Oooh, lookie lookie what I found!

Is that a C-Record? It was in the bag of goodies HarryCrumb kindly donated, but I'd not realised as there's a band on as well - I wasn't expecting both options! What a nice chap he is... 8)

Going to order that stem now, then make use of this car wax I found.

OK I'm willing to be the stupid one who asks.

Isn't that a CFR?

Maybe, if the big fat sticker on the top tube is any kind of subtle clue!

Gently done though sir, thanks for that, I'll go edit... :)

Next weekend I hope when the esteemed MrCrumb drops my wheels off (Mavic MA6 I believe, of which neither I nor Google know anything at all, except that getting tyres on is a royal pain, apparently).

Stem (a thing of beauty, very excited) and post are on-route and that's everything I think. So I might get overexcited and pay MrCrumb a visit if I can't contain myself! :oops:


Anyway, now with added TurtleWax, brakes and considerably scrubbed-up Mirage mechs. Not totally period correct, but in the ballpark. Sort of. Not glaringly wrong at least. I hope.

Oh, BB, cranks & pedals too

Desperately hoping the stem arrives Saturday so I can get the bar & levers on and start cabling up... 8)

Been casting around for info and it would seem to be a lttle more recent than I thought at '99, but if anyone knows of a Giant catalogue to confirm that'd be great!

Bought some Peek this morning, don't know what's come over me! :?

I love it, really think it'll be perfect with the angular lines of the lugs 8)

Yup looking at the lugs on the frame that stem is going to be spot on! 8)

Mirage is looking good on there too so much so that I think I'll retract my earlier comment about Shimano.

Nice one :)

Well that'll save me a few quid, I'll take 'Ultegra off my eBay watch list! :wink: :lol:

I've got my eye on some gorgeous compact cranks though, for obvious fat/unfit/Peak District reasons... Can't bring myself to spend more money though! :oops:
