Have a butchers at this flying machine, I could throw more at it, I know and I love the ride and the speed up the hills, but I am nagged that it is just a tad too big for me at 16.5 ctc, as I usually ride a 14" or less, (short arsed 29.5 inch inseam!) so may well sell it at the right price.
The tube sets were UK sourced from IMI up in the North East and UK welded under IMI guidance, they just cost too much to produce to compete with the Russian and didn't have the Kudos to compete with Litespeed Moots and Merlin, though they were as good. Some of the later stuff was Russian sourced.
