Shimano mountain bike?? anyone remember them making one for the UK.
In conversation last night a mate & I were talking about this site & about how Suntour used to be 1st on all mountain bikes in the mid 80's. before Shimano got its act together & my mate asked If I remember a shimano mountain bike they made - he even remembered the colour of a light blue & white stickers etc,I'm sure I recall it in an old MBUK mag...anyone else remember or have i had 1 to many bangs on the head!!

Probably a giant rebranded .
Shimano does that to promote its groupset .

I agree, Giant rebrand.

This years XTR launch uses a lovely looking dark met green Giant to showcase the XTR groupset. Looks nice, the bike and the group. Maybe things are getting pretty again...
