Where do you find these bikes GM? That one is just stunning. Perfect in so many ways from the decals to the Deore groupset.

The double U-brakes just push it up another notch. 8)


Hi Paul,

Thanks take it you approve :wink: ! , The whole bike has all its original parts apart from the wheels, tyres, saddle and seatpost, Looking at the bike it hasnt seen any action in its previous life of which I know nothing about unfortunatley.

Pics do it no justice as it was dark, I will get some as soon as it stops raining and we get some sunshine.

Heathy's BOTM has some serious competition. That's the model the Cranes went up that mountain on BiTD isn't it? I'm very impressed.

Have taken some pics in daylight now, Have also added a set of Tioga's and a black seatpost to complete the look (in the later pics)

Went for a quick spin and it rides very well, Even though its quite a heavy beast the U brakes are sharp and feel great 8)
