I'd love one of those Avalanches (not that one though - it's chuffin' HUGE!! :shock: ) as it would be the perfect partner to the Tequesta (and maybe a bit lighter???)

Yours looks really, really nice. :D :D

Thanks Rob :D

Yeah, it's pretty big, but actually "only" a size 20 (c-c) - I think GT made 22's also.

Wow. Your Tequesta looks lovely. Had one the same myself back in the day, was a 14.5" frame. Mine was also stolen, but I got it back by some miracle. The frame has since sadly passed away though, as the headtube snapped off. Was given a 96 model under warrenty, so my retro ride is sadly not as old or nearly as cool.

The weather leading up to the Peaks ride has encouraged me to buy this:

Mk1 Crud Catcher!!

The Tequesta also now has an X-Lite QR on the seatpost and a Flite as the Turbo was sooooooo unconforable. No wonder I was in agony BITD. :-(

I am sure people will be more interested in the other bikes that turn up.

Beautiful bike. Nice restor. I like the gold cable ends.

NOS CrudGuard arrived today ***just in case***. With the price of waterproof shorts very high this will keep me comfortable on the Peaks ride. :-D
