Mixed feelings upon seeing this bike. The last time, and first time I ever saw one, it belonged to local guy who was a cracking talent roadie, and we were working together in a little bikeshop. Although he shaved his legs, I looked up to him.
He got his hands one of these bikes, and I had a go on it, loved the new XTR. ! that was the last/only time I saw it, as Adam passed away not long after.
We used to block the pathway outside the shop with deckchairs, drinking beer ! and I had to mind the shop alone whilst he shagged his girlfriend in the cellar !
21 years later, we moved into the exact same premises of said bikeshop, with mine & my wife's very own bikeshop, (still the same landlord!) and yes, just as I remembered his and his birds writing on the cellar wall was still there. I also kinda hoped the S-Works would be to !
Top bloke, lush bike that I could have only dreamed of. Ah, the 90's, happy days !
I had no idea that my post would rekindle such memories!
Here's to your mate, and his great taste in birds and bikes!
