Think I used various scrapers tbh then finished off with wet and dry before bringing it back with Autosol.

Afternoon,

And @ JimWise
Did you have your 2011 Elite on eBay until a week or so ago?



I certainly did sir. She has now gone to a new home.

I will have the Elite built-up for the Surrey Hills do later in the year. I have all the parts, just no room for another built-up bike at the moment.

I would have thought if you were looking for one of these, you'd be looking for a long time!

cheers

Another Alu Elite owner here. Has been ignored at the back of the bike shed for too long and is now coming out of hibernation. Bonus- I found my bag of custom orange anodised bits for it last night- including an orange original XT headset, but they all look a bit burnt orange/ brown, so maybe won't make it to the build. Pics to follow. Genuinely can't wait to ride it again. It's been 5 years...
