Yep, thank god for Muc-Off :)

Should probably apologise for the riser bars though. It has been my main bike for the last 10 years though !!

Very nice 8) , no need to apologize for the risers, perfectly acceptable on a later bike IMHO (and regular rider), just dont fit bar ends to them :lol:

Funny how the tripple triangle and seat tube pearcing is smaller on the later GT frames, what size is it 16" or 18" ?

It was only the Psyclone that was like that. The tig welded frames of that year are the same as the earlier ones.

Very nice bike, and nice spec too. :D

It's a 16 inch frame. Bought it from Bike Tech in Bristol after Mud Dock told me that no one made nice steel frames any more. Shows what they knew at the time.

No chance of fitting bar ends to it. Not a hope !!
