sweet 8)

but very similar feel to the Yo, so perhaps I can interest you in a trade for the Ti, for something Ti, but a bit different :wink:

The colors on that Yo pop off the screen :o

im still undecided yet.

it could do with a full retro build with gears, and im in no hurry to do that, i prefer to ride my jeff jones rather than retro bikes, as my battered body cant always handle the way old bikes ride!

I completely understand, especially with aluminum stem and handlebars, they tend to get uncomfortable over long rides. Now if you go with a steel stem and handlebar, old steel Fats can be easier on the body, well, as easy as a rigid bike can be.

Everyone needs a special bike Richie- one that gets used for very special occasions. Don't sell it. Strip it back down and do the proper Hemming spec build on it and then watch it romp home to a Bike of the Month win.

Hey Rob, what Ti goodness do you have to trade? I might be interested.

If this is on the market, I'm selling a kidney.....

This one would almost be worth the divorce i've been threatened with if more retro stuff turns up....
