Think i may have posted this in the "Work Bikes" section a while back but made some recent changes (mainly got rid of the alivio
It's had a great many changes over the years. Firstly, I bought some blue hope ti hubs & had them laced to some citrus 517's - soon after I put these on, some scrote broke into my garage. Luckily the frame was hung on a hook to the rafters & D-locked to it. They used my tools & removed the wheels, lime green Z3 lights & the brake calipers though...
I used the insurance money to buy some Pace RC36 MXCD which i still have & want to put back on, but need work.

My mate used it a Dalby last saturday - he hasn't ridden a bike since his beautiful '98 Kona Stab got nicked about 7 years ago - stuck some proper tyres on it & he's hooked - currently trying to figure out if he can afford the Trek he fell in love with in Stif the other day.
I did however, find a dent on the underside of the top tube when "cleaning" it.
