Hi,

I saw Adamgent refer to me as the 'girl who brought his Future Shock forks' recently so I though I better give up lurking and get out in the open...

So here I am, am I the first female registered??

I am in the process of retiring my 1992 kona explosif pro frame from it's current active commuter bike service and getting it matched up with the Future Shock forks. It will be a single speed for a while as that was my planned rebuild before I found the Future Shock but perhaps I will get around eventually to a full restoration as I find the right bits. I have had the frame from new and built it up myself in 1994 as a Uni commuter and weekend off road bike, it was my first decent bike (student loan well spent!)

My other bikes are an 1984 Raleigh Night Burner (BMX), 1997 Kona Explosif, 1993 Kona Hei Hei and a 2002 Giant TCR. I have also got a 1982 Night Burner frame and a 1992 Carerra 'elevated design' frame, pretty rubbish but I liked it back then!

I haven't got any bike pictures yet but I will post some as I get them.

I have an active collecting problem, like it seems many of you guys do too, so please don't end too many eBay links my way! I am still restoring my retro bank fund after accidentaly coming across Adam's Future Shock forks and buying them......I was supposed to be buying some new forks for the Hei Hei........hmm, perhaps I really should not be joining this forum at all......

hi guys!
ive been reading these boards for a while now and thought it was about time i'd register and say hi!
Ive really enjoyed reading all your ramblings - makes me very nostalgic! This site has already fuelled a growing ebay binge and its brought back many fond memories of MBUK salsa team strips, mint suance mugs and gawping at Paul Wotshisface's San Andres. - i loved the mint sauce scans the other day - i still have the mag somewhere!

bikes i have at the moment are:
'99 santa crus chameleon
'97 GT Xizang (looking for suitable wheels and bits at the moment!)
S&M 1" original Dirt Bike (BMX)

happy saturday!
mike
