also the fittest and the only bloke who still wore Oakley Razorblades long after we all got M-Frames!
Somerset, like 'Heartbeat' with newer cars!
