Thank you guys very much.
I was thinking maybe it deserves a Middleburn Crankset.
Just in the process of trying to negotiate a 2000 Hei Hei in America, ( 1st year with disc mounts )i cant believe people wont go out of there way for a sale, he refusing to post out, ( dodgy people on dodgy forums )so now asking if i can send a courier in to collect.
Is this the frame that you are referring to? I started a thread with a view to gleaning more information from the gurus on here - but I'm fairly sure that I am correct that this is one of the last made.
