My name is Stef ,I'am a member for almost 2 years now , so it's about time for an introduction.
I started biking in the late 80's , mainly did marathon competitions in Belgium and Europe. Nowadays i'am still on the bike ( and also more wrenching them Wink) but in more relaxing way . I'am also organising low profile GPS-guided long distance and ultra distance marathons throughout Belgium.
more info on www.solosride.be
( only in Dutch , need some info , please contact me).
I've ridden alot of bikes . My first bike was a GT Karakoram , quickly followed by a GT RTS 1 , 3 Manitou'z HT ( all cracked ) , Klein Mantra Pro , Santa Cruz Blur , Speci HT M5 and Speci HT Carbon. All of them are gone and replaced by a Moots Rigormootis and a Matt Chester UtiliTiman SS
For the moment none of my retrobikes are ready to see the daylight but i'am working on a XLM '96 (full xtr )and a Speci Steel Sworks 94 ( full XC Pro ).
Recently i've found some nice complete bikes ( Breezer Storm 91, Stumpjumper '91, Bianchi Araneus '91 and a '87 Belgian branded bike named Ludo " Freeway " .
They all are +/-100 % original and just need a good cleanup
So my winternights are fully booked Wink
Hopefully I can start posting complet builds ( now they all are complet collections ) by the end of this year Rolling Eyes
