Cheers sinnerman

It's where I keep my butties.

Just to add I have raced this bike too, BMBF National Champs DH Eastridge, can't remember what year, possibly '99. Not sure what soaked up more bumps, the big spring on the forks or the balloon tyres. Did I say 'soaked up' I mean bounced me all over the Shrewsbury hillside.

Happy days :D

Great story and memories sinnerman, I think we've all got regrets about some things, I resprayed a '91 YETI ARC from it's original grey to yellow and turquoise, I still have the frame now, but wish it was back to the original grey.

I always wanted a dyno, a mate had one but he'd never sell it to me, can't say I blame him, not sure what happened to it, I've also raced the Schwinn at Leisure Lakes up near Preston, with the whole jeans and chequered shirt look. We could be onto a new UCI category here :?

The shop sounded cool, really living the dream, keep the breezer it's a superb bike and rightly looks better than any IKEA picture.

Couple more pics of other bikes in the stable. Mods - these are not in botm
