During the week I took delivery of my new toy.

Special thanks goes to Aaron (aka Zigzag) for collecting the bike on my behalf in Scotland, taking great care in packing it and posting it on down to me.

Yes this is the Taccoa that was for sale on Gumtree in Falkirk. It was a bit of a random find for me, but I took a liking to it and ended up pulling the trigger with Aarons assistance.

Spec:
2000/2001 Toccoa frame
Sid Dual air forks
Thomson post/stem
Charge ti saddle
XTR M960 FD/RD/V's & Dual control shifter/levers
XT M750? Chainset
Crossmax wheel set

My intention is to swap out the chainset out for a black raceface turbine that I have in. I shall also be ordering a new decal set from Litespeed and possibly the rear disc adaptor whilst I am at it.

The top tube at least is slightly off round!

Bit like my Parkpre - it doesn't stand out enough to shine when it's near all those Paces.
