Hi,

I've been hanging around here for a while now so thought I had better put some pics up. I bought it new with my first proper paycheck and it is still mostly original. It's not in mint condition but looks good for 15 years old!

Nice, I have a '96 Axis (not the R version) which is the same colours, except for silver on the seat stays, not white. Mine is also made from a different tube set with different drop outs. Wondered why they would go to that bother for basically the same model in different markets? I would put up some pictures, but the wife accidentally put the digital camera through the washing machine last week.....
