Great article cheers for the link. Sort of agrees with what I was thinking although I am no expert on these things. Not sure it needed changing from cups to be honest like they say.

I've rescued a Tufftrax like that but in worse condition, it's going to be my next project, currently amassing parts before the project begins!

That Tuftrax looks great and very unusual in a small size from 89.

There has been a little run of 89's popping up latley which is great 8)

That long seat tube might come in handy then... I'm surprised it wasn't stuck out of the bottom when I picked it up. There was about a inch showing at the top.

Shameless double post having already shown this picture in the welcome thread:

'94 Eiger, owned by me from new, almost ruined by my dad whilst I was at uni, and now used everyday as a single speed commuter. I'm considering return it to its fromer 21spd glory. Minus that terrible heavyweight lump of a chainset low-end saracens had of course!

Got this back today for 2 bottles of wine (originally sold it about 12 years ago to a mate).
