Got the MBUK where Hemming the gerbil tests it (round a boggy British wood :roll: ). Not as illuminating as you may think...

Ran a 42t/60t dura ace set up on the front and XT short cage over 8speed 12-28 rear. Yeti C26. Profile road 46cm bars. Dura Ace sti right changer, Dura Ace left brake lever and a touring bar end shifter (Deore DX?) to run the front mech. Cantis.

A Manitou (pre 1 bradbury) fork.
Any more spec enquires ask and I'll have a look, I cannot scan I'm afraid.

What do you consider to be THE MTB Holy Grail?
Second question, what is YOUR holy grail.

The two aren't necessarily the same...


I'd conisder the Tomac Raleigh to be the most sought after bike.



I'll second that. :D

The JTR was my Holy Grail...that ended up my Holy Grail.
It's the bike that more or less got me into collecting (hunting).
