I saw a girl riding one today, but that one was in PDM livery.

My wife just bought this frame for me. Very excited. I had the exact same model/colour in 1997 then crashed it in 98. Tried to get another but already obsolete. Never seen one since. Remembered sentimentally as the best bike before or since. Now the prodigal returns.
Anybody have any old 7700 bits they don't need that I could build it up with?

Auction now pulled so assume you got it - congrats :)

Look forward to seeing the build. May have some 7700 stuff coming up soon.

Yeah now have it. Have built it up with odds and ends as a single speed until I get hold of some gears and so I can try it out.
Happy to discover that in fact it is the best frame I ever had, including some pricey Italian carbon. Smooth, springy, stiff all at once and a perfect fit. Great fun.
:D
