Im from preston in lancs.
Just getting back into mtb after a long lay off
Been a roadie most my time but had a foray to the dark side
When i bought my first mtb in the early nineties a khs montana descent.
After perusing the forums i decided to attempt a retro mtb build
So ended up finding a khs montana pro frameset on here and all the components
And had a go.
Since then i have bought a modern hardtail and a older full susser!
And took myself off to gisburn rivington etc for some practice.
I would like to join in a retro ride eventually sometime though if poss
Im not the worlds fastest and im knocking on a bit
My skills are a bit rusty to say the least but i enjoy having a go

We'll have to do that Rivington loop I sent you sometime, it's a nice route to get back into it and It'll be good to see the KHS.
