....i made this for my daughter (11 1/2)

the grips will be onZa porcipaws in purple when / if someone actually sends me them - naming no names.

it's a mixed up XT/LX 9 speed thing and will hopefully get it's first proper ride this weekend - weather permitting.


*massive thanks to Gil for the USE sticker which now graces the post too*

Cheers Rich.
Her bike history is Like-a-bike. Bontrager B12 BmX then this.
I think it's a 14". I did have a BRG one but then I found the purple one and flipped the bits.

Hopefully she'll enjoy riding this one!


Ps. Bet the riding is ace round your way! We've got friends who live there. Amazing mountains inland.

B.I.T.D When I was a spotty teenager with a paper round I'd have sold my soul to the devil many times over just to own a middleburn crank, let alone the rest of the kit, how times have changed. :shock:

Thanks for the reply - I live 30 minutes from the Cevennes (to the North) and the roads are fantastic, a really good selection and some great trails too. Wouldn't want to live anywhere else...

Here is another one!
I bought this from GA Cycles, I think it was called, in Southampton in 1992 new and sold it the following year to my mate during our apprenticeship. We are still mates and in 2008 I bought it back off him. In all that time it had barely changed, only the tyres, grips and brake pads, I put the Flite on it when I bought it originally and fitted the DKG rear brake brace which I drilled and countersunk to save weight! The seat QR I fitted a few years back and of course it has faded. I much prefer to see original paint normally but one day I may get this one repainted and source the original tyres etc. if possible.
I took it out for a couple of hours the other week and I loved it to bits, it is such a cracking ride.

Ash.
