hi all
since we are starting to have so much fun with the `romax or thunderbolt' thread i have another one. :wink:
which would you rather own?
a late 80's climbmax which looks just like a romax except tig welded
or an early/mid 90's sovereign with a gatorblade fork. :?
this one will pit brodie fan against brodie fan. a civil war.
thanks
roy

Are we to assume the same size, condition and colours??

I'd want to see both before making a decision.

Also stop teasing as I'd be happy with either in my size but they are rather hard to get over this way :cry:

I can make it harder for you to decide. What about a 85 Ritchey Timber Wolf.

hi
i does take me along time to get things done it seems. :oops:
but here is a picture of the sovereign i have.
will find out if the option to trade for the climbmax is still
possible this weekend. wish me luck.
the stem and fork are from a late 90's or early 2000 brodie.
