Can anybody tell me anything about this bike - is it any good - it's in my size and I'm quite interested?

I had a Sirrius mountain bike back in the day. It was pretty good, from what I can remember they were just a fairly cheap but decent UK framebuilder. The mountain bike was based on a Tom Bromwich design (now there's retro), 653 main tubes with 531 striaght bladed oversized forks!! I also seem to remember some Sirrius lo-pros with mega curved seat stays and bright green paint jobs advertised in cycling weekly in the early 90's!!

unfortuantely I missed out on this one - was snapped up - not surprising at £75 BIN!

I had a 653 Sirius and for some reason was not very nice.I always seem to get a high speed shimmy and found it a bit nervous.I knew the difference when I got my Colnago CT1 and moved a lot of the equipment over.
