Morning to all. Well at last I have found a place where other like minded types have been hiding out. I thought I was alone in my obsession, but, obviously i was so very wrong. So hello everybody and let me introduce my latest near divorce making purchase. I've had it for about a year now, and done very little with it, but now I guess I have found a place where I can kit it out in the manner it should be. Not sure exactly what the frame is, ie the model, but its light, and while I have a love for steel, it's still a sweet one.
It has this stoopid upside down rear derailler thingy and the shifters are rubbish but I just purchased a fab pair of XT thumbies, which means i have to replace the rear derailler - am i right ? Any way i could go on for hours, about what i used to have and what i'd love to have, but i'm sure that will come later. Any way blessings on the person who started all this, and tell me what you think of the bike !
