Might be of interest to GT fans...

Was just giving my main ride a wipe down with a sponge and decided to grab a few pics.

It's done about 300 miles since new, 250 of those in the last three months.
It was one of my attempts to get back in to cycling in 2004, but I never did get used to riding it and it was placed in my parents garage until recently.

As a result of it's lack of use every part of it (bar the saddle bag, chainstay protector, bottle cage and computer) is as per the day it rolled out of the shop. The tyres have barely any wear on them. The Judy TT is just about worn in now, still pogos around though.

It's time with me may be limited pending the cycle to work scheme next year. The mrs won't let me build a second shed.

Slightly more 'retro' than I thought, been doing a bit of research and it's a 2003 model.

Wondered why I couldn't find any examples online.

Question remains : Do I upgrade or do I buy a new bike to replace it? Probably not the best place to ask. Hehe.

Frame has disk mounts, is possibly good and strong, is a pretty colour...

Fork is awful though. Boing boing boing
