These where a bargain when they first came out(well cheaper than the rival big names).
Not the best bike in the world, it had a 531 frame full xt groupset and tioga bits and bobs, best part was the £599 price tag. The nearest rival was about £200 for the similar spec.......but with a better name :wink:

Cool! Remember the review in MBUK in around 1990.

They discounted them heavily the year after - remember my local Halfords doing them for £400. Bargain :D

right... sorry to bump this up! But I'm now looking for one of these.

As JV said, the local Halfords were knocking these out for £400 BITD, and I bought one! Sadly it was stolen, but it was a nice bike as mentioned above, good frame and well specced!

Anyone help with this?
