Just missed out on a frame & fork I really wanted because eBay logged me out just as went to bid.
This wasn't just any old bike though.
I had a 1992 GT Bravado back in 1992 which was a bike of many firsts.
First race, first overnight MTB trip, first big epic rides etc. etc.
It was a bike full of memories which was ridden hard, had several transmissions worn out and replaced, got resprayed twice, and eventually sold on after several years of faithful ownership.
If there was one bike that captured the essence of my personal cycling experience in the early 90's that would be it.
Anyway, I'd watched the auction all week and dutifully put in the opening bid, fully intending to bid high and win, only to lose out due to a technicality.
This is the auction in question: ---> http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... _500wt_950
, and if anyone here won it and wants to make a deal then please, please get in touch.
Right now I'm just a bit gutted.
I still have my memories though:
