wow, what a mission to get hold of this bike!

firstly i had to source a nice one, very hard to do, and to get hold of one in the 17'' - 18'' frame size was even harder.

after pestering rick (bikebandit) who has owned the bike for over 10yrs i finally managed to secure his awesome example, though the only problem was the bike was in sweden (i prefer to pick bikes up personally).

no worries with rick, his packing and posting skills were awesome, and the package was tracked into the uk within 3 days....then sat 2 miles down the road for almost a whole week!

i even wasted days at home when i could of been playing on bikes, due to the tracking saying it was on the van for transit, to wich after each day, it wasnt. they even lied on the phone.

i went down today with the works van and they (UPS gateshead) have had it for ages and were wondering when it would be posted them selves, saying they didnt know where it was going as the box was damaged and they couldnt work out the drop off address.......even though they simply straightened the paper out in 2 seconds and said i could take it now if i liked :? :lol:

i wasnt happy with them, but thankfully rick done a ace job of wrapping the bike up....and the extras i also got with it were superb!

it also came with:

3 pairs of tires, 2 offroad and a pair of semi slicks
spare coda stem
volvo ream sticker kit
volvo team cannondale jersey
inner tubes
spare team volvo saddle
2x bottles cages
cork wrapping
various ahead set caps


looking forward to riding it 8)

I'm glad it arrived in one piece even though late(thanks ups Gateshead duh!),I got those green/amber wildgrippers here though I used to run it with a wildgripper rear tyre on the front because the front wildgripper was a washout..was a tip I was given by fellow competitors at the time and worked a treat :wink:
