I've always fancied one of these! This looks like a cracker! Be very interested to hear how it rides!

Haha. To be honest I bought it new in 2008 as it was the most hardtail like FS design...but 2 years on, I prefer my hard tails. Great bike, weve been through a lot together but it simply hasn't seen any use in months.

Sorry for not letting you know :lol:

You're ok :wink: I considered a new one but my work only does bike2work to a max cheque of £1000 so it was a lot of moolah to stump up. Plus I found this one and started a chat with the seller.

I've been such an avid watcher I know they go like hot cakes on the bay if priced right.

Only had a pootle with the kids today but already feels like we're going to very much get along. Just nicely.

Will report back after a bigger getting to know you ride today.
