I need a new project, something that's not going to cost me a bomb - ha :wink: - and needs to be rideable at the end. I'm thinking Cro mega, T26 would be nice (a retro bike that fits), Brave (yeah right - and I've already seen the giant one on ebay.de) and I'd sell my worldly goods for a Grove or cromo Sbike. Any others I should be looking out for?

Panasonic MC-Comp? Nicely made out Tange MTB OS. Not light, but sure strong. I personally like the way the tubes go from dropout to headtube in 1 straight line. It is a clean e-stay design.

Well, it is not steel, but....

..and what about an Ultimate? :D

Cheers (",). Looking at what's out there (I remember how difficult it was in '92 to find a bike to fit), at my height I reckon I'd be better off with a 'boom tube' bike- - Sbike or T26 but I won't hold my breath :?
