Looks later than 1992, in pantani colours and being compact. Also aren't those the rounded rather than pointed ergos? Its not my bike, but I would guess 1998 onwards.

Totally off thread here Barry but the weather in your area on the day when the photos of it were taken was brilliant. I went on the Wednesday with a mate to Caernarvon to ride the Welsh Highland Railway and the views were phenomenal, especially of Snowdon.

Hope you sell the bike BTW :wink:

It didn't cost to much. My mate is a member so goes 'free' and I got 'mates rates' too so it wasn't to bad.

Wouldn't want to pay full price though! It used to be almost as cheap to become a member and then get 3 'free' trips included.
