He He, I'd love another Vit T and now I'm getting back into it I'm starting to see how much I really regret selling. I sold it for a motorbike a long time ago and plunged head long into the biking world forgetting all about MTB's. I custom spec'd it from the head set down to the DT Swiss spokes and nipples!
Looking around the site seems to have awakened some long forgotten memories. Bikes, brands and parts suddenly start flashing back into my mind. I even woke up the other morning tyring to remember what brand of BB I'd spec'd on the VT. I had to go and google to make sure I wasn't mad thinking about White Industries Bottom Brackets and Marvic Ceramic rims.
I've got a Carrera Bugaboo sitting in the garage that I bought a good few years ago on a 0% Halfords whim and I've only used it twice. Now looking at it really doesn't insipre me like the Oranges of old. But I'm so out of touch I really don't know what I want. I've gone from thinking of a new Clockwork to something of my era. I'd love another Vit T but it looks like I'd be looking for quite a while, espcially something around a 17".
I originally got my dates wrong and thought mine was around a 1994 but I've realized it must be earlier than that. I'm sure it was one of the first batch with a black sticker set. Needless to say it's not around any more, the lad who bought it snapped the frame a couple of years after buying it. He took it off some huge drop off and snapped it. I spec'd it for lightness and he took it out as a bomber, oh well.
Anyway I digress. So I'll keep an eye on the Evo, I've always been a hardtail man. Anyone want to buy a nearly new Bugaboo?
