I'd been looking for one of these as a replacement for my last one, here, so was excited to get this as I love the 98 bikes too. Its seen a fair bit more action than my last frame by the look of it but it cleaned up pretty well. I've built it up as a pretty much catalogue build and I'm really happy with it. Just need a bit of dry weather so I can take it for a proper ride....

You, do a catalogue build? I'll believe that when I see it :wink:
I thought it should have a FSA Orbit headset, according to the UK catalogue anyway, but don't have one so the Diatech is good enough for me.
Plan is to ride more and maybe look for a new build, but would have to be something quite special, maybe a bit earlier too.

Cheers magas. Any particular model you'd look for? I think I'll keep the saddle - I actually find them quite comfortable now :)
