Wow ! i can see why you don't want your UU version out in the mud as i don't think i would either after looking through your thread as it just looks to amazing to even consider getting it dirty and you made an excellent job of restoring the XT Trekker to and tbh i'd be happy to just take that for a quick spin but given the choice :roll: :) ..

I totally understand your reasoning for buying it due to it's excellent condition but i couldn't bring myself to ride a pink bike as i was to self concious riding a DB Topanga with flourescent pink forks and handle bars and the decals but that was soon cured when some t-leaf stole it :o and those frame bags were a good idea but couldn't be fitted to smaller framed bikes if you fitted a bottle cage ..

These frame bags were known as Fanny Paks in the late 80's and my mum use to have a bum bag so i know what your reffering to lol ..

Have not seen one of those bags in years.
Had one on a triple triangle frame. Was great but you could not put anything in it.
