Why is it that Goat sellers cannot package carefully before shipping? Assholes.

Great looking bike mate and I'm sure you will love riding it. I just wish my old Goat was a little bigger, if it had been it would still be here as it rode so well. In fact I'm going to be controversial and say it rode better than any of the Fats I've owned!

Look after it- I might be pestering you to sell it one day!

Stunning looking paintjob. I remember the campag one ($4Kwasn't it? :roll: ). Yours looks better with the XTR stuff - suits the proportions of the frame well I think. :D

Amazing paintwork there, are you going to get something to prevent the cables rubbing the frame? Please?
