Although I can claim no credit for the build, condition or originality of this bike..that all goes to the 1st , and now sadly deceased original owner.

And a credit to him it is...

So as a timewarp example of this scarce steed..I present the Adept

A worthy entrant I hope.

Very under-stated. and under-rated.

I think it might have been to do with frame size bud !! I may be wrong though !! Maybe even material as I noticed the ally one has that brace too !! Really need to get some better photos up of my white Defiant mind !! :wink:

It's a lovely build (as I already commented on in your bike thread), but you lose some points for running your skewers backwards!!! :wink: :lol:

Hey folks,

this is my Rock Lobster Team Tig SL from 1994.
It is built with solid XT and XTR derailleur and breaking-components.
Cranks, seatpost and bars are syncros. Stem is CT and break levers TechLite.
It seems plain but is very functional and lively.

Hope you like it !

Cheers,
Malte
