Thanks for your kind words. Going to do a proper photo shoot next week and then I will just hope for a dry, super dusty day in Edinburgh (yeah right!). Seriously, I will probably go for a Pentlands blast soon. Are you local to Edinburgh, if not, know any Macdaddies who are up for a nostalgia blast? I work at Edinburgh Bicycle Co-Op, so feel free to pop in and say howdy! 8)

It was from a dude on US Ebay and he should still be flippin' them. Get 3 for not much. I can send you one if you have no luck.

Good shop 8) I went in a few times in the late nineties to oogle over some hugi hubs they had in :D
Last thing i got from ebc was a light that was broken,but got fobbed off with some bullsiht.In their defence they did refund me totally and were cool about things,it wouldnt stop me going there,was just one of those things.
