Not me.

I had one almost identical but I just didn't get on with it.

The ride was a little lively at the back. I had a much more modern Yates in 853 that was very similar. They were both fun bikes to ride but every now and again, usually at high speed downhill it could / would all get a bit out of control. Given that I have a DOGS BOLX, two CATS WISKAS, a 94 Zaskar and a 2004 DeKerf, it seemed a bit silly to hang on to a frame I was not going to ride much.

Of course, it never occurred to me I might fancy a bit of touring a few years later. :facepalm:
