Hello - my first proper post on here.

Here's my C16R (bought November 2005) half way up a Himalayan pass (for those who know the Manali-Leh road, it's at the bottom of Baralach La).

It's got a real old mish-mash of parts including some old shifters (ST-M020). Any idea what year / level of quality these were?

Nice looking bike and scenery and trailer for that matter.

Great to see a mountain bike actually on a mountain and being used as it should and evern better that it has a retro soul.

ST-M020 belongs to Exage C200, so early 90's and one of the 'lowest' groups Shimano made; a true testemant to you and your steed :)

Makes a bit of a mockery of the likes of me running XT and XTR on bikes that only clock a few hundred miles a year. Even fewer of those actually challenge the components :oops:

I can really recommend a C16R... it brings a smile to my face every time I ride it!
