Only pic i have of my previous Clockwork is this action shot :lol:

Image

91 frame, mostly XT kit, White industries hubs, Tange switchblade forks (which did'nt suit it on reflection), passed the frame onto Cannondaleking, did a deal with him for a Mongoose Amp, the Amp was nice but i did'nt bond with it, soon started to miss the Clockwork :(

Soon bought another 91 frame with the original skinny forks i was after, had a hideous metalic green painjob, did'nt want a carbon copy of my last Clockwork so did my own orange/white patern inspired by the paint on the mid 90's bikes.

Image

Two years on, fully built up and well used (no apolgies for the dirt, modern tyres and flat pedals), unremarkable spec, LX cranks, hubs, XT mechs and shifters, rides great and fits like a glove 8)

Image


Image

Damn it, a shot of this one in action :lol:
