Hoping I can emulate on my new project!

I come from Pickering...but i now live in Sweden 8)

Coming back over to ride Mountain Mayhem on one of the Retrobike teams, then off up to Pickering for a weeks riding around Dalby and the moors. Hope to have room for the Pace in my car (taking 2 other MTBs and a road bike).

I think this bike is stunning!
The only slight discordant note is the Mavic Headset - is there a reason for using it?

Thanks!

The headset came with the frame, so I basically haven't bothered to swap it out, as it works and gives a good ride-height (when it gets ridden :facepalm: )

But yes, that French part does detract..... :lol:

My F2 came with a Mavic headset, it was more of a Euro build tie up
and commonly used BITD
