Hi, I'm Charlie, recently moved form Bristol to Market Weighton
Met some of you yesterday on the ride from Welton. Thanks for the friendly welcome; I'm looking forward to joining you on some more rides as and when I can. Current bike is 1995 Raleigh M Trax Team Edition in fairly stock condition -although the gripshifts are gone in favour of my trusty ST-M008s
I also have my 91 Rockhopper frame and fork -owned since new, repainted by Argos in Bristol before I moved. BITD I raced it for a season and wore out the Suntour X-1 bits. The frame has survived though and is set to return as a black retro/modern! Current plan is black Mavic rims on Black Deore hubs, black Deore groupset. Bit "meh?" well I might be swayed into Saint -love the black and gold combo. I want to stick with cantis though for definite -they tie the bike to the period. I have some XC pro levers already (black and gold
). Would love to pair them with some Paul Touring Cantis -but they're pricy.
