hi guys,just found your site,great work :) brings back some good memories.
ive been out of the scene for the last 5 years after selling my cannondale but am getting the bug again :) just picked up a cheap nail trail so i can get my legs working again lol whilst i keep an eye out for something special...maybe an old fisher,nice supercaliber on ebay at the mo :)
any interest in a first edition of MBUK and mountain biking? i had the lot but disposed of them,kept those 2 though :)
any way,keep up the good work,if anyone see's my old bike on ebay then let me know! what was i thinking :( oh well,it ended up in arizona so at least its getting used properly..

Hullo Stew-b !

Nice 'dale you had. I'm also quite new to retrobike & regret selling a classic mtb. For me it was a '93 Rocky Mountain stratos with manitou 4's,
x-lite post, control tech stem etc etc..... Yup really miss it. I'm building up a Blizzard at the moment & hope it's as good as my old faithfull. (it's a new school ride though, hope I don't get thrown off the site for saying that) :oops: Still I'm on the look out for something a bit more retro to complement my other ride, a single speed Guyzer about a '98 I think?

Cheers.

Ha, that's nothing. I swapped a beautiful Funk estay bike with loads of cool kit for a microwave. And I then blew the microwave up shortly after while trying to soften a packet of butter up - it had tinfoil wrapped round it (in my defence I'd been to a party and was quite 'tired').

Last I knew it had plastic platform pedals and a rack on the back with a shopping basket and was being ridden round Brixton by my ex (who I'd swapped it with), she got the better end of the deal throughout the relationship and even after it-but isn't that always the way with girls......

.....I'm off to lock my bitterness up again, before it gets any more out of hand



Oh and welcome - nice 'dale BTW!
