I considered a 1.5 hour each way trip but thought not.

Let's see some pics. I'm jealous!

In what way are they nice riding? I'm curious to add one to my collection at some point, and am interested to know what I'd be getting myself into.

I had a look in the dark, and it seems to be in better nick than described. It needs a new headset, and the obvious stem, bars, shifters, wheels etc and mechs. I've got some M730 on 231s. Might have some M900 mechs, and possible bars and stem. Just need some 7 speed shifters I think. Will have better look when the wife's not around

I just found mine a really comfortable ride, and loved the way it climbed.
I didn't have mine for that long before I sold it to a member in the US!

They are heavy but short wheelbase so climb really well. Nice and comfy too.

This is making me really want one again!
