OK here she is....
Dave Yates 731. (531 specially profiled main tubes with tandem down tube after the original snapped, 753 rear end).
The bike that from 93-2006 carried me to crushing defeats, against the likes of Steve Peat,Henrik Djernis,Michael Rasmussen etc etc.... Seat tube replaced by Dave in 2007. Barring a couple of small alterations for the sake of good taste (repaint,better matching stem top cap,USE clamp and QRs plus the "took-over-a-decade-to-find" Rond headset), this is how the bike was when it was last raced in 2006.
A mix of the usual predictable stuff from the UK Pace, Renthal, Venhill, Middleburn,Royce,USE and X-lite. Note custom stem by Dave Yates.
And from the mainland: Mavic,Sachs (even the chain),Michelin,Magura (note carbon braces),Selle Italia,Rond,Gore and Look
So 99% Euro spec. Cassette is XTR as Jez wouldn't sell me his Goldtech one without the rest of the Goldtech stuff he was selling, and didn't dare order one from Hilary Stone. Grips are whatever I had, but don't think there are any euro grips....
For the geeks among you, the very rare and unusual reverse pull Quarz front mech and the shifters are PG Extreme, not Waveys.
Pic for now (in case I don't have time to take a better one)
