I was on the mtbr specialized forum the other night with a discussion going on about M2's and I put a big word in for the site and told them to check it out if they were into M2's as they are now retro and this place is full of them :D

I do it all the time - it especially annoys my LBS when as a result I put them off a sale.... on saturday they wanted to swap a campag record screw on cassette for a bargain basement one because the rider needed lower gearing.

I pointed him to the roadie section on here, he has a nice Hetchins but is at least 65 and is now having trouble getting up hills. Hopefully he'll turn up.

Difficulty getting up hills, oh dear, Dundee is a bad town for hills :roll:

Also excuse the pedantry but isn't a screw on cassette technically called a freewheel unless its one of those weird but interesting Maillard Helicomatic ones (I used to own one) :wink:
