Hello everybody,
Amazing collection, I have a San Adreas wallhanged and a very rare Moho STS T series. I'm looking for a Moho STS R series, if anybody knows where I can find a frame or a full bike, 18" or 19", please PM me.

Nice wheely, dont know if id ride my bike in that area, by the look of the house in the background. Looks like Susan Boyles house or some were that Shameless would be filmed :lol:
Is the collection getting alittle obsesive or is it just a little fun and seeing how many you can get, or do you plan on ridding them all and building diffrent specced bikes with them all?

These bikes look really heavy, what is the typical weight of a XC build?

dont know,never put 'em on the scales! i think if you throw enough money at them to put lots of lightweight bits on 25-26lbs is possible.

and big.eck i live in a council house too. nothing wrong with that.

they are really light frames , mine is a good 60lbs upwards anyway :shock: but i'm quite a big guy so the weight doesnt come into it for me :lol:

nothing wrong with where i live , my streets fine , had a sierra cosworth and a couple of tasty mk1 escorts sat outside my door with no trouble 8)
