Jeez... £320?

Makes me pleased with the £45 I paid for my frame.... good effort! Like the subtle colour coding
Frame is VERY underated, and has a Q factor, partly due to is not appearing in the product catalogue, and only available as frame only from shops

Thanks G!

Yes, quite pleased with that.

It's a lovely bike and I'll be sad to see it go but the guy who bought it says he's taking it on a big adventure. The last one he did was High Atlas in Morocco - so it'll be having a nicer life that sitting in my garage, so that makes me feel a little better!

Keep up the good work on your beauty, she's looking real sweet :D

Guilty if a lackadaisical approach to image takung anf posting! Due in part to an issue with the paint on my Z2's and not having the time to get the bits over to Rampage for anodising...
That and actually riding as it is

Finger getting pulled out... Promise

I'd love too, but the inlaws are up and there's no way in hell that I'll get a pass for that!

I'll work on it tho... she HAS had a few additions to the handbag collection lately 8)

Exactly..... :twisted:

What I can say, is that having just weighed it on the packing scales at work, she is 11.2kg. Quite what that is in terms of respectability, I dont know, but that is with porky Z2 Atoms on at present, so reasonably happy
