Welcome to the site.

Nice bike, good price. I have a bit of a soft spot for Al Megas, but I prefer the '91 version myself (although it's difficult to find one which hasn't cracked!).

Best of luck with the sale :D

Hey Stu - haven't seen you in a millennia! You still got that Scott or have times'a'changed! You on FB? Would love to catch up! Out for a night ride tonight on my 29er - testing a new light rig. Good to hear from you!

Hey Dan!

Nah, the Scott and the Alpinestars Cro-Mega sold on here a while back, main ride is a Genesis High Lattitude 29er at the moment but have a bit of a collection of bikes including some retro steeds, got my Bontrager in the end! Still into my Oakleys, the old Frogskins died a few years back though!

Not on Facebook but we'll definitely catch up, enjoy the night ride!

Stu
