I've spotted an Mi80 as a commuter / station hack, it is quite tidy. Is it worth rescuing? It looks like a full DX compliment. I could stick a message and my number on it so the owner can call me.

they were hanbuilt by grisley in canada (look bought grisley to get into mtb)grisley was/is a frame designer who bought the manfacturing rights off easton tubing for frames.it became bad business for easton to make frames in there own name as well as sell tubing to other manfactuers- hence they competed with thier own customers
if i remember they went 70/80/90/carbon and had double,triple and quadbutted tubsets and the top carbon was carbon tubes bonded into cast alloy lugs (also sold as reflex and peugeot in carbon)
they didnt sell in mass numbers due to cost as they were a couple of hundred quid dearer than a similar trek etc
remember they were around at the same time as baker,gould,salmon and the world conquering peugeot-look mtb team
do a search on here there has been discussions in the past
