Steph, Just in case you hadn't twigged, Andy above (at JC Cook cycles) you already know him and you've ridden with him (came to the Old Railway Tunnel with us)
YES, I wonder if he has unearthed a 16" YET? Also I'm somewhere near Grimsby 2mrw (29th JUN) and the 1st JUL.
Of course, how silly of me. Come to think of it I remember a conversation about, CUBE FULL SUSPENSION bikes, because your mate ANDY works at JC COOK Grimsby.
Well at that point I hadn't seen a CUBE (Or GHOST), only in magazines (Believe accounts of something YOU DON'T HAVE, but scorn favourable reviews of complete rubbish YOU DO HAVE) so you know me Ben, how sceptical I can be of apparent good news (This is FULL OF ...., yes well).
NOW, I have seen one (Well a few), very impressed (Not just some round tubesets cobbled together by ET and family), very elegant frames.
Look as nice as Lapierre, which again I had only read about until I saw them at welovemountains.com (Above ROCKCITY).
Any Ben, onto retro matters, do you still have those wrap around bars?
Like barends, but all the way, durango? Or something like that, your handlebars had to be a certain width, or something, I very vaguely remember you having them on a nice ROCKY MOUNTAIN ALTITUDE (Or maybe just an Orange?)
