My old bike. Bought it new in August '99.

It was raced for two years, commuted on for two years, and was my one 'bike' from 2000-2006. Only two original parts. I can't part with it, and I keep it up for the odd ride to work, as backup, and so friends can ride if their bikes break.

Nothing fancy, but I do want to keep it alive. It's not a showpiece :D

Thanks a lot guys.

People stopped saying, "wow, that's a nice bike!" around 2002, and started saying, "wow, that's old!" about two years ago.

Right now it's keeping me fit. I'm just watching ReTread and riding the mag trainer.
